A step up from the bucket bath. Rather extravagant. A bit cumbersome in Indian bathrooms, where dry and wet areas merge.


At the poolside in a resort.
"Daddy, daddy, I am going to have a shower bath... I can enjoy here. At home we can't take this nice shower bath no?"
An elderly and portly woman rises to chase the little guy out of the shower stall. "Chinna, don't take a shower bath here.The water is not at all hot. You will catch a head-cold...," she bellows.
"Daddee! Tell paatti I can have a shower bath..."
Any wonder that dad is not a fan of family getaways?
