Toilet for Babli




Toilet for Babli

There is an old saying ‘cleanliness brings happiness’ and why wouldn’t it. Hygiene is one of the basic things which people in India have failed to achieve time and again. Why is it so difficult to have a proper hygiene? It is not that people don’t understand the need of proper hygiene but the most important factor is ignorance and no care attitude or rather in hindi we say ‘Chalta hai’.

India, in the 21st century, still has 597 million people defecating in the open.  Can you believe this? 597 million but who cares, chalta hai. People may not understand the depth of this problem. This increases the chances of health hazards and women are the prime victims. For a moment let’s keep the bigger picture ‘health hazard’ aside and think about defecating in open for women’s perspective. We have always been taught in this country to respect women but due to lack of toilets and lack of hygiene, a woman has to compromise on their dignity. Is this acceptable when we are leaving in the 21st century? We say kids are the future of the nation but is too much to ask a #ToiletForBabli? Have we fallen down to the level where we can let our mother, sister, wife or any women compromise on their dignity? We all know the questions to this answer yet why do we fail to maintain a proper hygiene?

Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged ‘Swachh Bharat’ or ‘Clean India’ campaign and very clearly mentioned that before we do anything we shall build toilets across nation. I salute this man for his vision and understanding the most basic yet most important subject which makes or break people, society and thus nation.

It is important that we take up the initiative and make ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign a grand success. On the same lines, Domex has come up with a very innovative initiative with an aim to help make villages ‘open-defecation’ free. Domex Toilet Academy (DTA) was launched on 19th November 2013. It aims to become a sustainable and long-term solution to provide sanitation that benefits the local community and helps stimulate the local economy. The Toilet Academy makes toilets accessible and affordable, while promoting the benefits of clean toilets & good hygiene. This effort by Domex has resulted in bringing the change in the villages of Maharashtra and Orissa and they aim to build   24, 000 toilets by 2015 in rural areas facing the problem of open defecation.





Not only this, Domex is also encouraging people across the country to participate and be a part of this beautiful initiative. If you want to bring the change in the lives of millions of kids, thereby showing your support for the Domex Initiative, all you need to do is “click” on the “Contribute Tab” on www.domex.in and Domex will contribute Rs.5 on your behalf to eradicate open defecation, thereby helping kids like Babli live a dignified life.

I support this campaign by Domex and have extended my support by clicking on the contribute tab on http://www.domex.in/
I believe we can and we will be able to bring this important change.
