Sanitation is a basic requirement for the purpose of improving health and life span of people. In any country sanitation practices are driven by the culture of that country. The element of cleanliness is embedded in Indian culture since forever. It can easily be identified in our culture in the concept of balance of panchtatava i.e, air, water, earth, fire and sky symbolise the bond of sanitation and environment sustainability. Today on one end materialistic life style and societal divide; have paved the path for heaping up of waste on the other end underprivileged class of our country still struggle with problems like open defecation and poor sanitation awareness.
