cent of community toilets in slums have no electricity Related News Living in a slum in Bandra West close to the railway station Vijaya wakes up every morning to anxiety over the trek she and her daughter must take into the open carrying water cans to answer nature’s call They could use the community toilet nearby but it’s in terrible shape and it’s simply easier to head into the open despite the daily trauma Open defecation poses a serious threat to the health of children in India and is the main reason why India reports the highest diarrhoeal deaths among children under five Additionally in women it is linked to other health problems such as urinary tract infections kidney and bladder malfunctions due to prolonged retention periods According to the latest UNICEF report open defecation puts at risk the dignity of women in India and they are constrained to relieve themselves only under the cover of dark for reasons of privacy This reality is faced by over 20 per cent of Mumbai’s residents — alarming because according to Census 2011 over nine million people live in the slums of Mumbai According to a six-month intensive study on slum toilets in Mumbai by Payal Tiwari of the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) defecating in the open is a compulsion not a choice “If we had proper toilets in our home or close by would I allow my daughter to risk her life to go in the open” questions Vijaya The fact endorsed by a recent study by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is that toilets in slums are in a deplorable state The BMC study revealed that 58 per cent of communitytoilets in slums have no electricity 78 per cent have no water or proper sewerage connection Countless such toilets many constructed by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) or the BMC don’t have doors latches or proper ventilation My own interactions with slum residents led me to discover more reasons why they prefer to defecate in the open The slum toilets that I entered have been filthy Apart from the unbearable stench there are cockroaches lizards rats and even maggots around the toilet complexes In many places women squat with the doors ajar for ventilation Further the men’s and women’s sections are often not segregated properly leading to safety issues for women One slum resident pointed out to me that it’s easier for her to defecate in the open than to wait in the painfully long queues There are fewer toilet seats for women than for men There is also the recurring problem of used sanitary pads strewn around or stuffed down toilets or in the toilet windows blocking ventilation Why cannot women who use them dispose of them properly This is something residents can control Children almost always defecate in the open According to Tiwari “Children are often shooed away from toilet queues because they take too much time Also it is easier for children to squat anywhere” Open defecation as a practice is inculcated in children when they are young making the act acceptable to them This is an outcome of the lack of infrastructure and the lack of motivation to put an end to the practice According to the ORF report at the Jai Santoshi Mata Nagar slum in Sahargaon Andheri East there’s only a handful of toilets for the thousands of slum residents These toilets are in such despicable condition that residents prefer to defecate along both sides of the road either early in the morning or after dark using umbrellas to cover themselves In the Ambujwadi slum in Malvani there’s not a single toilet so residents have no choice but to defecate in the forested area nearby An area has been designated as the community toilet and men’s and women’s sections identified But it’s the women who suffer the most protecting their dignity from Peeping Toms with cameras The women speak of men with their pants down making lewd gestures at them In the monsoon the area becomes slushy leading to accidents especially among the elderly women In one incident a girl was abducted when she went to defecate Another time a woman was saved by her alert mother-in-law before she could be dragged away by men Women here also have to keep a lookout for wild pigs Disturbingly to avoid going to the jungle some women especially pregnant women use a designated sari to defecate in There’s a wide gap between demand and supply Did you know that in Mumbai currently there’s only one toilet seat per 1800 women and that there’s a shortfall of over 65000 public toilet seats As I see it the root of the problem lies in the lack of willingness to address public issues A comprehensive and uniform policy for the maintenance and construction of public toilets is what we need Hollow election-time promises will only compound the problems for women Prashant Patil deputy municipal commissioner says pay-and-use toilets are better because they are maintained better The reality however is that all toilets in slums are overused under-cleaned and insufficient for the population Vijaya points out that the public toilet close to her home was constructed by a local politician years ago The politician gave them locks to keep the toilet complex safe but the latches were soon broken by those who came from the railway station nearby to use the toilet Now the drains are perpetually choked “In the monsoon the gutters right outside our homes overflow and the stench is unbearable” says Vijaya She brings things into perspective She points out that politicians only repair or construct toilets when it’s election time Soon after elections the people are forgotten From the recommendations in the ORF report and my own investigation I believe sanitation in Mumbai’s slums is a top priority Building a minimum of 100000 new toilet seats before the end of 2016 is a must These toilets must be useable connected to the sewerage system and electrified I recommended that new legislation be brought in to make the UN-endorsed right to safe water and sanitation a fundamental right of every Indian citizen I propose the creation of a single empowered and apex-level Mumbai sanitation and cleanliness authority under the BMC that does away with multiple agencies I also propose looking into bio-toilets This is really the need of the hour and I cannot stress enough the importance of adequate improved and safe sanitation for the city of Mumbai

stampede Thursday at the annual hajj pilgrimage Saudi authorities said The crush happened in Mina a large valley about five kilometers (three miles) from the holy city of Mecca that has been the site of hajj stampedes in years past Representational image AP Mina is where pilgrims carry out a symbolic stoning of the devil by throwing pebbles against three stone walls It also houses more than 160000 tents where pilgrims spend the night during the pilgrimage The Saudi civil defense directorate earlier said at least 450 other pilgrims were injured in the stampede on Street 204 in Mina It was not immediately clear if some of those previously listed as injured were included in rising death tolls Amateur video shared on social media showed a horrific scene with scores of bodies — the men dressed in the simple terry cloth garments worn during hajj — lying amid crushed wheelchairs and water bottles along a sunbaked street Survivors assessed the scene from the top of roadside stalls near white tents as rescue workers in orange and yellow vests combed the area Photos released by the directorate on its official Twitter account showed rescue workers helping the wounded onto stretchers and loading them onto ambulances near some of the tents Some 2 million people are taking part in this year’s hajj pilgrimage which began Tuesday Saudi authorities take extensive precautions to ensure the security of the hajj and the safety of pilgrims But tragedies are not uncommon The stampede was the deadliest disaster at the hajj since 2006 when more than 360 pilgrims were killed in a stampede in the same area Another stampede at Mina in 2004 left 244 pilgrims dead and hundreds injured Thursday’s stampede happened less than two weeks after a giant construction crane came crashing down on the Grand Mosque in Mecca the focal point of the hajj That accident on Sept 11 killed at least 111 people and injured more than 390 Authorities blamed the crane collapse on high winds during an unusually powerful storm AP Written by Sarah Hafeez | New Delhi | Published: March 11 2017 3:23 am Only 2 per cent of this year’s budget was allotted to buses Top News The Delhi government had last year dropped its plans to buy 1000 low-floor DTC buses which is why no capital outlay for new buses has been earmarked in this year’s budget government sources have told The Indian Express “The government had not been able to buy buses for the last two years which is why efforts were curtailed They are concentrating on hiring new buses under the cluster scheme” sources in the government said The DTC has not floated a tender in more than a year now and has no plans to do so either sources said “The AAP government does not seem interested in making efforts to procure buses after three tendering processes since 2014 failed to lure manufacturers” they said The 1000 buses to be introduced under the premium bus scheme fell through last year after allegations of corruption The premium service was shelved in June 2016 after the Lieutenant Governor withheld his approval to the scheme on the grounds that it “favoured a particular company” That left the government with 1000 cluster buses which had already been tendered in 2011 and were only waiting to be brought on road as soon as space was made for them in existing depots Of the 1000 buses proposed in last year’s budget only 200 cluster buses were hired That leaves roughly 800 buses of which the government has proposed to hire 736 in this year’s budget No new purchase explains the reduction in capital expenditure on buses and bus depots from Rs
