Indo-technologies: Modern Day Padman? - Curious Keeda
Not a long time ago, an Akshay Kumar starrer movie called Padman came out in the theatres. It was widely acclaimed, as it reached out and touched a subject that needs a lot of attention, but is often discarded because of it still being considered a taboo in our country- menstruation and menstrual hygiene. Even more noteworthy is the fact that Padman is based on a real story- the story of a man named Arunachalam Muruganantham who realized how his wife had to care about the society and money more than her hygiene. This man fought the society and went against the acceptable norms, to be able to provide women affordable pads- a hygiene oriented solution for their menstruation cycle. He brought a revolution, to say the least.
