Tasha commented on GOOD NATURED, BUT HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SHAMING

Sue, I really like the idea of using public awareness and shaming, and I think it's probably one of the best ways to alter behavior in India...

I think a major barrier would be anonymity, though. I think it would likely only work if there was some way of activating the "alarm" or soundtrack anonymously, while the sound came from some other location or loudspeaker, or something.
