Let's put the corpses-in-the-Ganges-River aside for a moment, and talk about Indians using the toilet. Have a look at the three pictures below…

These three toilet photographs represent three levels of toilets in India . Note what is common to all of them, which is that none of them have any toilet paper, but all of them have a bucket of water at arms length… yes, you've guessed correctly, Indians don't use toilet paper when using the toilet, they use their hands. After defecating, you use your left hand finger to wipe the feces around your anus, and then use the water in the bucket to wash your hand. The custom is to use your left hand to wipe your butt, so when you go into a store to select food, you mustn't use your left hand.
JY people believe, this is actually is a good habit. The first benefit is that cases of hemorrhoids are significantly lower; the second is that it can greatly save paper, good for protecting the earth's resources and the development of green initiatives. So just by doing this, it saves a great amount of wood.

I'm not sure if I should bring out this photo…a sick elderly person, lonely standing by the Ganges River . I don't know if he is appreciating the true meaning of life or bemoaning the helplessness of human existence…that helpless expression…that remarkable face carved by the years…is unforgettable…
Don't look if you won't like it…you are responsible for yourself…

The tour guide said that this kind of fish in the Ganges is called "Gulang" fish, a very nice sounding name…and it is said the flavor is very good, but upon thinking of the corpses soaking in the water, the soap from the bathing, the garbage by the river…I don't have the courage to try it, not sure if this kind of fish will have a human flesh flavor…

This needs no introduction as many are able to eat it domestically …but a reminder, never eat an authentic one…because the chef uses his left hand to wipe his shit when using the toilet/restroom.
