Menstruation

-god gifted but still impure

 

I hope you readers might have understood what I’m talking about.Yes! You got it right.I know that this topic is common these days.Now people don’t get shy to talk about this.And I think there is nothing to get shy about.

After saying all this still there is a thorn that always hurts.When we hear the so called superstitions made by don’t know who?Have you ever thought about it?

Firstly,when I had entered this phase I got to know about so many rules which are even worst than my school rules.I heard my mom telling me not to step in the store room and too in the religious places.Why? Just because  we carry that impure blood?

 And if we enter an area where we are not allowed then one more sin is added to our list only because we are going through menstruation.People only say that this is god gifted.If god himself is pure then how can this gift be  impure?

Just because we are dealing with menstruation cycle dosen’t mean that entering the temple is a sin.I mean who made these rules.I don’t know  whether the god sent a letter to our ancestors or he came on the earth in the form of person and told you about the menstruation rules.

Usually there is so much of dirt in the temple itself. Did anyone notice that?”No,this is a normal dirt, it’s  fine.”If it was god gifted then why did he gifted us something impure.

Now  slowly…. I don’t know why even we have accepted it. This is what I don’t like about us.I just feel sad that without knowing,I am following these rules,not knowing where they come from,who made these ??????????

I think,DOING SOMETHING WITHOUT KNOWING THE REASON IS THE WORST THING YOU DO IN YOUR LIFE.

Modern day society is deeply rooted in victim blaming. We have unfortunately created a broken system where women first scrutinized for their clothes and actions before even receiving the help and support they need.

Advocate for Change

Advocate for Change

Change is the law of life. Nothing is perfect and everything needs evolution, improvements, and change either on a smaller level or a bigger level. Each organization, institution, community, and even the smallest unit, citizens, need changes from time to time. As time passes by, everyone’s perspective of understanding the world keeps evolving, and then they see the flaws and need for changes in this world. Most of them ignore it, but those who get concerned about it and wish to implement the changes are called Changemakers, an unbiased community that seeks the betterment of the society going beyond the barriers of caste, race, region, and religion.

Land of the Beaten and Home of the Self Righteous

Land of the Beaten and Home of the Self Righteous

The generational trauma of my ancestors Still store themselves within my teenage mind. I flinch at sudden movements of a cis white male And begin reciting my eulogy through my head. I did not get the chance to message my mother goodbye.
“Go back to where you came from!” already forgetting That their foundation was built upon the backs of The beated, bruised, and dark skinned.
