We Bleed and it’s Normal!…

After all the struggle and convincing, finally the love birds Emily and Jack got married. Everything was happening as they planned, so both of them were very happy. The wedding ceremony took place with full of joy. There is a ritual that newlywed along with family visit temple next day of marriage. But as they reached there, she was asked to stay outside. But why? Because she was on her periods. They struggled very hard to make this marriage happen so she wanted to enjoy every single moment of her marriage. But Alas! She was asked to stay outside. She felt very much sad and frustrated as everybody went inside and here she was alone. The saddest thing was she couldn’t even speak up against it as it would be going against the holy ritual.
Our society considers women on periods as impure. Though it is a natural process, we took it to our emotional levels. If you go and read some articles regarding women anatomy, you’ll get to know that periods are a simple natural and routine phenomenon which has nothing to do with our culture or our beliefs. Even today, women in the village are made to use clothes instead of a pad during her cycle, though it can lead to dangerous diseases. The thing is not a single holy book demand of it we do as a society. A few days back, I saw a post on the media platform where the goddess was leaving the temple and devotees were asking the reason running behind. The goddess replied, “Women on periods are not allowed in the temple”. This post left me totally struck. We live in a culture where women are treated like a goddess and it’s the same society where women have to face such unreasonable restrictions. No men ever have any such restriction. A killer, lier, rapist anybody can get in the temple but not the women on periods. They already bear so much physical pain during the periods but these unreasonable restrictions make them emotionally weak. If the purity of a person is based on a naturally based physical phenomenon, then I believe no one in the world is pure!…
