Mr. Muruga who is also known as India's "Menstruation Man" went through a lot while he was trying to fulfill a noble intention to help his wife and eventually, women in India in dealing with their menstrual hygiene the cheaper way.

His intention to solve a problem that is perennial in his area almost shattered himself, but he was persistent. He was determined to make a statement. He wanted to prove, firstly to his wife (to impress her) and to the people in his land that he is up for something big that will make women's life easier than before. At least, concerning their personal monthly period issues.

Muruga the menstruation man of India

He was even called by his neighbors a pervert but that did not stop him from going further.

Kudos to this video that we found on Facebook a few months ago! At the outset, it has the following line:
300 million Indian women can't afford safe menstrual hygiene products.
At least 1 in 5 Indian girls drop out of school due to menstruation.
Then here comes Muruga. He decided to make his own cheaper sanitary pads.

The start of his journey was rough. He was laughed at. He was ridiculed. But because of his iron determination, he reached the beautiful place where he is living the good life at the moment -- united with his wife.

Watch the video documentary below and learn from Muruga's roller coaster kind of struggle.

Why Scientists Are Worried After The Release of Movie 'Finding Dory'

Scientists are kind of worried after the release of the movie "Finding Dory" by Walt Disney Pictures, stating it may lead to a demand for blue tangs as pets.

Finding Dory is a 3D computer-animated comedy adventure film that was produced by Pixar Animation Studios. It was both written and directed by Andrew Stanton.

Dory played by Ellen DeGeners is a sequel to the 2003 film "Finding Nemo".

Now scientists are a bit bothered by the kind of excitement that the movie generates; It could possibly increase the demand for blue tangs as pets, whereas they are very difficult to raise in captivity.

The percieved demand could mean that many of the tangs will be taken from their natural habitat; It will threaten their population, the scientists expressed.

Fact is, after the release of the similar movie "Finding Nemo", clownfish sales rose to as much as 40 percent. Sadly, they were being harvested unsustainably.

That was not the first case where animal populations were somewhat influenced by movies.

Dalmatians became popular after the release of "101 Dalmatians".

People's demand for owls as pets increased while "Harry Potter" films are shown.

The same thing happened to turtles. The sales grew after the release of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".

So instead of just finding Dory, might as well help him protect and preserve his population. Save Dory!

Malaysian Busker Was About to Go Home When These Cute Little Kittens Showed up to Listen!

Somewhere in the streets of Pangkor in Malaysia, a Malaysian busker was about to call it a day as not many people came to witness his performance.

Having a difficult night where you expect to take home some decent bucks is surely a disappointment. Most people would rather feel devastated than inspired for the next round of the struggle.

That's what was about to befall the Malaysia busker, but in the most amazing way, the four little cute kittens were able to save him from becoming a victim.

As the street singer was about to pack up, he decided to give it one last try. He sat up and sang one song just for the fun of it; Perhaps, to lighten what he was feeling at that moment.

Surprisingly, the kittens came up and sat in front of him, seemingly feeling the vibes and listen to the singer's one last tune to let go. They appeared like they wanted to cheer the guy up and lighten his feelings.

The video was taken on April 24. It was taken by the singer's friend.
My friend just finished his busking on that night but not many people heard him sing.
He was feeling upset, then he sits and relaxes and sings the song just for fun.
Suddenly, the kittens (three-months-old) come and sit in front of him. 
They were my kittens; it's like [they] know his feeling and give him support.
Watch the video:

What a cute scene, isn't it?

So a note to oneself - act responsibly.
