Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak – Sulabh International Social Service Organisation


Dear Atula Imchen,

Please refer to your communication dated July 11, 2014 on CSR Mandate, enclosing the issue in which has been published my interview. It was only natural for me to touch specially upon the theme of sanitation because I have been doing work in this field for more than 40 years now. I feel greatly encouraged that my efforts have borne fruit in the sense that the subject of sanitation, even a discussion of which earlier was a taboo, now occupies at times a central stage of social discourse dealing with health, environment and other subjects which are matters of great concern to us. I feel like redoubling my efforts in the context of the Prime Minister saying that construction of toilet should have precedence over that of temple. I now propose associating with a number of business houses which have a thrust on sanitation in their activities undertaken under the programme of discharging Corporate Social Responsibility. I am glad to inform you that there has been an awakening towards this and business houses and leaders of industry are now coming forward to implement schemes under the said programme. I am sure CSR Mandate will help us in this.

With highest regards,

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak
