The run-away wife initiated «toilet revolution» in India
The toilet in own house is not only convenience, but still, it appears, and a guarantee of strong family bonds. To understand it Indian Anita Narra who in some days after wedding ran away from the dwelling of the spouse in protest at that there was no latrine helped compatriots.
Its escape for the similar reasons became known to all India as a protest against a habit of locals «to do the affairs» open-air. Such custom besides other, is at the bottom of terrible insanitary conditions and distribution of infectious diseases. Anita decided on such act also because her husband and fellows villager did not want to change a situation. Men did not want to equip the houses with the elementary toilet conveniences because of laziness and banal absence of motivation. Besides, the local considered toilets in the house as "dwelling defilement». Under this pretext they did not accept the help of the authorities which were ready to construct lavatories for the state account. To so good idea it was not allowed to be embodied in reality.
However situation in this village in staff Madkhya-Pradesh where occurred described above, changed now. Grooms there for prevention of possible escapes of the future promiseds for the same reasons, as at Anita, undertook construction of toilets. The construction boom captured all settlement. The press called it «toilet revolution» in separately taken Indian settlement where all women demanded from the husbands of such works. And all thanks to a good example.
Now India annually loses 54 billion dollars because of diseases of her inhabitants which are caused by bad hygiene. According to data of the United Nations, much more Indians now have access to mobile telecommunication, than to toilets. Only about a third of the population of India – 366 million people – have similar "conveniences".
The heroine of history Anita returned to the husband when it constructed a toilet. For the determination it was rewarded in 10 thousand dollars from public non-profit organization Sulabh International as the initiator Indian «toilet revolution».
