Someone wrote in the Indi-Forum : Why is the focus always on the girl child? Don't the boys need toilets? Why shouldn't the topic include a Bablu as well? There's been a few jingles from, I suppose, the NaMo's swachch bharat mission or NRHM aired on AIR FM channels... something like - Ab is desh me honge jitne bhi vidyalay; bachchiyon ke khaatir honge unme bahut se shauchalay.....I mean why only bachchiyaan? Do they expect the bachchas to still go out in the open? where does the makhkhi sitting on the stuff and polluting the food in Vidya Balan's ad go when it comes to hygienic conditions for boys? Do the makhkhis too discriminate between bachcha and bachchi? And I'm sorry to say, but I feel, this is where it all starts, and then we fight for equality.
Why Babli and not Bablu? Why indeed! Of course, boys too need proper sanitation ( and should have; its a must for all ), but importance on girls is because they often become target of perverts who are on the prowl.
