“When I went to America in the recent past, the people there said that they should also have ‘Sulabh magic toilets’ there. When I asked, “America is a prosperous nation and everything is good here, then why is there a need for Sulabh magic toilets?” To that they said there is a sewer line facility in American cities, but the villages have septic tank toilets, which is why the Sulabh technique of converting human-waste into manure will be beneficial there and a safe disposal of stool will be done.

Aparna Mondal, 57, leads a lonely, tortuous life; Sevanti Sardar, 41, works like a maid in her own house; Pushpa Rani,53, sings bhajans to earn her livelihood; Putul, 57,(all names changed)  used to beg in the dingy lanes of Vrindavan before she was rescued and put into a home. What do all these women have in common? All of them are widows and their lives have become synonymous with misery. India had passed the Widow Remarriage Act as far back as in 1856. More than 150 years after the act has been passed, things have hardly changed. In 1878, the British had brought the Women’s Education Bill and within 10 to 20 years,...
