Why do most Indians not use toilet paper?
Gopalkrishna Vishwanath, True Indian, who feels at home anywhere in India.
Updated Aug 15
Short Answer: Because we feel it is unclean. We are repelled by it.
And now my usual ramble for those who don’t mind my doing so:
Veg or Non Veg?
Theism or Atheism?
Capitalism or Communism?
Abortion: Sinful or Free choice?

答者背景:
印度人,男,已退休软件工程师,头发花白,有孙女,住在班加罗尔。
简短的回答:因为我们觉得不干净。
我们被卫生纸搞怕了。

那些不介意我这样做的人,通常会漫不经心地问我:
你是素食注意者还是肉食主义者?
你是有神论还是无神论?
你信仰资本主义还是共产主义?
你认为堕胎是有罪还是无罪?

Like the above topics, Dry wiping using toilet paper or washing with water using the left hand is one subject which will divide the East and West with no prospects of a compromise.
In my discussions with Westerners I find that they are as strongly repelled by the Eastern habits as we Easterners are with the Westerner’s habits.
East is east. West is west.
I personally use a hand held water jet spray. Our overhead tank is on the fourteenth floor and I live on the sixth floor. The water pressure does an excellent job.

就像上面这些话题一样,使用卫生纸干擦,还是用左手拿水冲洗,这是东西方文化的分水岭,没有任何妥协的前景。
在与西方人的讨论中,我发现,东方人和西方人互相排斥对方的某些生活习惯。
东方的是东方的,西方的是西方的。
我个人使用的是手持式喷头。
我们的水箱是在14楼,我住在6楼。水压也挺正常的。



I point the spray where I should and the water jet does the job, without my hands having to touch anything.
You get the best of both worlds. You don’t touch your poop and neither do you smear your poop in a thin layer and stay dirty all day long. If there is toilet paper available, I may use it do dab myself dry after washing myself with water or else I just allow the water drops to fall off. A little dampness is no issue. The underwear absorbs it and I come out feeling relieved, fresh, cool and clean down there.
For good measure I also wash my hands with soap, casually, and not in a paranoid way like Lady Macbeth imagined.

我把喷头对准应该对准的地方,高压水柱清洗应该它清洗的地方,我的手不需要去碰。
这样不就两全其美了嘛!
你既不需要去碰你的便便,也不需要把你的便便涂成薄薄的一层、然后一天都脏脏的。
如果有卫生纸,我会在冲洗后用纸擦干,或者我会让水珠自己落下风干。
有点潮湿是没有问题的。内裤可以吸水的,这样我会感到舒缓、清新、凉爽,那儿比较干净。
另外,我也用肥皂洗手,所以啊,不要像麦克白夫人想的那样偏执嘛!

Sorry for deviation in my answer. But I am sure you will get a new perspective, root cause of the habit of not using toilet paper.
1 Why indians never use toilet paper?
2 Why westerners use toilet paper instead of water?
3 Why westerners never use their hand to eat food; why do they use spoons and forks?
4 Why westerners eat bread and meat why not rasam,dal rice?
5 Why westerners use tie and shoes?(of course Indians are also using them right now on the name of uniform)
6 Why muslims wear burka,takiyah,etc.
7 Why Lord Rama is half naked, why he never wear shirt and shoes instead of half naked body and open chappals?
8 Why Jesus is fully covered unlike rama?

先说声对不起,我的答案可能会有点偏题。
但是你看完后会有新的视角,会知道印度人不用卫生纸的根源。

1 为什么印度人从不使用卫生纸?
2 为什么西方人用卫生纸替代水?
3 为什么西方人从不用手吃东西,为什么他们用勺子和叉子?
4 为什么西方人吃面包和肉,而不吃酸辣汤和米饭?
5 为什么西方人打领带和穿鞋子(当然印度人现在也这样)
6 为什么穆斯林穿长袍?
7 为什么罗摩神是上身半裸穿凉鞋,为什么他不穿衬衫和鞋子?
8 为什么耶稣是穿长袍,而不像罗摩神一样半裸?

Malala wearing Hijab

戴着头巾的马拉拉



Osama binladen wearing Takiyah

穿着长袍的本拉登



Jesus and Lord Krishna

耶稣和印度神奎师那



although he is not Rama, you can find difference in their clothing.
The only answer to all these questions is: “Climatic conditions”.
Since western countries are so cold so they don’t and can’t use water for cleaning.
As Indians are in tropical hot region where there is no problem of low temperatures, so does Indians use water comfortably.
Westerners can’t use water for washing hands so they use spoons and forks, same applies for toilet paper usage.(i am not saying Westerners are unhygienic but Westerners use different methods to be hygienic .ofcourse Westerners are more hygiene conscious. we all are humans but with differences.)
Since air is too cool they tie their collar and wear shoes to make themselves warm. I think you got answer for all questions.

虽然他不是罗摩神,但是你在穿着方面还是可以发现不同的。
这些所有问题的唯一答案:气候条件。
由于西方国家太冷,所以不能用水清洗。
印度人在热带,气候炎热,没有低温的问题,所以印度人自然就用水清洗了。
西方人不能用水洗,所以他们用勺子和叉子,这样也适合用卫生纸。
我不是说西方人不卫生,只是西方人的卫生方式和我们不一样。
当然西方人也更有卫生意识。我们都是人,但是难免有分歧。
由于气候太冷,他们打领带、穿鞋子来保暖。我想你应该得到所有问题的答案了。

Same way muslims wear burkas to save themselves from blazing sun, gusty winds which carry sand in middle east.[1] Islam started from Arab countries and they have the deserts over there, so men started keeping beard and women started wearing niqab to protect the face from sand. Later, clerics associated these things with Islam.

同样,穆斯林穿长袍,是为了避免遭受阳光暴晒,也是为了躲避中东地区大风中携带的沙子。
伊斯兰教发源于阿拉伯国家,他们那里都是沙漠。
所以男人们开始蓄胡子、女人们开始戴面纱,防止他们的脸受到沙子的纠缠。
后来,伊斯兰教的神职人员就把这些跟伊斯兰教绑定在一起了。

Problem is that western people who colonised several countries across the world made the natives believe that they are inferior to western and the habits only made them superior .
So natives started to follow western habits and feeling as if they were civilised like them.
How can be one civilised without knowing what to wear according to climatic conditions. In tropical region Indians are wearing shoes and socks which usually stinks.
So, stop believing western habits are modern and eastern habits are uncivilised.
The climate is only factor which decides human habits.

问题在于,西方人在世界各地殖民的时候,想着法子让当地人认为他们不如西方人,这就导致西方的生活习惯让人看起来充满了优越感。
所以当地人开始模仿西方的生活习惯和审美,好像这样就可以和西方人一样文明了。
一个人不根据气候条件来穿衣服,怎么可能文明呢?
在热带,印度人穿的袜子和鞋子,通常会变得很臭。
所以,不要再相信西方的习惯就是现代的、东方的习惯就是不文明的。
气候是人们生活习惯的决定性因素。
我说的这些话,喜欢不?

Ok… I just realised Italians are the exception in west.
It looks like we are the only western population who find it disgusting to use only toilet paper, just like Indians. We absolutely need to wash everything after our affair, with soap and water and hand, even if you just used toilet paper to clean the worst before moving from the toilet bowl to our beloved bidet.

意大利人,男,罗马大学学生,住在罗马。

好吧······我刚意识到意大利人是西方人中的异类。
看起来我们是唯一和印度人一样,觉得只用卫生纸很恶心的西方人。
搞完事情后,我们意大利人先用水冲,然后用肥皂洗手。
即使你刚用卫生纸擦完脏东西,然后再从马桶转移到心爱的坐浴盆,你也要用肥皂洗手。





I think using bidet is the best way to clean your intimate parts and I feel we Italians are much closer to Indians than to any other European countries. Both cultures can't bear to go out of the bathroom without feeling completely clean and washing with water is the only way we get that feeling, be it in a bidet or in a bucket.
That said, there is one thing I can't imagine: when I have my period I need to use bidet for at least three times a day… really can't figure out how you manage it…
Please, ignore any mistakes in my english and feel free to suggest edit.

我认为使用坐浴盆,是清洗你的私密部位最好方式。
在这点上,我们比任何欧洲国家都接近印度人。
这两种文化,都无法容忍感觉没有完全干净就从卫生间里出来,用水冲洗是我们得到这种感觉的唯一方法,无论用的是坐浴盆还是水桶。
有一件事可能是你无法想象的:有一段时间,我一天要使用三次坐浴盆。不知道你能不能搞的定。
请忽略我英语表达中的错误,有错你指出,我再编辑下。
