    The fact that India has over 545 million cell phone users as compared to about 366 million people having access to improved sanitation makes one wonder 'why a country that is now wealthy enough cannot afford the basic necessity of a toilet?' Using such comparison, the United Nations University's Institute for Water, Environment and Health (IWEH) in its recent report makes a case for expanding toilet coverage in a country where 69 per cent population still defecates in the open.

    you cant "borrow" a phone..but you can certainly **** in others backyards...
    a Joke i heard while back...
    Nehru the PM of India had the British Queen over for a viist to Delhi...she commented on the passersby defecating/urinating every few yards...and Nehru was annoyed.
    So when he went over to Uk and the queen took him for a ride..Nehru was on the lookout..eagle eyes...and suddenly he saw soemthing thta made him grin form ear to ear..LOOK OVER THERE he nudged the queen..a man is defecating in PUBLIC..it happens in the UK too...OH !! THAT Man..the queen replied..That is YOUR AMBASSADOR sir..we just cant seem to cure him of his disgusting habit....so we gave up...
    Nothing has changed since Nehru left...cheerleader

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
