Menstruation Man: Neighbors Called Him Pervert, His Wife Left Him But 5 Years After..


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.
