Keep the corners clean

I spent some time in Delhi walking around Connaught Place, one of the city's largest financial, commercial, and business centers. The center has a circular colonnade walkway, and I couldn't help but notice that here and there some of the corners were quite dirty, whereas others, such as above, were spotless.

Someone had a good idea by strategically placing tiles with gods/goddesses there.  No one wants to soil them.....  In the photo are two Krishna tiles and one Hanuman.

Daily Haiku
He who can't recall
Cleanliness is godliness
Creates bad karma

Great idea. I wonder if the Christian equivalent would work for some nasty areas of NYC. Probably not.

So the areas are clean Because the beautiful tiles are there?

Echoing what Alexa wrote re the increasingly dirty SF Bay Area... (sigh)
