On a super cool trip with your friends, with utmost levels of excitement, what is one basic facility you are looking at? A blanket? Electricity? I certainly would say, TOILET! What do you think so?
Gone are the days when people wanted heat, they made fire! Agree!
When people wanted to use a toilet, they had to dig a hole or find some forest space. Agree!
Gone are the very old days where thousands and lakhs of people didn't have the facility! REALLY? The situation is still the same my dear friends! It is sadly still the same!
The situation doesn't exist only in India. One-third of people on this planet do not have access to Toilets. They still dig holes, still use plastic bags, find a tree or the river close by.
What is actually happening?
More than half of Indian household’s defecate in the open. Human waste goes into the water. People get sick, also die! This is also one main reason of child malnutrition. Moreover diseases spread – diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery and so on. This deadly wave kills more than two million children every year. A shocking figure!
Though 2014-15 bought a welcome change in the Indian sanitation aspects, achieving better results is not an easy task in the Indian scenario. People are being offered an improved life, for which they have to change the way they live. Awareness and education is primary.
Toilet hence is an alarming need of the hour. Toilets first, temples later!
Toilet is a must! For children to live longer!
Toilet is a must! For humans to live healthier!
Toilet is a must! To prevent girls from being raped!
Toilet is a must! To protect the dignity of India!
For a better and healthy life, TOILET is a MUST!
