It's been a long journey And no rest Countless maples fallen at a breath, The silence of the road With fireflies at sides Disordered thoughts Brimming the river of quests.
A wanderer in the mist Treading on the unmetalled sides, With pebbles and dirt only to guide. Winds screaming loud; out Their zest, And crashing thunders, strike Lightning in her chest.
She halted for a while And looked above With her stretched arms And cramped curves; As a ray of light Weeping out from holes of green blades,packed in bunches spread for a shade.
She packs her heart Even tighter this time A brand new dust ahead her climbs, A long journey served For a better destiny to find And a beauty,one of its kind.

“She was playing in the fields It was five in the eve Sharing chuckles and giggles with her peeps, Suddenly, her eyes see her pants bleed. She wasn’t informed of- About these monthly norms, so Befuddled! She runs, with a A timorous sob, And shows her mother Her imbrued shorts.
Hush Hush, she was told To grab the piece of cloth From a 12 year old, you are now a lady grown! Prepare with adornments For your ceremonial flaunts It’s a monthly deal, your body has owned.
And this ‘Red dot’ shows up Every 28 days like the moon is sought. But with these 5 days, Many social stigmas are brought, Prejudices and discrimination heavies her bloat. Towels torn to be used for repititive clots. Unaware about the hygiene Her life is though put, on a Risky shot.
Infrastructure, sanitary supplies, Medications are needed a lot, Be aware not hide, cause Periods are not a shame Or a taboo to be thought!”
I am a little late in posting this but, Better late than Never. I think almost every woman who reads my post here, is privileged enough to get the necessary supplies for her menstrual hygiene but I believe she must be certainly connected to women( like helpers, cooks, maids, any friend, acquaintance,e.t.c) who don’t have much access/ awareness about the importance of menstrual hygiene. And I too participate in spreading information about this, which is crucial in this time of adversity. Doing my duty as a Netizen, for those who are deprived of their Fundamental Rights.
‘Periods in pandemics’ The pandemic has adversely affected millions of women and girls from economically disadvantaged sections of the society who are finding it difficult to manage their periods safely, hygienically and with dignity.
The UNICEF-launched a week-long campaign #RedDotChallenge for ensuring all girls manage their periods safely.
The campaign was launched ahead of the Menstrual Hygiene Day — to recognise the importance of menstrual health and hygiene issues and bring to attention the difficulties faced by adolescent girls, further exacerbated amidst the crisis.
The theme for this year’s MHD was ‘Periods in pandemics’.
The Menstrual Hygiene Day is an annual event which was initiated in the year 2014 by the German based NGO WASH United which aims to benefit women and girl worldwide through their awareness programme. May 28 was selected as the day to acknowledge that 28 days is the average length of the menstrual cycle.
India is also participating in the campaign through social media, many celebrities including the former Miss World Manushi Chhillar have come up with their posts of awareness.
Indian Railways took the initiative to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene among women passengers on Shramik trains.
Assam Branch of Indian Tea Association (ABITA)-UNICEF celebrated Menstrual Hygiene Day in various tea gardens (ABITA) with the sole objective of creating awareness among the tea garden community on ‘Menstrual Hygiene Management’.
If you wish you may share this post and spread the word, if you have suggestions, do comment below and please I request to talk to women or girls who work under you about their conditions. May be you can help them in some way. Thank you.
Thanks for reading.
Ps: I forgot to mention out something, yes I know Men might hesitate to share these talks straightaway with women, thinking they might offended or something. I can still help you in participating, so this month, when you give your helpers(male) or your employees a salary, do gift them a packet of sanitary napkin with piece of advice to protect their wives’ or loved one’s health.
“Numb, broken into pieces Left in the cold, relinquished. A Cologne with footsteps advanced and held her up, With a Warm Hug, she came; To fix the shatters.”
No one can replace the place of a woman who supports another woman in need. Certainly, she comes to her full potential when she gets support from her men in life be it her father, brother, husband or friend but most importantly she needs support of another divine woman too. And this remains a silent key.
I like to embrace different emotions of a woman. I truly believe that a woman can turn the tables, mould the rocks, make or break any empire when she comes to realize herself. I belong to a society where since ancient times way back from Indus valley civilization, women(in hindu mythology as Goddess Shakti) or her yonis are worshipped and yet ironically sometimes my eyes tear out when a few masses of society try to pull her down. Even though it exists in our society I wish to cherish and support her divine forms and euphoric aura.
Certainly, she comes to her full potential when she gets support from her men in life be it her father brother husband friend but most importantly she needs support of another divine woman too. And this remains a silent key. Think about it!
