English term or phrase:the loo break
This is, of course, the loo break. On the face of it there is nothing remarkable here - until you remember that this is rural India where there are few facilities of any kind, let alone toilets. The lack of proper sanitation is one of many obstacles Indian children face in their struggle for an education. Other factors include too few books, teachers who fail to turn up and the requirement for children to work - like their parents - in the fields.
