Last month I wrote about Media Antics. While commenting Jigyasa ( freespirit-jigyasa ) very rightly brought out point about availability of Public Toilets. I am aware of this shortfall in our system but still to see if there has been any improvement in the past couple of years I did a little survey on my own. And the findings are pathetic.
While visiting markets or even driving around on roads which are quite busy with all kinds of traffic or even some biggish bus stops I was dismayed to see lack of this facility or even if available it was either non-visible / inaccessible or unfit for use hygienically. In some of the markets I asked shopkeeper if I can find some place to relieve as my bladder is bursting and was mostly told to go behind some shop in isolated place for the same. Pathetic, isn’t it? What about ladies, where do they go?
I think it is time for so called Associations which claim to fight for rights on behalf of traders or residents to do something on this issue. Will somebody in authority please wake up?
