This Menstrual shame is something that we need to get rid of!!!
 
The major problem of a woman living in rural areas is that they even don’t get sanitary pads wrapped in bags. They have to use old rags, sand, dried leaves, or any other thing to cover their menstrual cycle.

Arunachalam Muruganantham, the actual or real-life Pad Man has come up with a machine that can make low-cost sanitary pads. Many companies offered him fat cheques to get the patent rights of the machine, but he rejected all offers and strictly said that he has invented this machine to help needy and would like to work with Self Help groups to take the low-cost sanitary pads to every corner of the country.
