Mensturation cycle is not a communicable disease.. yes it is not so why some people treat girl in their periods like a person having some communicable disease
Mensturation is just a very normal thing but because it becomes a stigma
People don’want to talk about it..and its not only in rural areas but it is more prevelant in urban areas too.i saw many educated girls who lives like untouchable for those 5 days and this is not a scene of rural area but a well educated Family. In those days she cant enter into kitchen,take food,can’t touch pickle and even in some families her utensils are also seperated although she can’t touch any man during her normal monthly cycle whether that man is her brother.
And the sad part is that no one is raising her voice against this discrimination.
So i started my research to find the reason behind this discrimination and what i found was so misinterpret and illogical.
Most of the girls and their families believes that this is the tradition set by aur ancestors and if we do not follow they will get angry or you can say fear of god.
Really is it true??? I was confused so i take my research a little deeper
Yes it is true …this is a tradition set by our ancestors but did we thought why they set all this ??
The logic behind all this was really not to disgard the women’s dignity but the real thought was to give some rest to her from all type of work so that she could took care of herself because that time women did really very hard work and was the sole person who had responsibilities of whole familiy( n that time families were not so nuclear) so some good old man tried to do help out women by setting these laws but our modern society mould those tradition as their comfort as usual and misinterpret it..
