Those who attended a marriage at Andura village in Balapur tehsil of Akola district in Maharashtra were surprised to see a new item on display, along with other usual household articles which form part of the articles given by parents/relatives of the bride to her during the wedding. Standing tall along with other items was a toilet. The prefabricated toilet with a water closet, a wash-basin and mirror standing around one foot above the ground, was the cynosure of all eyes at the event.

The girl, Chaitali Galakhe got married to Devendra Makode from a village in Yavatmal district. "I came to know that there is no toilet at my in-laws house. I told my father and uncle to provide a toilet. They fulfilled my request," Chaitali said.
