Sachin Tendulkar said it was hard to digest that many people around the world did not have access to clean toilets.
"I was surprised to know that 36 per cent of the world population don't have access to safe and clean toilets. In today's day and age to think about this basic facility not being available to a common man, it is really difficult to digest," he said
