    THE TOILTS/ SHITOONS OF THE GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL WHERE I AM WORKING ARE SO FILTHY , IT MAKES GUILTY FOR LOOKING AT IT. THERE IS PROVERB \” A GOOD PICTURE IS EQUAL TO 1000 WORDS\” BUT WHEN IT COMES TO TOILETS/ SHITOONS/ SANDAS /WHATEVER WORDS YOU ARE FAMILIAR. BEING FILTHY IT IS NOT DISTURBING, DISASTEROUS AS MENTIONED IN THIS ARTICLE LEADING TO MISERABLE DEATH. ONE CAN CALL IT A ACT OF NEGLIGENCE LEADING SPREAD OF DISEASES, DISABILITIES & EVEN THE DEATHS UNREPORTED. ( FOR SURE), EXCEPT IN FEW RARE CASES. WHEN EVER I RAISED SUCH ISSUES THE FUNNY GUYS ,THROW A SARCASTIC SMILE AT ME. KEEP MUM LIKE A CRIMINALS WITH OUT UTTERING A WORD. \” SWACTH BHARAT\” IS A WONDERFUL INITIATIVE . But \”SACH / SATYA BARTH IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT\” . OTHER WISE EVERY THING LOOKS BETTER ON THE PAPERS, ANDREALITY BEING DIFFERENT.
