Text of my ‘When Worlds Collide’ column published in Ceylon Today Sunday newspaper on 25 November 2012
November 19 was World Toilet Day.
It highlights a major development challenge of our times. This international day of action “aims to break the taboo around toilets and draw attention to the global sanitation challenge”.
The numbers are staggering: around the world, some 2.5 billion people don’t have access to a clean, private toilet.
