Political Economy Of Defecation

This is a video produced by Several people in India were asked as to where their drinking water came from and where their waste went to.

I have lived in India for several years and in several places. Thinking about it, I have no idea where the waste went to. In fact, I have no idea where it goes today!

This kind of disconnect is not right.

I too have no idea where the water comes from. Probably from wells-meaning it is the ground water.

And if it is the ground water, then the shit, which goes into the sewage tanks, goes back into the ground.

I am thinking. I am wondering.

Thanks for this very important pointer. More of people need to watch this.
