Is the Land of Paradise turning into a real ordeal?

Sanitation issues in North East India!

The Land of seven Sisters or the so called the ‘Land of paradise’ is turning into a nightmare because of open defecation.  The states, that are grouped under the North East India are - Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. Two Third of the area is covered with hilly terrain and these hills are also owned or controlled by the tribes or the chief of the villages.


The entire area lacks the basic sanitation facility.  To brush off this stumbling block, the government has volunteered itself to provide households with better toilet facilities under the Swachh Bharat Abhyan movement, with the funding and ideas of various organizations linked to the public health. 
Sangam Prefab Concrete products Pvt. Ltd., is one such organization which has extended its hands in support of the Swachh Bharat Abhyan by launching SwachhToilet, with the ‘bio decomposition’ concept, where the waste is decomposed properly without causing any blemish to the environment.

The primary reason that prevails behind the Lack of Toilets in North East India are – There are a lot of tribes who follow the caste system.  Each tribe practices a distinct culture and tradition. In certain areas, they even consider open defecation as healthy and social.  In divergence, latrines are seen as impure if it is located in the home or nearby. The men there refer to the toilets as use for only women and elderly.  Moreover, the expenditures involved in the construction of a toilet are pretty high.  A person, who is a daily bread winner of the family, will think of feeding the family rather than constructing a toilet

Women and girls are the ones who are much affected by improper Sanitation. Also, there are many teen girls who quit schools, because of the lack of sanitation facilities. Lack of sanitation additionally leads to malnutrition and other health problems among the public in India.

Sangam Prefab Concrete products Pvt. Ltd has propelled Swachh Toilets to provide solutions and uphold the beauty of the land of paradise.  Swachh Toilet aims at reducing the harassments against women by taking care of their privacy and finally they offer a strong hand in the building up of a strong and healthy nation with the launch of toilets.  Joining hands with the Swachh Bharat Abhyan movement, the team of Swachh Toilet is taking efforts to eradicate the fallacies out of the people’s mind with the help of campaigns.  Also, these toilets could prove to be a total solution to this dearth, since toilets are sold at a very economical rate, aiming at Clean and Powerful India.
