After 4 hours of sleep, I am starting my Monday... We finally watched the much talked movie about the least discussed topic.. #padman
It hits close than I would like to blabber about. I used to never remember my dates for initially 4-5 years and god forbid if mummy asked about it, I would run away to papa on some or other pretext. And she would nt breach the topic there.. I remember squirming everytime the add used to come on TV and looking for may excuse to run away or change the channel. Ironically it was the men in my life who are responsible for taking pad as a normal necessity rather than a #taboo
word. I come from a tiny budding town in Bihar and the women wouldn't step out to shops just for groceries whenever they want or need.. so it was my father and in later years my brother who used to run to store to buy #stayfree
(the common name for #sanitarynapkins
then as it was easily available and definitely a cheaper option. My father would never hesitate to ask me whether I need to buy before checking in hostel while dropping me off or asking which one I wanted and my uncomfortable was written all over my face but I still would answer.. and slowly a day came when I started shopping for #pad
myself and bring back home without a wrapper.
So ladies let's talk about it..tell me about yours' uncomforts. What say🤔
