village dwellings did not have a toilet People defecated in the open ‘Swachh Bharat’ or ‘Clean India’ cannot be a slogan or an event It has to become a habit nay a passion It involves many factors including: *Behaviour *Social structure *Technology *Money *Execution *Administration Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan with the objective of eliminating open defecation by 2017 was apparently designed after taking into account these and other factors In the early months of its execution I discovered in my constituency that the design was flawed Village social structure:Sivaganga is a predominantly rural constituency with 627 panchayats 16 town panchayats and three small municipal towns The bulk of the population lives in villages A panchayat has on average 5 or 6 villages and some hamlets Share This Article Related Article In a typical village habitations or neighbourhoods are organised along caste lines Each caste group generally speaking lives apart The Dalits invariably live in their own quarter There is acute awareness of one’s caste but for the most part there is no recurring caste conflict Village folk have to live and work together for their existence Until some years ago most village dwellings did not have a toilet People defecated in the open No one thought open defecation was wrong or unhygienic or a shame Its most debilitating effect is exposure of children to helminths or intestinal worms (also known as environmental enteropathy) that leads to stunting in children As brick houses replaced thatched houses some houses got toilets Young men returning from work in cities or towns or with the Army demanded a toilet at home and helped build one Most members of the family used the toilet Small children did not and many women and men preferred open defecation How does the government change the behaviour of its citizens in the matter of defecation given the social structure of a village and the limitations of technology money execution capability and administration Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan thought it had the answers but it did not 30 per cent of the toilets built had become dysfunctional Swachh Bharat thinks it has the answers but it does not Subsidy-based models:There are two obvious solutions to the problem of absence of toilets — a private (household) toilet or a community (public) toilet Let’s examine each one of them A household toilet cannot be connected to a drainage system because there is none in the village Hence the toilet must be connected to a pit The pit must be emptied periodically Usually the toilet will not have a water tap and so water must be taken to the toilet by the user If water is scarce or has to be fetched from a distance the use of the toilet will diminish If the whole family including children use the toilet it must be cleaned every day and that will require more water The alternative is a community (public) toilet Before one is built for the village the following questions must be answered: 1 A public toilet can be built only on government land or acquired land If the land is in the middle of one habitation will all caste groups be able to access it every day 2 If the public toilet is built in or near the Dalit habitation will the other caste groups use it at all 3 Because it is a public toilet that will be used round the clock how will the panchayat ensure adequate supply of water round the clock 4 The responsibility of keeping the public toilet clean will vest in the panchayat but who will the panchayat employ for that purpose The answer is an unspeakable truth in the India of the 21st century and you know the answer Few are willing to take up the job of keeping public toilets clean in villages 5 Will the public toilet be a pay toilet or a free toilet In Tamil Nadu successive governments took up a scheme to build public toilets in villages I found that most public toilets had been abandoned or had become cattle sheds or dens for drinking and gambling Unsurprising findings:I was therefore not surprised to read the findings of a survey conducted by the National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO): About 240 lakh household toilets have been built since 2013-14 but 860 lakh toilets remain to be built In rural India 57 per cent of the household toilets have no water for use 44 per cent of those toilets had no arrangement for liquid waste disposal and “it would be safe to presume the residents do not use the toilets” Of the toilets that had an “arrangement” for waste disposal the arrangement in 47 per cent of the cases was draining the waste into a local pond nala or river The toilet-building programme requires investment in IEC — information education and communication but the money that has been provided is too little (8 per cent of the outlay) The subsidy-based model has been severely criticised Bangladesh has adopted the Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) model that laid emphasis on IEC and has achieved impressive results India must re-think its strategy if open defecation must be eliminated by 2019 Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan failed to achieve its objectives but at least it was not converted into a public relations exercise

diplomatic ties with neighbouring Qatar and kicked it out of a military coalition less than a month after US president Donald Trump visited the region to cement ties with powerhouse Saudi Arabia In the region’s most serious diplomatic crisis in years Qatar’s Gulf neighbours Riyadh Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates as well as Egypt all announced they were severing ties with gas-rich Qatar Riyadh cut diplomatic relations and closed borders with its neighbour to "protect its national security from the dangers of terrorism and extremism" the official Saudi Press Agency said A Saudi official cited by SPA said Riyadh decided to "sever diplomatic and consular ties with Qatar and to close all land sea and aviation ports" The "decisive" measure was due to the "gross violations committed by authorities in Qatar over the past years" the Saudi statement said File image of Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani Wikimedia Commons Many expatriate and Saudi travellers use Qatar as their gateway into the kingdom A Saudi-led coalition which for more than two years has been fighting Iran-backed rebels in Yemen separately announced Qatar was no longer welcome in the alliance In a statement the coalition accused Qatar of "support to (terrorist) organisations in Yemen" Qatar had assigned warplanes to the coalition conducting air strikes against Yemen’s Huthi rebels Egypt’s foreign ministry also accused Doha of supporting "terrorism" and announced the closure of its ports and airports to Qatari carriers ‘Shameful cybercrime’ Doha launched a probe into an alleged "hack" of state media after it said false and explosive remarks attributed to Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani were published on the Qatar News Agency website in May 2017 The stories quoted him questioning US hostility towards Iran speaking of "tensions" between Doha and Washington commenting on Hamas and speculating that Trump might not remain in power for long The alleged comments were made after Trump’s visit to the region However Doha has denied all the comments and said it had been the victim of a "shameful cybercrime" Trump’s visit to Riyadh —the first foreign stop of his young presidency —saw the two sides sign a "strategic vision" agreement to intensify ties in defence economics and other areas Riyadh has embraced Trump’s harder line against its rival Iran with which it severed diplomatic relations in January last year In a Riyadh speech to Muslim leaders from around the world Trump urged them to "drive out" extremists and "terrorists" as Sunni jihadists carry out attacks in many countries But he also singled out Shiite Iran for allegedly fuelling "the fires of sectarian conflict and terror" Qatar said it had also been the victim of a hostile media campaign particularly in the US over the issue of its supposed support for Islamist groups Qatar has so far given no indication of where the alleged 24 May cyber attack originated But regional powers including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates used the comments to demonstrate that Qatar is out of line with Gulf foreign policy especially regarding Iran Media organisations in several countries in the region reported the emir’s comments as fact despite an official denial by Qatar They also blocked Qatari broadcasters and websites following the alleged comments In a sign that the rift in Qatar’s relations with its near neighbours was deepening one Saudi newspaper reported that members of a prominent Saudi family had demanded that Qatar’s state mosque the Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab Mosque be renamed The demand came amid questions over the Qatari royal family’s link to Abdul Wahhab co-founder of the Saudi state Some experts had feared the current situation could trigger a repeat of the crisis in 2014 when several Gulf countries recalled their ambassadors from Doha ostensibly over its support for the Muslim Brotherhood Last week the Qatari emir travelled to Kuwait to meet Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah in what was widely seen as an attempt at mediation by the Kuwaitis Qatar responds Qatar slammed the decisions of three Gulf states to sever ties with it saying they were "unjustified" and aimed to put Doha under political "guardianship" "The measures are unjustified and are based on false and baseless claims" the Qatari foreign ministry said in a statement referring to the unprecedented steps taken by Saudi Arabia Bahrain the United Arab Emirates and Egypt "The aim is clear and it is to impose guardianship on the state This by itself is a violation of its (Qatar’s) sovereignty as a state" it added The host of the football World Cup 2022 said it has been subjected to an "incitement campaign based on fabrications which reflects an intention to harm Qatar" Doha insisted the sanctions which include the Gulf states severing air land and sea links with Qatar "will not affect the daily life of citizens and residents" "The Qatari government will take all measures necessary. to foil attempts to affect or harm Qatar’s society and economy" the statement said US reacts US secretary of state Rex Tillerson on Monday called on Gulf states to stay united and work out their differences after several nations cut diplomatic ties with Qatar "We certainly would encourage the parties to sit down together and address these differences" he said in Sydney "If there’s any role that we can play in terms of helping them address those we think it is important that the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) remain united" Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said a news conference in Sydney that the rift will have no implications for the effort against the Islamic State group Flights suspended Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways said Monday it would suspend flights to Qatar
