World Toilet Day November 19,2020

The sad part is more than a billion people are not in a position to afford a decent toilet.

The saddest part is, even if the toilet is available, modern humans are unaware of the toilet etiquettes.

The worst part is the attitude of some special creatures belonging to the homosapiens. These specimens are aware of the Toilet rules but insist on breaking the rules and are at home while using public toilets.

“Some come to sit and think, others just to sit and stink”.  unknown

“Gentlemen: Your aim will help. Stand closer. It’s shorter than you think. Ladies: Please remain seated for the entire performance”  unknown

World Toilet Day is celebrated on 19th November.

The idea is to raise awareness of the billions of people living without sanitation facilities.
