We have mostly two types of commodes in our society. One is called WC and other is called Indian commode (in which you have to sit like wicket keeper sits when bowler is bowling). WC, I do not know why it is called WC, may be it has come from wheel chair, but it does not have wheels, what is it? Let me Google it.

So it stands for Water Closet, Talking about these two kinds, WC which is also known as English commode is mostly found in new era of homes where most youth from middle class families prefer to use it nowadays, (Do I sound like NFP?) though by mistake, if some human being from rural area has to use English commode, he almost find it impossible to understand and hence he sits on it like he does on Indian commode.
I will be quoting Sami shah while complaining that someone keeps following him where ever he goes in public. Whenever he goes to washroom he finds foot prints on Toilet seat of WC. Sami keeps wondering who the hell is he and how the hell is he doing that? If he is sitting like wicket keeper on toilet seat while back to flush tank then how can he balance? If he is sitting face to flush then he can grip the flush tank but how the hell is he the perfect to hit the target?
The one, who frequently uses English commode if by chance, happen to use Indian commode, ends up in a challenge. If you are wearing jeans, I am sure you cannot sit on Indian commode more than five minutes. Your blood circulation stops, you cannot BREATH and if some way you have managed to sit more than five minutes you feel sick, you feel fever, your legs hurt.
In the early days, before partition of Pakistan, the Indian commodes used to be small, but they had huge flush tank and it was hanged at least 10 feet above the commode. So when you had to flush, you pulled a chain like you have in the train for emergency stop. When you pulled the chain, you felt like some earth quake or flood was coming, the water came with a grudge and pressure from the tank.
As the time passed, technology improved, flush tank came were made of plastic, they were good but not for kids. The small kids who were scared of the black hole, they held the flush tank pipe and most of time; flush tank fell over the kids. Those kids when grew up adults, wrote the mark on their knees, heads cause of falling flush tanks as their identification mark in their national ID cards.
Comparing both types of commode, I prefer Indian commode as social friendly than WC although it is more difficult to use. Indian commode has enormous benefits and one of the very important benefit is it contributes in reducing global warming. Most of the public toilets or office toilets are dirty, most of people use tissue paper to clean the toilet seat where WC is present and then they make seat of tissue paper to use it. Paper is made of trees and trees sucks carbon dioxide. There is no extra need of tissue paper if Indian commode is used. People are fond of reading books and singing while sitting on commode, if the commode is Indian where even breathing is difficult; individuals will not read books or sing and will concentrate on the required job, this will save electric energy. Electric energy used in washroom is only wasted for wastage of an individual. So lesser the electricity is used, lesser the fossil fuels are burnt, lesser the global warming is done.
Indian commodes also help you to judge your weight. Many people come to know about their increase in weight when they find difficulty to bend their legs. You use lesser water in Indian commode, so water is saved (Now technology has improved, WC also uses lesser water in flush tanks though). The only defect that I can think of in Indian commode is the lack of brainstorming. When you are sitting in washroom you are completely isolated from the world and come up with new ideas, although on Indian commode, you are too busy to think about anything else. :p
