Toilet For Babli - A Domex Initiative

An initiative by Indiblogger and Domex to give dignified lives to kids.

The country is plagued by so many issues – social,health etc etc. But one of the most heart wrenching issues that we face is lack of toilets for our country men. This is not just the case in villages but also Metropolitan cities like Mumbai. If you are a Mumbaikar and you use local trains for commuting to and fro, the very first sight in the morning that you see is of people defecating in the open near railway tracks. When I say people, it includes every gender. Most of us who would be reading this blog am sure would have their own toilets and wouldn’t have to defecate in the open. Just imagine one morning you are asked to go and use the main road or the area around the track as your toilet . How humiliating it is to bare your ass and defecate in the open when there are lakhs of eyes viewing your bare ass on their way to office. The thought itself is disturbing.

Apart from being a matter of humiliation, It also questions the very development and progress taking place in our country. The year 2014 boasts of India’s successful mission to Mars, but the very shameful fact is that, though we have been successful enough to achieve the impossible , we are still a failure when it comes to providing our very own country men the basic facilities of sanitation . We have all seen public toilets or pay and use toilets but the condition of the toilets are so pathetic that it is difficult to step inside. The thought of using public toilets makes one sick.Apart from the fact that the number of public toilets are very few for people to use, the ones that are available are dark, smelly ,not maintained properly. People in villages as well as cities also avoid public toilets for personal safety as toilets are at a distance from the house and going there can be risky late nights. There have also been crimes reported ,of women being raped, men being robbed,kids being kidnapped and raped while using the public toilets in the dark. These are some of the main reasons why people avoid using the existing toilets and prefer defecating in the open.

 The lack of sanitation or open defecation is also the main cause of several health hazards like diarrhoea ,typhoid as well as other intestinal infections. Recently we have also seen our Prime Minister promising public toilets for every village. He has been giving utmost significance in maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in India. But is it possible with just one person shouting and blabbering about the importance of maintaining hygiene. We can eradicate open defecation as well as the health hazards associated with it if each and every individual decides to. Keeping public toilets clean after use is our responsibility. Keeping them as clean as we would want it to be when we want to use it can improve the conditions of public toilets. Politicians and the leaders can provide facilities like street lights, toilets for use in every nook and corner as well as play a significant role in maintaining the hygiene in these toilets.But again it’s all about changing the mindset of the people and spreading awareness about the significance of cleanliness. Strengthening this initiative and carrying the same thought process forward Domex has come up with this initiative which promises toilets for kids so that the kids get a chance to live a dignified life.

 The initiative “Toilet for Babli” promises to eradicate open defecation and bring about a change in the lives of millions of kids. Such a noble initiative requires support from all of us.
