Have you ever gone to a pharmacy to buy sanitary napkins and realised that you are being stared at because you are holding a pack of ‘sanitary napkins’? And then the shopkeeper wraps it in a newspaper and gives it to you. Now I really don’t get is the point of wrapping it in a newspaper. The universe knows that there are sanitary napkins in the sheets of newspaper. And it doesn’t end there. The words ‘period’ and ‘sanitary pads’ are like the ‘F’ word. It makes people around you very uncomfortable. Here is another video called #walkofshame on how Indian women hide sanitary napkins so people around don’t know that they are on a period.
In her, Things They Wouldn’t Let Me Say series of videos on YouTube, stand-up comedian and YouTuber, Aditi Mittal, rants about periods and sanitary napkins. Her views and comments will have you in splits. She not only mocks people but also companies selling sanitary pads and their super-weird and unrealistic ad campaigns. The ones where one sanitary pad soaks up all the water from a pool and the ones where girls are super excited and enthusiastic because they realised that periods can’t stop them from running or hopping around. Mahino ke unn din makes no difference to these women in the ads. Our favourite one-liners were ‘Ladies, once in a month, there is science in your chaddi‘ and ‘Why do you have to be Jitender for those five days?’. Tell us what your favourite one-liner was in the comments below and share this post with everyone you know.
