Majority of the girls suffer from unbearable pain during our period days. I have seen many girls fainting, vomiting and not being able to sit in their classrooms or in offices. I personally had many bad experiences, my school principal once asked me in front of many other male teachers when I went to him for a half day leave as I was dying with pain "tumhe fir period aa gya kya, tumhara to har bar ka natak hai" , I was left embarrassed and devastated by his statement. And now as an employee I am bound to suffer it again. Talking about all women, More than half of women experienced agonising period pain which affected their ability to work, a new survey revealed Many chose not to tell their boss and are 'suffering in silence'.Women are turning to painkillers and hot water bottles instead to relieve their period pains.And nearly a third of us are forced to call in sick. 

So I urge our government to take a note  and do something about this.
