Cleaning our Backsides and Toilets Yesterday on TV I was very saddened to see the story of a 13 year old Girl, who could not pay her fees, so was forced by the School authourities to clean the toilets, and she was taunted by her classmates, due to which she committed suicide. The School Principal, she showed no remorse on TV, saying that her mother was employed , or told to , God knows, to clean the toilets, and maybe she told the daughter to do it on her behalf ! And there was not a trace of grief on her face, maybe she does not have a heart, but a stone instead. In this case, the principal should be dismissed immediately. And the students who mocked this girl, should be made to clean the toilets, even if they belong to rich families. And I would put CTV Cameras all around the school, so that these mockings would be there on camera, shown to the parents of the kids who mocked the poor girl, and then the punishment of cleaning the toilets be given to the offenders. This would serve a lesson to the kids in future not to make fun of someone, which drives some kids to end their lives. But for this I blame the parents. They feel cleaning toilets is the work of the Sweepress, or Bhangi, or Harijan or whatever we call them. And that it is shameful to clean our own toilets. I ask u all one thing, and very seriously at that. Don’t we clean our own Bums every morning ? What can be more distasteful than that ? But do we crib about it throughout the day, or dread going to the loo, just bcs we have to clean up our backsides ? I don’t think even the richest of the richest has a servant to clean his backside, is there ? Then why the shame to clean the toilet. How much effort it takes to clean the toilet, I want to know . We have the brush, with which we just put in the Bowl, and on the water, and u have a clean sprinkling toilet. After bath, we take the mop and swipe the water off the bath area floor. And have a small cloth to wipe the taps dry, so that water does not remain and leave traces on the expensive Marc or Jaguar taps and fittings ! All this I swear dear friends I do it everyday in my own bathroom, and it takes hardly 3 minutes or 5 minutes at the most, that is all. That is what I like about Americans and Westerners. They are taught to worship work, I never see the parents stopping their kids from working at petrol punps, or in Mcdonalds, or in sweeping the floor of the showroom they work in, all of them clean their own toilets, cars and what not. This is called dignity of labour, and I wish we stupid middle class, and rich Indians , the sooner we learn it the better for us. And the sooner we teach our kids the value of all this. My wife, harsha , she wants the sweepress, who is playing truant, and now does not want to do the work, she works in many houses, harsha begged her recently to come back, when I tell her, I don’t need the lady, we can do without her. These sweepress, has no sense of the value of our bathroom and our fittings, they screw up by using Vim, and a plastic scrubber which they use on the porcelain, fine, but they use it on the taps, taking off the coating of them, not realizing how expensive it is. My Tuffy and Bingo, they **** in my lawns, now I pay the sweepress to pick that up, I pay her extra too picking it up from the road close to my home for the neighbours object. Now no toilets have been made for dogs, so they will do it in the streets, so sometimes they oblige this neigbour , or the other one, and we have small fights over it off and on.I tell them tell the sweepress I have paid her to pick itup. But when she dosnt come, I tell them I will pick it up, andi do so in front of them, and put it in a small bucket I have kept near the door , the neighbours are surprised, I say to them, tell me and I will pick up my dog’s **** and other stray’s too, where is the shame in it. When I can swipe and clean my ass, this is chickenfeed for me. And I am not ashamed of it. Wish more people teach their kids, that there is nothing wrong, in either cleaning their backsides, which they do anyway, or in cleaning their own bathrooms, or picking up **** from the road close to yr home. And as it is, these sweepress, and others have now government jobs where they earn so well, even they are ashamed to do this, and very soon this problem will get very acute, the sooner we and ourkids learn, the better for all of us. And who knows, many more innocent students lives will be saved, if the kids know the value and love of labour. I blame the parents more than the kids, for they are the miiror image of their parents,who teach them that this work is not fit for u kids !!!!
