We all know how fractured the sex education in India is and how every biology high school teacher dreaded teaching the reproduction chapter because they were all too scared of some giggles which will probably be shared by students when their back is turned to the blackboard. Like all other major lessons in life, sex is relatively a very hushed topic but it is still talked about. Menstruation, on the other hand, is a total mystery which even Sherlock would have struggled with if he was an Indian boy.
I can go on and bring in the negligence of as a subject matter and also bring in some literary feminism in this article but I won't do that for the fear of making it too alien. The boys in India barely know anything about periods and it is the society's fault. A boy who has a sister might be better off in knowing something but a boy who does not have a young girl in the family will be totally alien to the concept and will probably get to know through his girlfriend but this is not an article about how screwed up our society is regarding some things which they still, unfortunately, classify as taboo.
There are so many stereotypes attached to menstruation and the only way to tackle is to spread awareness. It can only be done when everyone joins their hands and minds together to fight ignorance. It may not directly concern a man but you too will probably get married and have to deal with the mystery of menstruation at some point or the other. A little knowledge beforehand never hurt anyone.
