Noticed the emboldened??? Feminist and a bit lateral though, the alikeness of thought that we shared is behind what is to be served on the table. Excuse me for the choice of oddity and quirkiness of the topic, but some oddballs are better not left undiscussed.
A hint of shame is taken as a mark of respect for the fair sex. A day not far beyond, hushed words and closed doors carried innumerable unspoken tales of pain and docility. Outcasted by the generic, the womenfolk had to bear mental chores. Suppressed and surpassed, the days scattered awful trepidation in the cozy memories of the maidens and the married. Yes, the menstrual days, till day, linger to be the worst nightmares of a better majority of the womenfolk.
The sensitivity of the topic is unquestionable. The bodily pain, which is a pilot version of the labour cramps perhaps every woman is destined to undergo, leaves the ladies turbulent and transformed for a worse. The hormonal flows sway alongside and cast a darkening glance on the mental status. At times, partners and kin find themselves at a loss, unaware and unalarmed.
So what has left us so helpless that we shirk bringing such a shakingly sensitive topic to the table??Is it the conventional staticity of the problem?? Or the lack of communicational flow ?? Whether it is the deep seated idea of an ungodly format or sheer odiousness of the process?? Unbelievingly, each of these is true.
Ages stand as witness to the fact that Indian conventions have had a rich history, mostly based upon mythological statistics. The Indian pedestal is founded upon Godly grounds. And a certain period ago, the fair sex was worshiped for their strength and perseverance in bringing a new seed to life. Yet, far across the years, a natural phenomenon, which is the core of this saintly process, was started to be looked down upon!!! Not withstanding the truth that the onus of life, the menstrual blood, which is the ‘purest form of impurity’, is what moves into forming a new breath!! If the birth of a child can be celebrated, why should the death of the month be shunned??
Beyond a set mind form, the paucity of communications have played a lion’s share in triggering this oppressive set, which again contributed to this sickening mental health of girls. To consume the pain all by oneself by ignoring the thirst to share is no joke. All of these just because we feel perverted to discuss something as repugnant as this. While the play of hormones are awkwardly digested by some, it becomes a misery for the rest.
As a lady, I feel it unsavory and unappetizing to digest the fact that the world can thinks of norms distasteful on humane grounds. We can treat a process as squalidly as possible because it has been done so. When can we stop being squeamish and treat this seriously harboring disease of inattentiveness for better?? I guess a little thoughtfulness and a trifling dare to break the shackles can work wonders in solving this heavily underrated problem.
