Right now, our approach is to depend on people," says Amol Bhinge, a US-based engineer who has developed #ToiletSeva. This one-stop platform lists government-run and privately owned toilets, allowing users quick access to clean, hygienic, and safe toilets.
Amol began working on this app in 2019 alongside his friend, but unfortunately, due to the pandemic, it took them more than three years to launch this app.

I finally rec'd my Voter Card with my Changed Name and Gender. And with it a guide by Election Commission. Happy to see they want to make it inclusive for #Transgender Community. This is what needs change, though-
1. The half man half woman logo is not acceptable to Trans folx...
It may be better to change it to Capital T (used by Delhi Govt for Toilets) or to Trans Flag or the logo in image.
2. The #Toilets are shown as Binary - Men's & Women's washrooms. It may be good to also show Accessible washrooms for #PwD and All Gender Toilets @drsitu @ECISVEEP
The guide shows this graphic for separate queues suggesting separate queues for Men & Women. What about Trans and Disability community?
Also, it may be good to make graphics intersectional - as a Trans person can also be disabled. Also, showing election officers from community

@RNTata2000 @tatatrusts That’s great! Sir, could you also look into toilets and open peeing by men runners in .@TataMumMarathon . Last year you promised me that you will take care of it. But, it again happened this year #tatamumbaimarathon. This is a serious issue that needs your personal attention.
@RNTata2000 @tatatrusts @TataMumMarathon Possible solution:1. Acknowledge publicly that you don’t want runners to pee openly at the start line or in the holding area. Inspite of the promise, no effort was made by .@TataMumMarathon .@procamintl to raise any awareness around hygiene and open peeing by men runners.

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.
