We created history and wrote the Missing Chapter explaining the biology behind periods. It was read out in our film, through news readers on TV, by citizens on social media. Local artists from 25 states painted the chapter on school walls creating hand-painted native wall-art, for girls living in media-dark areas. Petition to include it in schoolbooks was committed to by key state governments.
