Chennai is notorious for its lack of civic sense and hygiene. You can see men gleefully relieving themselves in public places all over the city. One often hears a complaint that there are not enough toilets and urinals which public can use.
I was pleasantly surprised to see these cheerfully coloured portable toilets at the Besant nagar beach on a Car Less Sunday. I was not sure whether people were using them, but I did not see anybody relieving himself on the road that day.
Thank God for small mercies!
