Menstrual cycle is a very normal, biological process which is considered to be a social stigma. Due to this, Menstrual Hygiene is never discussed openly. We cannot afford to stigmatize this issue any more since this will put the women and thus our society at risk. Hence it is of paramount importance to bring the issue to the forefront in discussion. I’m really glad that Ms. Snehal and her Kshitij Foundation has brought this issue into public discussion. Her team is doing a great job of spreading awareness about Menstrual Hygiene. She has also been actively working with Zilla Parishad Sangli for Menstrual Hygiene awareness campaign. I wish her all the best and hope that she succeeds in this noble endeavor.
