It upsets me a lot to bear with the fact that Street View coverage is not present in India! Barring a few popular tourist spots, countrywide street view images taken by moving cars is not available here. Probably due to our backward government banning such activities out of misplaced fears. Heck, even Bangladesh has ubiquitious coverage. No wonder India is still a third world country!
