Toilet for Babli

Mahatma Gandhi had once said, "Sanitation is more important than Independence."
It is indeed very true, because independence holds no meaning without proper education ,health and hygiene. 
Babli is a 10 year school going smart girl from a village in maharashtra. Babli lives in a joint family of 27 people and she accompanies her cousins and granny after sunset to green fields about two kilometers away from her house to defecate. Babli enjoys the long walk in cool breeze and she also loves listening to the  fresh new gossip her cousins and girls from the neighborhood who join them on their long walk to defecate have.
But Babli hates sacrificing her sleep to get up early in the morning when it is still dark to defecate in open especially in winters when it icey cold and her surroundings are submerged under a thick cloak of fog . The problems for babli multiplies in the rainy season when the kacha roads of her village have kichad in them and the fields are waterlogged. One  horrific evening of august babli along with her cousins saw a slimy long snake , ever since babli is a scared soul and venturing out to relieve herself is a task she hates.
To add to her woes babli now has to cycle to her school alone, her 8th standard cousin who used to accompany her daily has suddenly stopped going to school. Babli questioned her aunt regarding this but her aunt says the school doesn’t have toilet and it isnt good for big girls to go to school.
Bablis family is poor but they have four earning men and they can definitely afford a toilet. Everytime bablis family tries  to save for a toilet someone in her family falls ill with diseases like diarrhoea and other germ infections and the funds are used for medical purposes instead.
Babli says even if the do save for a toilet the diseases are not going to stop as maintaing a toilet is a pricey affair as there is lack of water facilities. Bablis neighbors did get a toilet built but it stinks and only women folk use it while the men still go out in open.
Open defecation is an evil risking not only health of people but also their safety, and dignity, This needs to end . Domex has launched its “You Click Domex Contributes" initiative at their site http://www.domex.in/ to help for this cause.
