In an all-too-familiar story, a 2000-member rural community in Padmakesharipur village (Orissa state, India) lacks access to basic sanitation. They are forced to relieve themselves in the open, in ways that are inconvenient, unhygienic and undignified. 

There isn’t a lack of government schemes and grievance redressal mechanisms. Its just that they don’t work. Over the years, the villagers have made several complaints to local politicians and public officials and have been promised proper action each time. But nothing has been done so far.
