10:00 am 6 Aug, 2017


Public toilets and urinals are very important, especially in a country like India, and, if possible, they should be made available at all locations for public convenience. The absence of it not only cause inconvenience to public, but the goal of total cleanliness that the country is attempting to in next few years through PM Modi’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ or Clean India initiative will be achieved only when toilets are built and made available at all locations.

But we will not be talking about the importance of public toilets or urinal sheds or cleanliness here in this post. What we will be talking about is something very interesting – quirky public toilets and urinals from around the world!
