Have you ever been to a Men's room in India? The Public Toilets in Indian Bus stands, Cinema halls and Railway stations have a major role to play in the increasing death rate of the male population in India. I have never been to a Ladies' room. So I am not qualified to comment on that subject. (My friend Robert might have the answer)

The Men's room is one place where every man will use one of his hands to clip his nose. When ever I visit a public toilet in India, I always wish that I had more than two hands.

Almost every Men's public toilet in India has two sections

1) The Urinal
2) The Motional

One could survive in the first section. But chances of survival in the latter section is very less.

The main difference between the Urinal and the Motional is that the Motional section has doors and offers privacy. Finding a place to keep your feet on the floor is very difficult in such sections.

Most of the doors have cloth hangers and in most of these "Motionals", one could find at least one Underwear hanging on the hanger. A careful analysis of the underwear would reveal dirt stains in the form of Africa map and Europe map. These underwears can be used by Geography teachers to teach their students. If only these doors and walls had eyes to cry and mouths to wail, they would have created havoc which inturn would have made the Government to clean up the mess.

You can never find a lizard, rat, fly or even a mosquito in a men's room. They all suffer instant death when ever they try to venture into the men's room.Some of these Motionals do not even have a door. This gives unpleasant surprises to oncoming passengers who try to enter the motionals. Chronicwriter has given unpleasant surprises to a couple of passengers in his lifetime.

How ever, things are lot different in Singapore. The Public toilets are so clean. They even have a pleasant aroma. Some Men's room even remind me of Bakeries. People even have photo sessions in the men's room.The picture below was taken in a men's room.(Chronicwriter is the one in the right)

The toilets in Singapore are so clean that one can even eat food inside them. Detailed care and affection is given in designing the interiors in these toilets. I don't understand the reason for the presence of a flower-vase inside a toilet. I remember my childhood days when I had the habit of peeing on the Shoeflower Pot in our garden. When ever I see the flower-vases in a loo, I am always tempted to re-live my childhood days. I hope that History would not be repeated.

Am I saying that India is no good compared to Singapore? NO. Never. I love India
for one reason. When you have to go, you can go anywhere. You don't have to search for a public toilet to let free of the Uric acid in liquid form. All you need is a wall. But you can never do that in Singapore. If you pee in public, you will have to end up paying a fee for that. There are cameras everywhere. The last thing you want is your public Watering Video to appear on youtube.

Singapore : You can Kiss in Public. But you can't Piss in Public

India: You can't Kiss in Public. But you can Piss in Public

Note: Today (November 19th) is International Men's day. It is also International Toilet day. Hence this post. Happy Men's day wishes to all men around the globe and Happy International Toilet day wishes to all the women around the globe.
