The study really helped me to
understand the real problems faced by my city.
I have passed through many places earlier, but
never really cared about the problems faced by
the people there. But this survey helped me to
change my attitude. Interaction with the local
people helped me to draw the real, ugly face of
the city. Immediate corrective actions are to be
taken to save our city from its state.
