The Word Bank statistics reveal that 53% of Indian households defecates in the open. An Indian woman who demanded a toilet instead of jewelery from her father at her wedding will be awarded Rs.10 lakh by Sulabh International, which works for the improvement of sanitation scenario in India.

After she got married, Chaitali Galakhe, a resident of Maharashtra's Akola district, came to know that there was no toilet facility at her in-laws' home. Inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Clean India Campaign', Galakhe took up the issue with her parents. The girl told her father that basic sanitation needs were much more important to her.
