Swachh Bharat mission: In India Brother’s gift Toilets to their Sisters : Giving a loud and clear message against open defecation, some brothers in Udaipur and Ajmer have gifted something special to their sisters on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan festival.
On Thursday they constructed a toilet constructed and they gifted it to their sisters on occasion of Raksha Bandhan festival. Taking it as a special example, some others brothers have pledged to build toilets and gift to their siblings too.
Prem Chand Sharma 35 years old works in a private firm. Prem Chand Sharma has constructed a toilet in the house of one of his married sisters on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan festival in Rohini village, Nagaur. He also pledged that he will construct toilets for the remaining six sisters in the coming year.
Sharma said that I am inspired by the Swachh Bharat Mission of Prime Minister Modi. The collector or Nagaur district has also encouraged villagers to construct toilets. We also got a grant of Rs 12,000 to construct these toilets. I really felt bad watching my sisters going to fields for open defecation. Women wait for dawn to go to the fields in our village. I have gifted a toilet to one of my married sisters and will gift other sister by next year.
Prem also has a daughter. He said that I am not rich but it really hurts me, when I see my daughter going to the fields for defecation.
He said that When the toilet was constructed, the respect for my sister in her in-laws has increased. This is the best thing which a brother can do to mark the Raksha Bandhan festival.
Prem added that the toilet has a geyser facility too and the total cost of the toilet was Rs 92,000.
In Udaipur too, Raksha Bandhan festival was memorable for many sisters in Bhallon-ka-Guda village.
Their brothers gifted them a special presentation that would soon relieve them from great difficulties and inconvenience in daily life.
Brothers have signed a commitment letter to construct toilet in their homes by 2nd October, 2016 so that their sisters would not need to go out for the nature’s call.
Udaipur collector Rohit Gupta said that 7 persons gave their consent and signed a commitment letter that they will free their sisters from the suffering of open defecation.
A resident, Madanlal Dangi said that I did not feel it earlier but when they told me how much difficulty women face daily, then I decided to construct a toilet in my home. What better could be a Rakhi gift for my sister?
Sharma said that The brothers who signed the letter also vowed to motivate friends beings to do so.
