A clean India i.e an open defecation free India, is a must for being a developed country.
A clean Nilgiris, Nakku Betta, will make us one step closer to the achievement of a clean India.
For making India and the Nilgiris clean, open defecation free, every Badaga Hatti (village) should have a toilet in every house. Where it is not possible for some odd houses to have toilets, there must be public toilets built by collective effort.
Badagas are right on top on many social factors. The most important one could be, Prime Minister Modi’s Beti Bachav, Beti Padav slogan and scheme.
We would have added another feather in our caps, if we have ensured that our hattis are really and truly open defecation free.
Let us strive to bring in that reform in our villages.
Let ‘Kaaduga Hoppadhu‘ (going to the forest for defecation) be a thing of the past.
