Kumbh Mela is a mass Hindu Pilgrimage of faith in which Hindus gather to bathe in a sacred river. It is considered to be the largest peaceful gathering in the world where around 100 million (10 crore ) people are expected to visit during the Maha Kumbh Mela.
In such a situation it is really hard for the devotees to find toilets in case of emergency because of which they have to keep asking people around.
A Mumbai-based digital marketing agency has come up with a mobile application which can help pilgrims to locate nearest public toilets in extremely crowded areas at the ongoing Kumbh Mela in Trimbakeshwar and Nashik, which host the mega gathering every 12 years.
The user-friendly app —PeeProvider— developed by Avignyata Inc, will also assist devotees in accessing clean washrooms on busy streets during Kumbh, a release from the marketing agency said today.
Considering that one-crore plus people are expected to attend the religious congregation over next three months, the district administration has taken steps to build public toilets or stationing portable toilets at various places in the two temple towns, both on banks of river Godavari, around 45 kms apart.
The app is available in Android and iOS mobile phones. Once you open the app, it will display the toilets around you. Then click on the menu button to see the list and choose whichever is the closest. After you select the toilet, click on the walk or car icon to see the directions, the release said.
