Question comes how does one define a developing nation, is it economic growth? OR per capita income? OR happiness index of citizens? OR increase in education/special skills? or something else?

By the state of it's public toilets! Smile

I think I am missing alot of interesting debates here on DM.

SJB you have very interesting point but I believe it more of related to only "Ladies" public toilets..... otherwise men's room are same around the world ....it is nothing to do with the development  of nation , it is more to do with male specieLOLLOLLOL( ok ok , exceptions are there ...don't kill me guysLOL)

Economics is not my subject and my knowlege is infact near zero in it. so I am writing only what I think about growth . 

Every developed nation need to be a developing nation simultaneously. A process of constant growth in terms of technology and social conditions. Any kind of stagnation throw the country out of the race of development.

I think it is nothing to do with the wealth of a nation , I don't know what they call themselves but I think most  Arab countries are rich , but they are not developed and they are not developing either.

wow, people are equating state of public toilets with the development(I am kinda confused now they are backing off too LOL )

if anything that examples tells you about the faith of a govt in its people

Developed nation=automatic flush toilets=lack of trust of govt towards its people's intelligence to use a flush after usage(and they have to still put up signs please dont flush diapers/hand towels they wont flush
LOL )

Developing nation=manual flush toilets=the govt still has hope in its people

Next example Wink

i think development starts with meeting the three basic needs of people- roti, kapda aur makaan. do we really need fancy toilets when people dont even get enuff to eat? i mean which comes first- food or the need to use the eau de toilette? dont need a biology major to answer that, do we? Tongue Wink LOL

I think there's a difference between "fancy" and "clean" public toilets.

Waisey bhi, the public toilet post was made keeping in mind the fact that basic infrastructure and amneties are not as good in developing countries as they are in developed countries.

Scarcity of water and over population do result in patheticly filthy state of many public amneties like the public toilets or the waiting rooms at railway stations or the railway platforms.

sure. i think they shld chuck other development priorities and get to diverting scarce resources towards building clean toilets, no?Tongue
