NOT SO ‘SWACHH’ BHARAT. THE MISERY OF PUBLIC WASHROOMS IN INDIA!
India suffers from a squalor problem of Public Sanitation. Urban, Rural and Semi Urban areas have their own defined parameters of ill public Sanitation. The poor conditions of public washrooms often act as a barrier for tourists who are out there to visit best places in various Indian cities.
While steps are being taken by respective authorities to tackle the problem, the major issue still remains the mental upbringing of the Indian Masses.
According to recent reports, about 60% of Indian population has no access to basic public sanitation. The Rural India, which accounts for about 70% of the total Indian populations, has always been bugged by a continuous presence of widespread diseases, the prime sufferers of this problem are mainly Children and Women.
Some households genuinely lack the funds to construct household toilets but a huge section of Rural Population has a completely different state-of-mind in terms of open defecation. Recent survey has brought to light the fact that people in Rural areas in some major Indian States associate and link Open Defecation to wholesome living. By these group of masses, open defecation gets looked up to as the ‘Free Time’ of their daily routines. Such are the cases where the communal upbringing is to be blamed rather than government. Open defecation is often more prevalent in the Rural areas.
The Urban and Semi Urban areas are comparatively less victimized to open defecation. But the poor public sanitation infrastructure is same as that of the Rural areas. Timely steps are often taken by the local municipal authorities to make public washrooms, but the problem often arises in the form of ill organized and poorly scheduled maintenance of these public washrooms. Aggressively decorated with paan stains and spits, the public washrooms are a nightmare for any normal person.
