e are aware that one must have a daily personal hygiene routine and that it is important – but how does that involve, that is a question, One of the quickest and simplest ways to ensure that your family is safe from illness is to practice good hand hygiene. It can keep illnesses and gastroenteritis (these can all be contracted or passed on through poor hand hygiene) at bay. Coming to Kashmir, this personal hygiene routine tells a completely different tale. The kind of societies which thinks to achieve the zenith of literature must bear in mind the very fact that unless and until basic health and hygiene is provided to all citizens the societies can not progress by any degree.
In Kashmir, markets often represent a health hazard because the markets here lack basic services, such as water supply, sanitation, solid waste disposal and drainage. In a sublime valley how come there be a city with such a pathetic drainage system, and faulty drinking water supply. Ideally, markets should have several taps to provide traders and customers with ready access to safe water for drinking and washing. The most pathetic of all things is that there is an abject absence of public lavatories in Srinagar. The government is practically telling its citizens to hold it in as they tread the boulevards of the city. The existing public lavatories cut a sorry figure and are unclean, smell of stale urine and are in such conspicuous places that it is hard to find them in the first place. We hope that the government will take steps and appropriate sanitation facilities should be made available for the number of people who visit the market. It is a basic right of an individual, and the government can not deny the citizen what is due to him. Thousands of people swoop down on Srinagar for shopping purposes. Their favourite place being Lal Chowk and periphery which is notorious for the lack of public lavatories.
