Indian Bid To Stop Public Peeing

Volunteers armed with drums and whistles are being used under a new scheme to shame people going to the toilet in public in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, officials say, according to BBC.

The scheme was launched on Monday in 34 villages in Jhunjhunu district. Four to five people will “shout, beat drums or blow a whistle” if they see anyone urinating or defecating in the open, an official told the BBC.

      They say ignorance and fraud go hand in hand- Carl Jung

      1/3 of the world’s diabetics patients (300million) live in India
      Whenever you find something is inconsistent look at the mirror that’s where the answer lies.

      Why is it that only men are found like dogs next to a lamp post and not women (multitask at work) is because man still is primitive macho animal. I am a man too but I call a spade a spade.

      Bladder control problems can often be effectively treated.

      Urinary incontinence is surprisingly common. “It is estimated that 13% of women and 5% of men have some degree of urinary incontinence.” Stress incontinence and overactive bladder (OAB) are the main causes of incontinence. Stress incontinence, which is more common in women, causes urine to leak when you laugh or cough. Overactive bladder, also called urge incontinence, is caused by urinary muscle spasms that cause an urgency to urinate. Incontinence can also be caused by multiple pregnancies, being overweight and genetic weaknesses.

    Not much of a difference between man and dog when the urge comes.

      Gamini,
      I have to share this joke as it sums up the issue. The President of the US was being taken around India and to his amazement found men ‘peeing’ on the walls and in an very condescending manner told the PM of India, “I see your people have a lot to learn about toilet habits”. The scene shifts to the US when the President of the US was taking the PM of India around. Somewhere near the White House he spotted a man doing the same thing onto a wall. Hmmm said the PM to the President, you guys are not far behind in your toilet manners! Oh that, responded the President, that is the Indian Ambassador!
      Senguttuvan, I cannot agree with you more. I think with the development taking place in India, there should be a credible education program to change the culture with respect to these toilet emergencies. Of course this should be preceded by a program to build public conveniences and to maintain them to a high standard.

        Good one Jamal. Another deplorable habit and a Notice displayed in the old Railway carriages and Public Places I noticed, ‘Spitting is Prohibited’. One is that the habit of betel chewing was rampant then. Thank heavens, the young Sri Lankans have eshewed the habit to a great extent. Still I find some of the Public resort to spitting in public, also a health hazard. It is as bad as urinating in public.

          Here’s another one which displays our inimitable Sri Lankan humor. Down in Asgiriya, Kandy there is a garage with the storm water drain running on the edge of the road. The garage owner was vexed by some pedestrians who used to relieve themselves into the drain causing him to bear the stench. So he put up a sign board which read ” Muthraa kireema ballanta pamanuyy! “

    If India is to find her place as an up and coming industrial-commerical power, which most Indians prefer they already
    are, one of the first things her State/Federal Govts
    must give topmost priority is (1) to ensure availability of
    drinking water to all of India (2) clean, stench-free public
    conveniences initially in all urban/areas and cities in India
    (3) remove the world-wide impression most of India are just open
    lavatories.

    Unless this is done, the so called great achievements of the Ambanis,
    Karunanidhis-Jayalalithas, Sharad Pawars, Tendulkars/Dhonis, Sharuk Khan and the Bollywood demi-gods mean very little. In China’s favour one must say although whereas both India and China started at the same low economic levels in the mid-1940s China has managed to convert itself into a fairly modern society with more than average hygiene/sanittion facilities. India appears to be quite happy to remain in her medieval sanitation achievements. This is a terrible indictment on all Indians. Relatively, Sri Lankans enjoy a much better Physical Quality of Life – although we have far to go in providing public conveniences in the City of Colombo environs. Many who visit the Chennai airport today will note even in that modern building, recently built, the toilet facilities are shocking. Most wash-rooms lack in water and generate a totally unacceptable foul odour. As Arundathi Roy noted “India lives in several centuries – simultaneously”

      Undoubtedly, it was China that gave the Potty to the west!

      But you don’t know China as I do ha ha. Folk carry a tin and in the bus there is a tin(environmentaly friendly). Toilets are unisex (they don’t think- you ;) there are no doors to the WC; practical; because you see your woman every day don’t you (you see the conservative MIA Tamil ha ha). They make the cubicles in lines of hundred at any super market. Even in hospitals you find kids excreta all over landings and their pants are slit in the rear- poverty 150 million unemployed, 30 million CPC party men and their relatives own it all. Enough said.
      The Japanese and the Koreans call them dirty; dirty. The Japanese and the Koreans don’t offer contracts to Chinese companies without total refurbishing of the workers toilets to 5 star standards- that’s a blessing because we would be contacting disease later not knowing where it came from. It’s a well-known fact in the west (nothing racial) that the Chinese are not hygienic always digging gold not washing hands with soap and preparing food. I am careful which restaurant I go since I travel there frequently. Go see for yourself, but keep to self as we cannot blame the folk for what Mao and the party did; they are very hospitable and much more than Indians any day). Malaysian Chinese are far cleaner. I don’t want to say more because whenever I go I stay 5 star because of collaboration.

    Urinating in public by men is the shameful social problems of India,India is large country and the people too are culturally different. They have chosen a way to discourage the habits of public urinating, let us wish them success in their endeavors. If Indian cities are clean, we should be proud of it. Let us the other side of the coin, their achievements other field. Indeed they are a great Nation. We should see India thru Jayalaitha, Karunanidhi, Vaiko and others. See the investments they are making in Sri Lanka.

    As long as indians don’t pee into srilanka,it is okay.In fact someone on this blog commented that srilanka looks like a pee drop from indian penisula. Rajiv Ghandhi peed into srilanka but got peed back in style in chennai. After that indians are a bit afraid to pee into srilanka but are making up for it by peeing all over their motherland.

    Once a pee always a pee they say.Old habits die hard and even after india becomes a superpower indians will continue to pee all over the place,except the loo.
