Shaved Vs Stubble

 My hubby is working in a private company.Once in his office, the management had  planned to build an effective cost cutting team and assigned everyone to prepare a project on cost cutting measures and were also asked to make a presentation on the same.The company gave an equal opportunity to everyone and rolled out this assignment to its employees to select members for its new team.The opportunity was lucrative and everybody wants to grab as it seems like a quick ladder to climb up in their career.The company announced that all the selected members for the new team will be promoted to their next higher designation or given an equivalent hike and placed in the new team.

Doesn't it sound good?

My hubby was amazed about this golden opportunity and prepared carefully as he did not want this great opportunity to slip away.

Out of 250 projects submitted, only 50 projects passed the judges criteria and their candidates were invited to gather in the presentation hall.Luckily, my hubby's project was selected, he deserve it also.
He groomed himself and went to the venue clean and shaved to present himself best in front of the judges.

Now the 50 members are in their seat in front of the judges.

Initially a  note was passed to the majority of  the members. There was a buzz among the others who never received one. After a short while those who received the note quietly left the place.

One among them approached the judge to know the reason why they were not given an opportunity. The Judges replied "Stubble is always a trouble." The guy instantly understood his mistake and left the place.

The remaining members including my hubby felt happy on knowing that their well-groomed look has ensured to struck the gold on an opportunity given to them.

Open Defecation is a Serious Threat


In India, more than 597 million population defecates in the open every day mainly due to lack of sanitation facilities.Many people do not have a toilet in their home in rural areas.Lack of lavatories forces them to defecate outside in the open with no privacy.Open defecation creates many health hazards and also poses serious threat to women and children.It leads to the spread of fatal diseases like diarrhea, cholera and typhoid.It also causes hepatitis, polio, worm infestation, impaired cognitive function and reduced physical growth.

Many children aged below five years old in India die every year due to the water-borne diseases like diarrhea and cholera. Poor health amenities make children more vulnerable to malnutrition and also affects their learning abilities.Lack of sanitation facilities leads to the increased drop out of adolescent girls from the school.Open defecation exposes women and young girls at higher risks of rape and abuse.Inadequate and lack of toilet facilities puts women and girls in trouble to manage menstrual hygiene.

Many unwary people in rural areas defecates in open inspite of having toilet facilities without knowing about its potential danger.They do it in open because they feel relax to relieve in open air.Human excreta contains large number of germs which causes diseases. Defecating in open can spread infectious diseases. When people defecate in the open, flies will feed on the excreta which contain germs and then they fly and spread diseases by feeding on other things.For example, if it touches the food, the germs in the excreta are passed onto the food, and a person who eats will be affected.

Open defecation makes ground water polluted with faeces. Drinking water and crops grown there also becomes harmful.To stop sexual violence and to live a healthy life, toilet facility is must for everyone and importance of using toilets and its impact on health must be taught.

Improved sanitation facility is essential for good and hygiene life.Stop defecating in open and start using toilets to reduce hospital expenses and also to reduce the death of children due to fatal diseases.
