It’s a identified reality that there’s a lot of stigmas hooked up to menstruation in Indian society. Recalling why she grew to become a feminist, Shradha Srinath mentioned it was the feedback made by a girl when she acquired her first interval.
“I was 14. At a family pooje, I got my period. I was not accompanied by my mom, so I nudged my aunt sitting next to me and worriedly informed her of it (because I was not carrying a sanitary pad). Another good natured lady sitting close, saw me worried and overheard me and said to me, smiling reassuringly, “Parvagilla chinna, devaru kshamistaare/ don’t worry child, God will forgive you” (for being a part of the Pooja whereas menstruating). That’s the day I grew to become a feminist and a non believer. I used to be 14,” she posted on her Instagram.
