“Why do you say that urinating in open and public place is a problem? I can understand defecation in open creates health problem but urine is primarily water and urea as we know and it dries and seeps in the ground. So why not?”
Many of us have these similar questions in our mind and the answer to such argument is simple. In urban, rural or any other scenario, the volume of need to urinate is very large. Because of social pressures and security reasons, women embrace to hold on till they get a private place to use but, men, due to the anatomical advantage, does not refrain. Once you start urinating in a place, it becomes a place designated to urinate. The urine streaks keep on flowing around till they dry.
Some common observations :
- It’s not a pleasant site for the people passing by to see someone urinating in the open.
- The urine mixes with dirt and dust to form a muddy place and starts spreading around creating a marshy island.
- The area becomes breeding ground for bacteria and flies.
- You walk over to use the same places and toil your shoe soles with the dirt to bring it in to your vehicle, homes and offices.
- The urine flowing on the wall and ground does not have a definite path to flow so it spreads across anywhere it can flow.
