Walls in India are special! Every wall in India is a grandiose canvas embellished with uric art forms that incessantly inspires more and more Indian men to showcase their malodorous creativity. Despite the resistance that the advocates of hygiene and civic sense have taken to this act of grotesqueness, it still reigns as the country's national pastime. True that most Indian men like to address to their nature's call in the open, but what about the ones that actually make and an effort to find a restroom? Do we have enough restrooms in India? Ex Indian Minister Jairam Ramesh's statement that the country needs toilets more than temples might have caused a furor but he had a valid point. Let's take the city I live in for instance. It's not quite that easy for Delhi's 1.82 billion population with just 3981 public toilets at their disposal. Of these, only 391 are for women, the fraction that cannot even afford to rouge the city's walls with their artistic creativity. Even uptown South Delhi houses 67 doleful toilets for women. Beat that! Our new short film has a humorous take on the topic and shows how a perfectly romantic shopping trip could head south if you forget to carry an empty plastic bottle with you.
