“Now you are preventing yourself from sitting with your father, now you are preventing me from going to the aarti, why this mother?” … In response to this “innocent question,” the only thing the mother can say is, “This is The fate of the woman is daughter.” Here is another question about the answer to that question, but it is necessary. After all, what is the fate of women? Has the real position of women changed in the 21st century, when we seek to settle on Mars after the Moon? Even today, does any father sit down with his daughter and talk about those topics that Orthodox society has been considering taboo?

In this, religion has remained at the center, but the evils and superstitions of society have also been attacked.

How did the idea of ​​making this film come about? In response to this question, director and writer Santosh Upadhyay says, “It’s a matter of 2014. A girl who was studying in class 8 came to me. She separated from her parents and asked me to speak in private. She told me “Sir, why do girls have periods? To be honest, I had no answer to this question. It was only after that that the idea of ​​making a film on this subject came to my mind.” i wrote her story.Even today in a metropolitan city like Delhi, a 14 year old girl cries for it normal and natural.There is still a superstition regarding menstruation, which is the misfortune of the country.

Let me tell you that there are superstitions about the periods not only in India but all over the world. In our country, during the ages, women or girls cannot enter the kitchen, or touch any food. Going to the temple and worshiping is a long way off. In many places, pickling is not allowed during menstruation. People think pickles rot because of this. In Nepal, women are evicted from their homes when they are menstruating. Even in America, women are considered unclean during this time. In Israel, when a girl has her period for the first time, she is slapped in the cheek. This is done to make the girl look beautiful.
