Letter to Editor: Public Sanitation and the Right to Dignity and Privacy

India is a highly populated country. People lack in maintaining proper sanitation and hygiene as a result they suffer from various diseases. India has a serious sanitation challenge; around 60 per cent of the world’s open defecation takes place in India. Poor sanitation causes health hazards including diarrhoea, particularly in children under 5 years of age, malnutrition and deficiencies in physical development and cognitive ability. You are Nitish/Nikita, head boy/girl of Anand Public School, Jaipur.

Subject: Practical ways to ensure Public Sanitation


Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw your attention towards practical ways to ensure public sanitation and the right to dignity and privacy.

People are unaware of the ill effects of lack of proper sanitation and hygiene which results in various diseases. They must realise that poor sanitation causes health hazards especially for small children. It also leads to various other physical problems. Public sanitation is the cause of polluted India The right to dignity and privacy is for everyone.

People should be more educated and aware about public sanitation and how they should utilise public property. Right to dignity and privacy is everyone’s right and they deserve it.

I hope through your daily, this matter will be highlighted and the concerned authorities will make some efforts to overcome this problem.

Yours faithfully
