Chaitali D Galakhe, the girl who demanded a toilet instead of jewelry as a wedding gift from her father, will be rewarded with Rs 10 lakh.
When Galakhe’s marriage was fixed, she was taken aback when she realized that her in-laws lack toilet facilities.
IANS reported her as stating, “At the time of finalizing the marriage, I had no idea, but later I found that my in-laws home had no toilet. I discussed the issue with my parents and sisters in detail.”
“I am not interested in a television, refrigerator or a washing machine or gold jewelry as a wedding gift. I only want a ready-made toilet which I can carry to my in-laws home,” she told her parents.
Therefore, Galakhe’s father decided to gift his daughter a prefabricated toilet with a water closet, a wash-basin and mirror standing around one foot above the ground as the wedding gift.
As per the report, Sulabh International, an organization that promotes environments sanitation, was impressed by her initiative and decided to present her with Rs. 10 lakh as a reward.

Having a toilet that doesn’t work is frustrating. But having a toilet that doesn’t work when guests come over is a nuisance and embarrassing. Don’t worry: Keeping your toilet running when you have company doesn’t have to be complicated. Discover the following four tips to keep your toilet running smoothly when you have guests at your home.
Don’t Flush Paper Towels or Feminine Products
The best way to increase the longevity of your toilet is to avoid flushing anything that’s not toilet paper. You may know these important points, but it doesn’t hurt to give your guests a friendly reminder.
If you have paper towels in the bathroom, instruct your guests not to throw the paper towels in the toilet. Paper towels are made from materials that don’t dissolve easily and are more likely to clog your toilet. Instruct your female guests not to dispose their tampons in the toilet. Tampons can cause clogs deep in the pipes.
Keep a Plunger Available
Looking at a plunger in the bathroom may be tacky, but having one visible for your guests will help in the long run. The good news is that the days of the long wooden handled heavy-duty red rubber toilet plunger that used to sit on the floor are gone. Buy a plastic handle force cup plunger with a drip tray. This type is more decorative, and guests can easily access it in case of an emergency.
Learn How to Fix Common Problems
Some of the most common issues with toilets are water trickling into the bowl and tank, the bowl emptying slowly, clogs developing, and leaking seals. Some of these problems are ones you can fix yourself. For example, if you have water trickling into the toilet, the culprit is most likely a bad flapper valve. Simply check the flapper seal and clean it. If it’s worn, replace it. If it’s a clog, and after you’ve tried plunging several times, then you’ll need to call a professional plumber. A professional can help you with any plumbing repair or installation needs.
You can find many do-it-yourself online resources to help you, but address problems immediately. Don’t wait because little problems can become bigger problems that require you to replace your sewer system.
Naturally, the kitchen drain and the toilet drain connect to the same sewer line. However, the kitchen drain also has a disposal unit and a strainer that the food passes through first. The toilet doesn’t have those capabilities.
Care for your sewer system the way you do the rest of your home. Toilets are designed to remove human waste and nothing else. When you have visiting guests, set some toilet rules. Your sewer system will appreciate it.
