New York observes April 14 as Bindeshwar Pathak Day

Sat, Apr 16, 2016, 03:29 PM
New York had declared April 14 this year as Bindeshwar Pathak Day, after the founder of Sulabh International. The citation praised Pathak for improving the lives of people engaged in `the most dehumanising situation.'

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio honoured Pathak for his outstanding wrok to iomprove health and hygiene.

de Blasio said: `Pathak has been example of someone who saw a great injustice, saw something that to many people was impractical and permanent. He had the creativity, energy, drive and hope to make the change.'

He was speaking at a function organised for the occasion, where Pathak, 73, was present.

Bindeshwar Pathak Day, April 14, 2016, honours Pathak for being a `pioneer' in advocating for human rights in India by campaigning for social reforms and developing innovative and environmentally sound sanitation technologies.
