As an individual sometime I think what is my responsibility towards my society & my country .
Going through one article in one of the leading newspaper I found that Indian government has started various initiatives towards social & woman welfare in our society & I realized that we are really having lots of plans & programmes towards empowerment of women & our society . But has anyone realize lately what is the first requirement for a healthy society & improved lifestyle of an Indian & specifically women in it .
Let's start with some reality check on this problem & some facts related to it .
Health is the most important aspect of our life & our health status depends on our surroundings , our food & lifestyle .No need to mention the status of our society in terms of Cleanliness ,hygiene & other aspects related to sanitation . We all know it very well , but what needs to be done to solve these pain areas .
Recently our government has started "Swach Bharat Abhiyan" or "Clean India Mission" followed by a nationwide campaigning started by all modes of media including social Media,print & television .
I really appreciate this initiative by our government, but don't you think the major challenge with this mission will be our Indian style of people defecating in the open places. Are we gonna do this & then clean it . Really I feel bad for people who live in rural areas of our country & still going on open grounds for defecation .

I read somewhere in a survey that 60% of our population is defecating in open in lack of Toilets & proper sanitation . We really need to work on making toilets & sanitation for our women's, we need to show some respects towards women & girls in our villages & society . The #ToiletForBabli is a social media initiative for awareness of this major problem in our country .
There are lots of organizations/NGO's which have been doing hard work for hygiene ,sanity & cleanliness of our society & their work should be brought into picture .

I would like to mention one of the programmes run by Domex Toilet Academy (DTA) under the flagship of international brand "Hindustan Unilever's Limited -HUL". DTA was launched on Toilet Day 19th Nov 2013. It aims to become a sustainable & long term solution to provide sanitation that benefits the local community & helps stimulate the local economy .The toilet Academy makes Toilets accessible & affordable,while promoting benefits of clean toilets & good hygiene .There efforts has resulted in bringing the change in the villages of Maharashtra & Orissa.
DTA is aiming to build 24000 toilets by 2015 in rural areas which are struggling with problem of open defecation .
