She is being trolled very uncouthly. I wish the trollers had a level head on their shoulders. And some decency in discourse.
I agree with the BJP leader here.
- Women have traditionally used cloth peices cut from old sarees, and washed, sun dried, and reused them. One old saree will do for the reproductive life of a women.
- I shifted to the same completely when I was 25. I have travelled a lot, and lived through droughts in my village. The choice has been very comfortable
- A corporate media, and an upper class sold to disposables, have turned the argument into one of 'hygiene' and 'comfort' of sanitary napkins. Both these are very available in cloth.
- The village school girls are now all shifting to sanitary napkins as they are being wooed in government schools with free pads. One nore consumer item they will be buying all their lives. And creating landfills in the villages.
I would like sanitary napkins (as also all other new fangled non degradable disposanbles like diapers) banned or made unaffordable. My vote is for local no cost alternatives.
