Menstruation is considered a taboo in some nations, and some girls are embarrassed to admit about it. When they hit puberty, they leave school as a result of this embarrassment. In India, Arunachalam Muruganantham is a social entrepreneur who helped to revolutionalise cheap sanitary pads. His machine manufactures sanitary pad at a much cheaper rate compared to commercially. This invention has enabled many Indian girls to be able to have proper sanitary pads during their menstruation, and they do not have to resort to unhygienic methods.
