Almost pained to see that CLTS is not mentioned in the recently published book "squatting with dignity : Lessons from India". While lessons from India suggest States which have tried out CLTS are on top and the conventional activity based interventions are not even a match . The official figures are a testimony to it.
The book could have done well giving CLTS its due credit and also discussing about the bottlenecks it faced to create many a open defecation free villages in India .
But again why to expect more in an environment which is managed by people believing more on construction of IHHL,subsidy and coverage.
