Book on Periods

Book on Periods

We have published two unique storybooks on ‘all things periods’ in Hindi & Urdu languages. 
HIndi – टिंकी, पिंकी और आम का अचार
Urdu – (बातों बातों में) باتوں باتوں میں 

These books are a fun read; a story of two adolescent girls who amidst their giggles and nonstop blabber, share experiences of school and life. All along, they talk at length about different aspects of growing up & menstruation.

The Urdu book  (बातों बातों में) باتوں باتوں میں is taken up by Indian Army, Srinagar Regiment (Chinar Corps) for mass distribution among young girls in the valley of Kashmir under their ‘Mission Sadbahvna’ project. 

What’s the need of this kind of book?

Periods or महीना is a taboo subject in most households. In spite of being the purest and most natural life-giving process, it is considered ‘dirty & disgusting.

Talking about it openly is considered a “गन्दी बात”.

And so, most young girls usually remain clueless about ‘why it happens, normal vs abnormal, problems and complications related with it, how to deal with difficult situations, what to believe & what not?’

These book will help them understand the finer nuances of menstruation in the simplest way possible.

When we go on the ground to conduct menstrual health and hygiene awareness sessions, especially in low-income populations, government schools, madarsas and especially in rural areas, we have always felt the need of leaving behind some reading material for them to refer to later on.
Urban girls have access to technology and online resources to clear their doubts or get information on this topic. But rural and small town girls lack this resource.
And that’s why we have conceptualized and published this easy to understand, fun read with beautiful illustration.
