This refers to the report “Man promises toilet, wife agrees to return home” (Dec. 26). Savita deserves our compliments for fighting in the court for a toilet and not for any other riches or comforts. The incident is an eye-opener on how in the absence of toilet facilities, less fortunate women in our numerous villages and towns suffer in silence. As recent surveys show, most households in the country lack this convenience. One fails to understand why this is not identified when the government embarks on exercises to identify BPL families.
