Engaging, Enthralling, All Limitations, Let's Outgrow!
The day came.
That, which every mother has to face.
That, when her teenage - daughter comes to her with a mix of emotions - bewildered & slender-ly frightened on facing a new change in her body and her life, as well.
Yes, you got it right!
Her Menarche Day.
Frankly speaking, the mother is also at crossroads and takes times to come at terms - to explain to her to take this change in its own stride...
So Was I.
This circumstance made me rewind the reel - go into flashback...
The same day of my life...
But, thanks to the 'new - gen' environment, the freshness of today's times have 'Sparked A Change' towards a Healthy Womanhood.
In our times, it was so difficult to understand the ABC's of this concept but thanks to the 'not so hush - hush' orientations included in the school curriculum about Anatomy & Physiology Of The Human Body which prepares a child-like mind, body and even the soul to deal sportingly with the Change.
The role of School Counselors in the school system is commendable.
Then, to deal with the situation was also a near - Herculean task in the bygone era.
To employ cloth or cotton was extremely unhygienic.
The girls were forced to stay behind closed doors - at home - in fear of staining and hence were devoid of even accomplishing daily chores with ease.
'Those five days were the harbinger of Bondage' - like caging a free bird.
However, Now Is Better.
The times have changed for the better...
Thanks to a hygienic and dependable option of the like of Stayfree, girls no more worry about 'those' days.
They no more fear staining their image, in society anymore.
Periods Are No More Taboo! Period.

Living upto its name, Stayfree has indeed encouraged women to Stay Free - to let go of all bondage, snide remarks and the 'hush - hush affair' of Puberty as well.
Even Sanitary Napkins Come With Wings, Don't They?
