Pad Revolution!

I’m surprised to see everyone talking about sanitary pads. India is witnessing a revolution, I must say.
From NGOs to Celebrities to Common man, everybody wants to speak up for the menstrual hygiene of the women! It was not the case a few days ago.

Words about menstruation or sanitary pads were (are?) often muted or pronounced in “whispers”. It was (or is it still) considered shameful to talk about menstruation in public. I don’t know about other countries but in India, girls didn’t (don’t) have freedom to discuss menstrual hygiene openly.

The least talked about issue is, today, the spiced content of the headlines.

Based on the real life story of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, the film Padman is successful in hitting the right chord.

A school dropout from a poor family in southern India has revolutionised menstrual health for rural women in developing countries by inventing a simple machine they can use to make cheap sanitary pads.

The scenario has changed since the release of Padman. Girls and Women are happy to see celebrities talking about pads openly in an effort to break the taboo.

The family movie, no doubt has been successful in delivering the message. Taboo is slowly turning into acceptable norm.

When Youth icons are involved in bringing about a revolutionary change, the day is not very far.

A change for the better is in the process.

As the protagonist of Padman says,”Woman strong, mother strong, sister strong, then country strong!:)
