Disgusting toilets at cricket stadiums
In Mumbai, women's toilets were mostly all locked. When we finally found one open, there were no lights, no water, no trash bin, no toilet paper. Unclean WCs, unimaginable filth. I had to explain to my then 8 year old to not drink any more water until we exited the stadium
In Delhi, we found more "open" toilets. But the pipes connecting the water supply to the flush tanks were missing. No trash cans, no toilet paper. So the floor got soaked and WCs remained dirty. Stinking mess. Again, rule#1 for women came into effect - no drinking water out
It is our right to have access to clean, hygienic, safe washrooms everywhere. Please do not tell us to stay home, watch the game on TV, be thankful for what we have, "man up"/ hold it in. It is nothing short of shameful that women spectators are subjected to these conditions.
With India set to co-host the men's world cup later in 2023 will BCCI take up the challenge of changing your mindset before then? Construct functional toilets and hire agencies to manage them. It can be done right. I hope you will take this suggestion seriously. Thank you more
