SUBJECT: ( An appeal to make an
active and revolutionary
system to help the health of
girls during menstruation.)
I,Chiranjit Saha,a resident of ward no.9 of your town, a student of Msc. in Botany, want to enlighten a burning problem of our area involving women’s health for the brightest solution.
Due to being a student of a regular study course like Msc. under Kalyani University, circumstances have compelled me to make my temporary harbour at Kalyani . But, I can not resist myself from boarding on the train towards my home station , Nabadwip at the weekend; as my responsibility pulls me to come here . I have some beloved students here, with whom I spend a quality time on saturday and sunday to guide them in their studies . As I can give them only two days at weekend, I do not want to see them to miss my coaching . The presence of my boys is really praiseworthy as most of them are more sincere than me to attend my classes . But the absence of my girls frustrates me because in spite of having possibility,such absence leads them to poor results in the examination . I forbid them regularly to do so as I can share only two days of a week with the students of my hometown. But, there is no improvement in the situation .
Yesterday, losing control of my temper, I rebuked a girl fervently for such suicidal offences . She broke into tears and from her weakly arranged words, I came to know the reason behind such devastating malpractice . It is the health problem in time of menstruation which forces them to miss my coaching . Their illness and some social rituals drive them to stay bedridden in those days .Their guardians also pressurize them to do so.
Thus, menstruation has become a huge cause for our girls to drop their school and private tutions for a certain period in a month . I was feeling helpless and no further argument came in my mind against the sisterly students. l discussed the fact with other private tutors of my town and as an active member of the alumni board, I discussed it with the respected principal of our local high school named Gouranga Vidyapith. None denied the matter of low presence of girls during menstruation and everyone is concerned about such regular breaks in study as it is keeping a notable negative impact on their studies .
I, therefore, earnestly request you to take some effective steps mentioned under for the welfare of our beloved sisters and mothers .I will feel myself grateful if my suggestion appears to be relevant to you, supreme lord.
My beggings are as follows : —
Mothers are the pillar of a society . All of us know that charity begins at home and home is maintained by our mothers . So, if we weaken our girls, we will weaken our society . The success-recipe of a student lies in the kitchen of the student’s mother and the girl of today is the mother of tomorrow. Our India is great because our land has some great mothers like Sarada Devi,Bhubaneshwari Devi et al who have given birth to Rabindranath, Vivekananda . Our India is great because we have girls like Mary Kom , Sania Mirza , P.V. Sindhu et al.
Therefore, I cordially believe that for the welfare of our locality and civilization, you will take heartial steps for the menstruous girls .
