Menstruation in india

Menstruation is probably one of the least talked about and ill-understood biological concepts. Despite being a natural physiological function of the female human body, similar to urination or defecation, the menstruation discourse is often shrouded by reticence.
This is because a complicated network of taboos and customs surround it. In India, it is not uncommon to find mothers who find it extremely delicate to broach the subject of puberty and menstruation. Adding to the already existing woes, women in rural India have to battle far more serious concerns such as the absence of toilets and limited options. Women usually go out in the open and have to hold until its dark. This places a huge strain on both their physical as well mental well-being.
