How many times have we debated with our friends that our nation is the greatest nation? How many times we have argued or even fought with friends who had talked about good practices at foreign nations (though it is fact!) like they have public cycle stands at all important junctions, mny public toilets at crowd gathering spots and bus stands etc…! What makes a nation a great nation?
We take GDP, growing multinational companies, increasing investments by other countries in our country & richness of our culture as factors to talk about our country. But what we miss to talk about is… TOILET! Yes, nothing to laugh. Public toilet is one of the important thing in everyone’s routine. Especially when it comes to matter of health issues for Kids and even for everyone.
Have you ever been in a situation in finding a Toilet when you’ve gone out with your Family or friends either in a tourist spots or in your usual office going spot? We’ve seen so many people do it near trees or near walls while walking to a bus stop with our nose closed without even bothered to say anything or create an awareness on how much health issues it can cause to the people who lives in near by places or passes by.
We have only blamed government for not focusing on health issues and for not constructing enough Toilets in main areas or at least in Schools.
It is very difficult for a girl child to find a Toilet while walking in road. Even though it is not comfortable for guys, they do it in roads as there is not enough public toilets in main roads, near bus stops or near public gathering places.
All this mentioned above are in cities, just imagine how would it be in towns and villages. When cities are not taken proper care for defecation, how would it be in towns and villages.
20% of deaths among children under-14 are due to diseases caused by poor sanitation and hygiene. Only 6 per cent of rural children less than five years of age use toilets. Almost 28 million school children across India do not have access to school toilet facilities. She has to do in open places which is exposed to diseases like diarrhea. It is very difficult for a Babli to find a toilet!
