    Friends, this innovation had been installed at one of the camps I had attended in Gadchiroli. I was so damm impressed by its ingenuity. Besides being a very fun – filled way to wash hands, which is bound to attract kids; what attracted me to it is the enormous amount of water which gets saved with this. We were around 100 of us and just 2 cans of water (i guess of 10 litres) would suffice for all of us to was our hands meticulously !!!! We all must try to spread this concept. I pledge to facilitate installation of ‘Nirmal’ at atleast 3 places soon.
    Jai Hind.
