This is some serious SHIT !!

Hey there !! Okay now the title might seem a little out of the blue to you but it is "literally" what I am going to discuss in this blogpost of mine.

If you have travelled through India, and by India I mean through a train or a bus, you must have seen people defecating out in the open, by the sides of rail tracks or in some corner near an empty plot or maybe in a field. We as Indian do not take this seriously since we have grown up seeing a lot of this or maybe some of us men have peed out in the open in time of crisis. 

But for once, think what an outsider/foreigner who is visiting India for the first time sees this, how weird they would feel by the gross unhygienic condition of our nation.  I mean even when we see these kind of things happening, we cannot see it through and just have to look somewhere else out of disgust. 

Now think what it would feel like to defecate out in the open and not having the facility to a proper bathroom or not having any hygienic amenities to seek out to. This is the situation that 597 million of us Indians are facing right now that you read this blog. Yes you read it right 597 million. If you give it a serious thought can you imagine in a developing nation as India, how these people are barely surviving and to top that this unhygienic environment is making it worse for them. 

Now I got this idea of writing about this serious issue from an amazing initiative by the guys at Domex. There is this amazing  "You Click Domex Contributes" initiative at  by which you can contribute to making the situation better just by clicking on the link above.   

You can bring about 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 and Domex will contribute Rs.5 on your behalf to eradicate open defecation, thereby helping kids like Babli live a dignified life.

The initiative has been given a name - "Toilet for Babli". This represents all the million of children just like Babli who are not in contact with hygienic amenities and are prone to many life threatening diseases. Since its not possible for each and everyone of us to get at the grass root level and help those ailing. So the least we can do is help in anyway we can and let the professionals at Domex do their jobs.  

Also to let you guys know about the good work these guys at Domex are doing, there is this  

Domex Toilet Academy. 
"Domex, HUL’s flagship sanitation brand, currently runs the Domex Toilet Academy (DTA) programme. Domex Toilet Academy 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. Our effort has resulted in bringing the change in the villages of Maharashtra and Orissa and we aim to build 24000 toilets by 2015 in rural areas faced with the problem of open defecation."

Once again, I am laying high hopes in everyone of you to go to and please contribute for a safer and healthier tomorrow.  Thanks :)
