Abstract

In Where India Goes: Abandoned Toilets, Stunted Development and the Costs of Caste, authors Diane Coffey and Dean Spears propose that Modi's ambitious goal to introduce toilets to 123 million households across India will be thwarted by the failure to lower open defecation, which they argue, is linked to a concern for purity over germs, writes Asif Dowla.
