Born and raised as part of urbanised India, fortunately I did not have to suffer or face the challenges which millions of women in India do daily basis even today. A major challenge which I would be highlighting here is a  normal biological fact in the human race which due to reasons stemming from myths, beliefs and misunderstandings is considered taboo. For any woman coming of age menstrual cycles are a normal part of development , however the insensitivity is very loud and alarming. Awareness of-course being the most important aspect of improving this situation the socio-economic condition of many households in India also attributes to the negative aspect and minorities an important and necessary part of every woman’s life. 
In my internship with “ Hamari Pehchan” as a conscious and poverished Indian woman I would like to provide assistance to women faced with this insensitivity and unnecessary ostracisation. Apart from the unsettling cerebral equation due to gender disparity and within our society and other reasons mentioned above that needs attention the economic factors between rural and urban India is huge and apparent. Sanitation and menstrual health is probably on the lowest priority for most economically challenged homes and sanitary pads which is a basic requirement let alone anything else but basic women health is considered a privilege or an “amenity” that is not required.
I plan to introduce REPAD, which is a company that manufactures reusable sanitary pads at an extremely economical rate that suit all levels of society. As part of my internship I would like to spread awareness about menstrual health, the importance of essentials for women and the fact that sanitary pads are not accessories of the rich but affordable “must have” for all women irrespective of your social or economic standing. Affordability and availability of REPAD is also what I would like to communicate with the assistance of Humari Pehchan.
I may not have the ability to change the thinking of an entire society however do have the intent which is within my capacity to make a positive impact for the betterment of women. To put my intent and plan in action I would like to intern with Hamari Pehchan and make this relationship a successful partnership which would hopefully better the situation and intern make me a proud woman of today who has made a difference. Positively.
