दुनिया का अनोखा टॉयलेट म्यूजियम, ऐसे थे पांच हजार साल पुराने टॉयलेट

देश में आज स्वच्छ भारत अभियान बड़े जोरशोर से चल रहा है। इस अभियान के तहत लोगों को साफ- सफाई और खासकर टॉयलेट के प्रयोग के लिए जागरूक किया जा रहा है। गांवों कस्बों से लेकर शहरो तक में स्वच्छता के प्रति लोगों को जागरूक किया जा रह है।

लेकिन किया आपने कभी सोचा है कि टॉयलेट का इतिहास किया है इसके विकास की पूरी कहानी क्या है। आज से पहले बीते समय में टॉयलेट कैसा रहा है।

अगर आपको टॉयलेट के विकास की कहानी के बारे में जानना है तो आपको राजधानी दिल्ली के पालम में स्थित सुलभ इंटरनेशनल के इस टॉयलेट म्यूज़ियम में जाना होगा।

इस म्यूज़ियम में टॉयलेट का पूरा इतिहास दर्ज़ है। इस म्यूजियम में आपको पांच हजार साल पहले पुराने टॉयलेट के बारे में आसानी से जानकारी मिल जाएगी।

इस टॉयलेट म्यूज़ियम में मानव सभ्यता के सबसे पुराने ड्रेनेज की भी जानकारी मौजूद है। जो कि सिंधु घाटी सभ्यता के समय बना था।

3000 ईसा पूर्व की हड़प्पा और मोहनजोदड़ो की संस्कृति में भी अंडरग्राउंड और ओवरग्राउंड टॉयलेट हुआ करते थे। जिससे ये भी साबित होता है कि प्राचीन भारत के लोग सैनिटेशन को लेकर ज्यादा जागरूक थे।

सुलभ इंटरनेशनल के संस्थापक डॉ. बिंदेश्वर पाठक ने साल 1992 में देश की राजधानी दिल्ली में पहला टॉयलेट म्यूज़ियम खोला। म्यूज़ियम के क्यूरेटर बगेश्वर झा ने बताया कि जब डॉ. बिंदेश्वर पाठक ने मैडम तुसाद म्यूज़ियम देखा तो उन्होंने तुरंत भारत लौटकर टॉयलेट म्यूज़ियम बनाने की ठानी थी।

इसके बाद डॉ. बिंदेश्वर पाठक ने दिल्ली स्थित सभी देशों के दूतावासों को चिट्ठी लिखकर उनसे अपने-अपने देश के टॉयलेट संबंधी फैक्ट्स, फिगर्स और फोटोग्राफ्स मांगे थे। डॉ. बिंदेश्वर पाठक के इस पहल का सभी लोगों ने स्वागत किया था और सभी लोगों ने मिलकर सहयोग भी दिया।

टॉयलेट म्यूज़ियम के बारे में जानकारी मिलने के बाद धीरे-धीरे ये म्यूज़ियम बनकर तैयार भी हो गया। टाइम मैगज़ीन के सर्वे में ये म्यूज़ियम दुनिया के 10 सबसे अनोखे म्यूज़ियम में से एक है।

स्कूली छात्र ही हैं स्वच्छता मिशन के राजदूत:जावडेकर

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

नई दिल्ली : मानव संसाधन विकास मंत्री प्रकाश जावडेकर ने कहा है कि स्वच्छता अभियान के असली राजदूत छात्र ही हैं और क्लीन इंडिया से ही 2022 में न्यू इंडिया का सपना पूरा हो सकेगा। जावडेकर ने आज सुलभ इंटरनेशनल द्वारा आयोजित ‘राष्ट्रीय हैण्ड वॉश’ कार्यक्रम में कहा कि स्वच्छता मिशन से ही साफ सुथरा भारत बनेगा और तब भारत भी न्यू इंडिया हो जाएगा उन्होंने कहा कि 2022 तक न्यू इंडिया बनने का लक्ष्य भी पूरा कर लिया जाएगा और तब यह एक नया भारत होगा।

उन्होंने कहा कि पिछले एक वर्ष में देशभर में 45 लाख शौचालय बनाए गए ,और दो लाख गांव खुले में शौच से मुक्त हो गए। उन्होंने कहा कि स्वच्छता आंदोलन में हर गांव में लड़कियां घर घर प्रचार करने लगी हैं जिसका नतीजा यह निकला कि लड़कियों का ड्राप आउट ही कम हो गया है।

जावड़ेकर ने कहा कि मध्यप्रदेश में किस तरह एक कार्यशाला में बच्चोँ को हाथ साफ करने और अपने नाखूनों को काटने की सीख दी गई। स्वच्छ जल का सेवन करने के लिए भी सलाह दी गई क्योंकि हाथ गन्दा रहने से बच्चे बीमार हो जाते हैं। उन्होंने बताया की हाल में एक साल के भीतर साधे चार लाख शौचालय भी बनाए गए। स्वच्छता से देश में पर्यटन को भी बढ़ावा मिलेगा यह देशी और विदेशी सबके लिए फायदेमंद होगा।

जावडेकर ने कहा, ‘किसी अन्य देश की तुलना में हमारे पास ज्यादा बेहतर पर्यटक स्थल हैं,

लोग सड़क पर केले के छिलके या चॉकलेट का रैपर फेंकने से पहले दो बार सोचते भी नहीं : प्रकाश जावडेकर

नई दिल्ली: केंद्रीय मानव संसाधन विकास मंत्री प्रकाश जावडेकर ने मंगलवार को कहा कि भारत में अन्य देशों की तुलना में पर्यटकों को देने के लिए बहुत कुछ है लेकिन देश की खराब स्वच्छता व्यवस्था के कारण बहुत से पर्यटक भारत नहीं आते. जावडेकर ने कहा, ‘किसी अन्य देश की तुलना में हमारे पास ज्यादा बेहतर पर्यटक स्थल हैं, लेकिन अकेले पेरिस पूरे भारत के मुकाबले 10 गुना ज्यादा पर्यटकों को आकर्षित करता है. आप जानते हैं ऐसा क्यों हैं? क्योंकि, हमारे पर्यटन स्थल साफ नहीं हैं.

जावडेकर सुलभ इंटरनेशनल द्वारा आयोजित एक कार्यक्रम में बोल रहे थे, जिसमें छात्रों को अपने स्कूल को साफ रखने के लिए पुरस्कार दिए गए.

मंत्री ने कहा कि वे भारतीय जो सिंगापुर की गलियों को गंदा नहीं करेंगे, वही देश में सड़क पर केले के छिलके या चॉकलेट का रैपर फेंकने से पहले दो बार सोचते भी नहीं.

जावडेकर ने सुलभ इंटरनेशनल के बिंदेश्वर पाठक की प्रशंसा की, जिन्होंने ‘स्वच्छता की महान क्रांति के लिए एक मामूली कीमत पर सामुदायिक शौचालय सेवा की शुरुआत की.’ उन्होंने कहा, ‘सुलभ का निर्माण एक ऐतिहासिक कदम है. इसे शुरू किए हुए 50 साल हो चुके हैं.. जब यह अवधारणा पहली बार बनाई गई तो लोग सोचते थे कि कौन इसके लिए भुगतान करेगा. लेकिन, पाठक जी ने इसे साफ रखकर संभव बनाया और इस आदत को दूसरों को भी बताया.’

पाठक ने सुलभ शौचालय सेवा 1970 में बिहार से खास तौर से गरीबों के लिए शुरू की थी. इसमें नहाने व कपड़े धोने की भी सुविधा दी जाती है. जावडेकर ने कहा कि स्वच्छ भारत अभियान के तहत सरकारी स्कूलों में एक साल के भीतर 4,50,000 शौचालय बनवाए गए हैं. इसके परिणामस्वरूप ज्यादा संख्या में लड़कियां स्कूल आ रही हैं, जो पहले बीच में ही पढ़ाई छोड़ देती थीं. इस कार्यक्रम में 120 छात्रों को सम्मानित किया गया.

यह कार्य सुलभ स्कूल सैनिटेशन क्लब का हिस्सा है, जिसमें 200 से ज्यादा स्कूलों के 6,500 छात्र सदस्य हैं. इस क्लब का मकसद छात्रों में स्वच्छता की आदत विकसित करना है.(इनपुट आईएएनएस से)

Poor sanitation keeps away many tourists from India: Javadekar

New Delhi, Sep 19 (IANS) India has more to offer to tourists than any other country but many prefer to stay away given the poor sanitation in the country, union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Tuesday.

“We have more places worth visiting than any other country, but Paris alone draws 10 times more tourists than entire India. You know why this is so? Because our tourist spots are not clean,” Javadekar said.

He was addressing a programme organised by Sulabh International to award students for the work done in keeping their schools clean.

The Minister said the same Indian who would not litter the streets of Singapore would not think twice before throwing a banana peel or a chocolate wrapper on the roads here.

Javadekar asked the students to herald “the cult of cleanliness” and said it is their parents who need more education to shed the notion that only certain people should do the work of cleaning.

The Minister praised Bindeshwar Pathak — who started Sulabh, a community toilet service at nominal price — for ushering in a “great revolution” towards sanitation.

“The creation of Sulabh is a historic step. And it has been 50 years since it was started… When it was first conceptualised, people thought who will pay to do this. But Pathakji made it possible by keeping them clean, and inculcating the same habit among others,” he said.

Pathak started Sulabh Shauchalaya service in 1970 from Bihar to cater especially to the poor. It provides bathing and laundry facilities as well.

About 4,50,000 toilets were built in government schools in one year under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Javadekar said, resulting in more girl students coming to the schools instead of dropping out as was the case earlier.

During the event, 120 students were felicitated.

The exercise is part of the Sulabh School Sanitation Club of which 6,500 students from more than 200 schools are members.

The club aims at inculcating a habit of cleanliness among students from an early age.
