HON'BLE MS.JUSTICE DEEPA SHARMA
O R D E R
1. The writ petition raises an issue which this Court, if at all it can
solve could do so in a clumsy way. The petitioner has filed photographs
showing that residents of buildings and especially Group Housing Complex,
fed up with the Indian habit of relieving the pressure on the bladder by
unzipping and peeing on the first wall seen by the person is sought to be curtailed, if not at all prohibited, by affixing photographs deities on
the walls. The hope would be that man, the greatest creation of the
infinite artist, would not dare his privies in front of his lord and
would not urinate on the road.
2. In spite thereof, the photographs evidence that the pressure on the
bladder is blatantly relieved by virtually peeing on the photographs of
3. Not only that the photographs at page 26 would reveal that to shame
the offender the owners of the complex have written graffiti that ?Look
here a dog and a donkey is peeing?. In spite thereof, a man is seen
peeing on the wall.
4. Now, nobody can prevent a person from affixing photographs of deities
on the walls of his house or on the walls of a Group Housing Complex. The
direction sought to be issued against the residents that photographs of
Gods be directed to be removed cannot be issued by us. The menace of
urinating in public has to be solved elsewhere.
5. Surely this Court cannot makes a man walks out of his house his zip
should be locked.
6. The writ petition stands disposed of.
