NEW DELHI (AFP) – A throne with a built-in commode for a French monarch takes pride of place at a New Delhi museum trying to break taboos surrounding toilets in a country where such convenience remains a sensitive issue.

The replica of the wooden throne used by King Louis XIV is among a treasure trove at the Sulabh International Museum of Toilets, tucked away in a bustling suburb of the Indian capital.

The French king is believed to have struggled with constipation and held audiences while defecating to save time, say the museum curators.

Scores of curious visitors stop by daily to see the centuries-old commodes, chamber pots and bidets as well as a 21st century machine that turns human waste into ash in seconds. More were expected for yesterday’s UN World Toilet Day which has events around the globe.

“It is quite an unusual museum and I believe it’s the only one of its kind in the world,” Bindeshwar Pathak, founder of the museum and the non-profit Sulabh International, said.

“The idea was to start a healthy conversation about sanitation and toilets. We wanted to tell people toilet is not a dirty word,” he said, playing with a small black ball made from dried human waste mixed with glue.

Pathak said the museum has gained traction since being named among the world’s top 10 wacky museums by Time magazine in 2014.

“Hundreds of visitors come now on the weekends,” said the 74-year-old, affectionately known as India’s ‘Toilet Guru’.

The walls of the museum are plastered with toilet room jokes as well as Victorian-era pictures of ‘basket women’ in Europe carrying night-soil – fertiliser made from human faeces.

Toilets are a touchy issue in India where about 600 million people – nearly half of the population – defecate in the open, according to Unicef.

Some 70 percent of Indian households do not have a toilet – while 90 percent have access to mobile phones. More than half the world population does not have a home toilet.

Experts say open defecation in India stems from poverty and a belief that toilets inside the home are unclean. So people prefer to squat in the open.

Three years ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a massive cleanliness drive, pledging to build toilets for all by 2019.

So far the government has helped install more than 50 million toilets across the country of 1.3 billion people.

The Delhi museum’s collection also draws the curious to see a cushioned loo used in European gambling clubs which helped members keep an eye on table stakes without having to take a break.

One 18th century pot used by French royalty mocks the English by being designed as a stack of Shakespearean classic books. “It is very interesting to see and read about the quirky designs and the history behind them,” said Vinita Lodwal, a 25-year-old studying to be a nurse.

“It’s informative and funny too,” said Lodwal, as she posed for a selfie with her friend in front of an ornately designed commode.

Gurugram: Sulabh International on Sunday launched the “world’s biggest” toilet pot model in Haryana’s Marora village — popularly known as ‘Trump village’ — on the occasion of World Toilet Day.

As per a release by the non-profit, the mega Indian-style pot, made of iron, fibre, wood and plaster of Paris, measuring 20×10 feet, was unveiled to create awareness about the use of toilets in the village dedicated to US President Donald Trump.

Sanitation expert and founder of Sulabh International, Bindeshwar Pathak, also dedicated 95 new household toilets to the residents of the village.

“This large pot replica will be shifted to Delhi’s Sulabh Toilet Museum,” the release quoted Pathak as saying.

He said the idea behind naming a village after Trump was to highlight the issue of sanitation and cleanliness globally.

Puneet Ahluwalia, a member of the ruling Republican Party in the US, said that such an initiative would go a long way to motivate masses towards cleanliness and safe sanitation.

Installation meant to create awareness

World’s biggest toilet pot model was unveiled at Marora, popularly known as the ‘Trump village’, in Haryana on the World Toilet Day on Sunday in a bid to create awareness towards sanitation and use of toilets.

The nondescript village, with a population of 1,800, in Mewat region was in June rechristened as ‘Trump village’ by NGO Sulabh International Social Service Organisation in a gesture to U.S. President Donald Trump ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Washington.

The Nuh district administration, however, later said the move to rename the village was “illegal”, forcing the organisation members to remove boards mentioning the new name.

A mega pot of toilet made up of iron, fibre, wood and plaster of Paris — measuring 20×10 feet — was unveiled in the hamlet to mark the World Toilet Day, which is observed on November 19 to inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis.

‘Symbolic gesture’

Sanitation expert and Sulabh International founder Bindeshwar Pathak and other dignitaries inaugurated the “biggest toilet pot of the world” model and dedicated another 95 new household toilets to the residents of the village.

“It’s a symbolic gesture to inaugurate a large toilet pot at Trump village to mark the World Toilet Day to create awareness among people towards the use of toilets and safe sanitation,” Mr. Pathak said.

New Delhi: World’s biggest toilet pot model was unveiled at Marora, popularly known as the “Trump village”, in Haryana on the World Toilet Day today in a bid to create awareness towards sanitation and use of toilets.

The nondescript village, with a population of 1,800, in Mewat region was in June rechristened as “Trump village” by NGO Sulabh International Social Service Organisation in a gesture to US president Donald Trump ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Washington.

The Nuh district administration, however, later said the move to rename the village was “illegal”, forcing the organisation members to remove boards mentioning the new name.

A mega pot of toilet made up of iron, fibre, wood and plaster of Paris – measuring 20×10 feet – was unveiled in the hamlet to mark the World Toilet Day, which is observed on November 19 to inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis.

Sanitation expert and Sulabh International founder Bindeshwar Pathak and other dignitaries inaugurated the “biggest toilet pot of the world” model and dedicated another 95 new household toilets to the residents of the village.

“It’s a symbolic gesture to inaugurate a large toilet pot at Trump village to mark the World Toilet Day to create awareness among people towards the use of toilets and safe sanitation,” Pathak said.

He said the large pot replica would be moved to Delhi’s Sulabh Toilet Museum.

Pathak had in June announced in Washington his decision to adopt Marora. He had said the move was aimed to encourage businessmen adopt villages in India to promote sanitation.

Since then, Sulabh International has carried out the construction of toilets for every household and set up of a vocational training centre for girls in the village.

“Organising a programme in a remote village of Haryana on the World Toilet Day was a promotional concept in connection with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to make villages in India free from open defecation on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary year in 2019,” Pathak said.

“Trump’s slogan is ‘Make America Great Again’ and our Prime Minister’s credo is ‘Make in India’, so I thought why not make a humble beginning honouring the friendship of the two,” he said.

Apart from inaugurating individual toilets, two books on the use of toilets and sanitation were also released.

Pathak said he hoped the move would win enough attention and goodwill to raise awareness for a major social problem.

Puneet Ahulwalia, a member of the ruling Republican Party of the US, speaking on the occasion, said the initiative would go long way to motivate masses towards cleanliness and safe sanitation.
