Perry Watson - Podcast 4: Field Perspectives on Open Defecation and a Poem

Post type: 
Blog post

In this third podcast, I share a few explanatory reasons for the continued practice of open defecation in rural India. I approach my understanding of the issue from a behavioral perspective, as I find it more relevant to the field work I have undertaken. These perspectives are adapted from a previous document that I wrote for Participatory Research in Asia. In addition, I have added some field-based anecdotes to enhance the discussion.

In the second part of the podcast, I share quite a profound poem that a friend shared with me here in Raipur recently - "Die Slowly" by Pablo Neruda. As fate would have it, the poem was given to me right as I was about to create this podcast. 

Cheers everyone!
