Toilet For Babli

Leave a Comment

India - who don't know this country today. India is becoming very famous across the globe these days because of scientific inventions we did on mars mission, our strong army comes 3rd in the world, our technology, etc. Our country is lacking in nothing but still there are some serious problems in India which need to resolved.

India's one the serious problem is people "defecating in open". This is the very serious problem. Consider the case when Indian babli/women defectes in open. How shameless thing is this. Couldn't we take the initiative to stop this very serious issue.

Do you think "Swatchh Bharat Abiyaan" can be successful abhiyaan without stopping defecating in open ? Do you think disease like diarrhea, typhoid, intestinal infection, etc can be stopped without stopping defecating in open ?

India's total population is 125 crores and you'll shocked when to come to know that approx 54% of the Indian people defecate in open. It simply means that 597 million people in India defecates in open. This is mainly due to lack of sanitation facilities and women's are most impacted by lack of sanitation facilities in India. In India lot of diseases are spreading due to lack of toilets and hygiene. Cleanliness is very important for health. Don't you think so ?

Not only this in some of villages of India, due to lack of water or due to the lack of awareness of diseases more than 50% of the people do not wash their hands after defecating. Only 1/3rd people in India knows that they need to wash their hands before eating and making the food. Just think how much disease the rest 75% of people can spread by not washing their hands before making or eating the food.

If we particular talk about holy Ganga river. In every minute approx 1 million sewage is dumped into it. How bad it is ? Thousands of people die every year just because of diarrhea. Isn't it shocking for you ? About 2 hundred thousand children's die every year when they're just under four. Ain't you feel for them ?

I would like to share one small incident with you. Recently I was traveling to Bhopal, Madya Pradesh. It was 6am in the morning and Bhopal was about to come within 2 hours. The train stopped on some station. I don't remember the station exactly but the halt was of 15 minutes. Then I went down on the platform to buy the tea and what I saw was very shameful for me as being the citizen of India. I saw that few people were defecating on the railway tracks. Look at the people of India, They even hasn't left the railway tracks. I mean is it a place to defecate.

At the moment only when I saw that stuff, I through my tea and rushed back to get inside my train compartment. I was about to vomit. Even it is written on every toilet of the train that " Do not use Latrine, While train is at the station " ! How much tourist can get irritated by seeing that stuff. 

Couldn't we can stop this ? Oh ofcourse we can !
