Public Toilets in Urban India

India is woefully short of public toilets and these are pictures of the few that are there. Usually prominent places in towns and cities have these public loos. The first two photographs of of public toilets in Mumbai. This one is right next to a garbage dump. Or rather the public has made it a garbage dump.

This one has been beautified a little with plants on the outside. Inside it will probably be stinking.

This toilet on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway near the toll booth is built and run by the private contracter who runs the highway.

Another toilet on the Mumbai Pune Expressway at a food mall  has been dubbed a "washroom," American style. Of late India has a fascination for all things American, and the ubiquitous European nomenclature "toilet" is considered infradig and well, too common to use!
