Menstrual hygiene in India has been a crucial subject of discussion. While the society is opening up to free dialogues, even today, in majority places, especially rural-scape, the onset of menstruation is shrouded with several health- related rumours and lead to young girls being dropped out of educational institutions. Through this song which has been curated in collaboration with Whisper, a campaign of positive education towards the cause has opened up. With its catchy tune and easily memorable lyrics, it aims to become an anthem of change in the society by educating everyone around the cause.

Talking about the song, Shreya said, “I am honoured to lend my voice for this song. It's so important to educate about periods so that people are prepared and there is no fear. Our effort is to let young girls know that getting their periods irrespective of their age means that they are healthy. I was so happy to create the song in different languages, so it can truly become the song of the nation,”

The song is so catchy and joyful that it plays in my mind throughout the day, and I can’t resist humming it. It is a great way to tell all boys and girls that – Periods ka matlab healthy hai aap.
