    A newly-wed woman in a village in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh recently left her husband's home because the house had no toilet.
    Anita Narre returned eight days later after her husband, a daily wage worker, built one with savings and aid from villagers.
    An NGO announced a $10,000 reward for Mrs Narre for her "brave" decision and forcing her husband to build a toilet.
    How romantic :pac:

    Special funds are made available for people to construct toilets to promote hygiene and eradicate the practice of faeces collection - or scavenging - which is mainly carried out by low-caste people.

    :pac:

    There are several houses around here that have no toilet. And some do not have water installed either.

    As happy as a pig in $hit.

    where did this saying come from ??

    Years ago before there were toilets you would $hit in an outhouse.

    The hole underneath the outhouse allowed the human poo to travel into a pit where the pigs would come and eat the human poo.

    so basically ehh - that ain't bacon you're eatin - lol

    You're Welcome !!

    here's a vid of an excited pig waiting for the human to finish his turd so he can eat it !!

    There are lots of poor countries, and India isn't the worst by a long shot, world's largest democracy and all that.

    What really worries me about India is the traditions that are keeping the place hidebound and will probably continue to do so for the next thousand years. Many many people are living the exact same sort of lives that they lived there in the tenth century, and there doesn't seem to be much widespread demand for change.

    I've no clue how you'd go about tackling that problem. Its like society as a religion.

    Now here's a word I have never heard before. Filed away for future reference, thanking you kindly.

    Ah yes, the (in)famous toilet pigs of India.

    These swine live on a diet of excrement and their flesh is highly prized as a delicacy in some places.

    "In the 50 years since Independence, several committees have called for the abolition of the practice of disposing of human faecal waste by having it carried away in headloads by safai karamcharis (cleaning workers)."......AKA in these parts as $h1theads.

    I suppose the flavour would depend on what the "user" had been eating, if they lived off of vindaloo, the meat could be pre-spiced!

    I know they had changed the rules so that you could get married in more places, but surely that's taking it a step too far ? :eek:
