We had to look for new options during phase 2 of constructions as Shital Cera stopped manufactu re of these toilets bowls.
Trial runs with different materials were made. The conceptual shift was exploring the circular shape rather than the Oval shape that is standard in ceramic designs. This then allows different kinds of materials to be tested. A circular shape will enable easier manufacture and improvisation.
Deveral designs have been installed in dormitories, guesthouses, senior dorms and admin & library block at Pathashaala. These are being used satisfactorily not only by over 100 students and 20 staff members, but by visitors and parents during their visit to Pathashaala. We will be happy to share the details with interested institutions and organisations. We request that if this design is replicated it carry the label BASED ON DESIGN OF Pathashaala, Palar Centre for Learning, KFI, India.
