An App to rate the loos and the toilets in Singapore, I wish we could have one for our cities.

An App to rate the loos and the toilets in Singapore, I wish we could have one for our cities.

Defacing in public and very bad, smelly loos are a characteristic of any Indian city.  If you have to take a pee in a hurry, you have no option but to empty your bladder in the public or if you are lucky to find a Sulabh Sauchalaya, empty it there.  But entering a Sulabh or any other public lavatory, especially the railways ones are a test to your nose and eyes.  The stench of a public lavatory in Mumbai will make you feel you are in hell.  

Is there a way to correct this mess?  Apparently there is, the every so hygenic, Singapore seems to have come up with a great idea to get rid of unhygenic toilets.  How? well rate them, the poorer the rating is the authorities are bound to take action.

Loo Connect, a Singaporean tech firm has released this App for Android.  This allows the Singapore citizens to rate the loos in the city there by creating awareness and make life easier for the citizens.  You can always visit a 5 star rated loo, duly certified by Loo Connect for your urgent needs.  Loo Connect which is now available for Android will soon be available for iOS.

The authorities in Singapore are not far behind in this venture.  The Restroom Association of Singapore(RAS) has already tied up with Loo Connect and put its link on the RAS website toilets.org.sg.  

Hope some brilliant Indian comes up with the idea like that to get the Indian loos to be benchmarked.
