    • Synopsis
    • Muruganatham is a highshool dropout who was so disturbed by the fact that his wife uses “rags” to manage her menstruation because they cannot afford sanitary pads, that he invented low-cost Sanitary Pad manufacturing machines and has initiated a Sanitary Pad Revolution in India, where the penetration of Sanitary Pads is only 7%.
      His contribution has been recognized by organizations globally as Best innovation for the betterment of the society and has won accolades across the cross-sections.
      But what makes this tale really interesting is the amazingly funny incidences of how he fought the Taboo around Menstruation in our society.
      This hilarious tale is inspired from the real life of Murugananthan, “The first Man to wear a Sanitary Napkin”.
