I couldn’t resist taking some video, since I knew that we weren’t even supposed to brush our teeth with the public water supply. Here’s what I saw: dirty mop, bucket, guy washing his teeth.
What I didn’t see, until I walked around the scene, was that he was washing his teeth from a faucet that was out of view, not from the bucket. My assumption is that his body was accustomed to the water. We saw people washing in public all over India. Despite the dirt, cleanliness is valued. But oh, what a futile task!
Keeping things clean is a real challenge.
Especially with these ineffectual handmade brooms.
