外文标题：Jharkhand girl kills self over lack of toilet at home
DUMKA: A 17-year-old girl killed herself after failing to persuade her parents to build a toilet in their house. Khushboo Kumari, a first year BA student in A N College, Dumka, hanged herself at her Gaushala Road home Friday, embarrassed to have to go out to the fields for daily ablutions.
“Khushboo would insist we build a toilet inside the house. We built a boundary wall instead,” said the teen’s mother Sanjhu Devi, adding, “She’d often go to her grandfather’s home nearby to relieve herself.” The family owns a pucca four-room house with a courtyard but a toilet was never a priority.
Sripati Yadav, Khushboo’s father said he planned to save money for her marriage rather than build a toilet.

Sheer stupidity and sheer nonsense. Media has created such a hype about toilets as if toilets are as necessary as oxygen. Foolish advertisements are making fools of Indians specially girls and family and houses are broken by this toilet stupidity.

Girl’s demand is genuine, but her parents saw priorities in a different way. Lack of education
