Peddaga awareness leni oorlu ane kadu….pedda chadvulu chadvukuni pedda pedda udyogalu chese cities lo janalu kuda em takuva leru. Recent ga oka artist design chesina oka poster valla ee topic malli discussion loki vachindi. Let’s get into the details

Firstly what is a taboo

Menstruating DurgaTaboo ni simple ga cheppali ante….oka aacharam ni kani….oka culture ni kaani…oka social practice ni kani..adi tappu ani bhavinchadam….nishedinchadam(ante prohibit cheyadam) anamata. Ante society oka instance or culture ni oka pedda tappu laga no lekapothe correct kani vishayam laagano bhaviste…we call it a taboo. For example take pre-marital sex. Mana society drushtilo pelliki mundu sex anedi chala tappu. Infact dinini chala mandi opkoru kuda. So pre-marital sex is a taboo in India ani chepochu.

Menstruating Durga
Ipudu female body every month oka ovum release chestundi. Okavela ee ovum fertilize aithe develope ayyi baby avtundi. Lekapothe female body aa unfertilized ovum ni bayataki pampestundi. Dinine menstruation antaru. Oka female body lo idi oka biological process. Ante this is how a female body is designed to be. This is how it functions….this is its nature. Srushti Dharmam anattu. Mana kharma enti ante….ee natural process ni kuda manam oka taboo laga chustunam.

Kondaru aithe aa 5 days ammaini inti lopalki ranivvaru…..kanisam aa ammaini touch kuda cheyaru…..edo antarani valani(Untouchables) chusinattuga chustaru.

First know the scientific reason behind this

Menstruating Durga
Konni 100s of years kinda paristiti tiskondi. Apudu ee sanitary napkins,tampons etc etc lantivi levu. Oka ammai ki periods vaste….blood flow ni peelchkovadanki batta(cloth) use chesevaru. Entha cloth use chesina….adi poortiga peelchukodu. Pakka leakage untundi. As a result aa blood flow anedi bayataki expose ayyedi. And moreover aa blood lo female body fluids kuda kalvadam valla…..daniki eegalu lanti purugule kaaka konni rakala bacteria kuda attract avtundi. Dani valla rogalu spread ayye avakasham chala undi. Aithe ee hygiene antha drushtilo petkoni ammailani bayata tiragakunda…aa 5 days intlo kurchomanaru

Why prohibited into temples

Menstruating Durga
Ipudu ante manaki temples anni kuda normal plain surface lo unnai. Kani let’s talk about ancient India. Apudu temples anni kuda vedic culture tho kattevaru. Ante…prati oka temple nirmanam lo oka scientific reason undedi. As per vedic science…ekada aithe bhoomi yokka magnetic shakthi baga ekuvaga untundo…aa places lo temples kattali. Aithe ee magnetic energy anedi…. mountain peaks mida chala ekuvaga untundi. Anduke patha patha gudilu evaina tiskondi….anni kondala midane untai. Mana India lo tropical weather ekuva….ante baaga vediga untundi ikada weather antha kuda. Periods time lo oka ammai ki energy asalu undadu….baga weak ga untundi. So ilaga energy leni time lo…..antha enda lo vedi lo….pedda pedda kondalu ekki devudi darshanam kosam povadam entha daka correct??? Anduke ammailu aa 5 days gudiki rakapoina parvaledu….tappuledu ani decide chesaru. Adi kakunda….India lo temples anevi spiritual paramgane kakunda learning center’s kuda. Temples ni baga clean ga maintain chestaru.So just imagine….oka ammai ila bleeding avtuna time lo….gudi daka vachi…akada ikada kurchoni….raktam marakalu antinchi….vati chuttu eegalu domalu vaalutunte….vache bhaktulaki entha ibbandiga untundi. Ee racha antha avoid cheyadanki apatlo ammailaki…aa 5 days gudiki rakandi amma ani chepparu.

Why prohibited into kitchen

Menstruating Durga
Ipudu ante gas stoves, chimney ila anni unai. Apatlo kattala mida vandevaru. Kitchen antha kuda vedi vediga undedi. Ipudu bayata weather vedi….kitchen lopala vedi vedi….body emo weak ga untundi. Anduke ammailani ibbandi pettadam istam leka…vantintloki rakunda rest tiskomanaru aa 5 days. Adi matrame kakunda….intlo vere ye panulu cheyakunda,body ni asalu strain cheyakunda….periods vachina time lo oka ammaiki vishranthi chala avasaram ani feel ayyi….5 days varaki ye pani lekunda,ammailaki total rest ichela paddatulani design chesaru. Manam aa rest ane uddeshanni ataka ekkinchesi…..edo aadollu ee 5 days antaranivalu anatlu feel aipoi manam chestuna pentaha pentasya pentobhaya…peaks asalu

We made it a taboo

Menstruating Durga
Mana peddavalu…. scientific ga alochinchi cheppina danini mana sagam telvi tho sagam sagam artam cheskoni…unnavi lenivi uhinchkoni mothanki idi edo pedda mahapapam anattu portray chestunam. Ok gudiki vellakunda undatam opkuntam…endukante avi baga clean places….and akada yantralu avi ivi ani baga untai…ok fine agreed. But maree kitchen loki velodhu…bed use cheyodhu,antarani vala laga oka moola kurchopettadam,battalu mutkovadhu anadam…what nuisance is this. Apudu ante sanitary pads levu….sarigga hygiene ledu. But ipudu koncham better kada paristiti. Ayina kuda ee prohibitions enti maku

Menstruating Durga
Aniket Mitra ane oka graphic designer sanitary napkin tho oka poster create chesadu. Napkin chuttu oka halo laga vesi….dani mida oka red colour lotus vesadu. So dini dwara…”Womanhood ki symbolic ga manam Navaratri cheskuntam…atlantidi periods vachina adavallani matram Pooja lo participate cheyanivvam” ani convey chesdam ankunadu. Idi ipudu twitter lo baga discussion ki daari tisindi. Eeyana Hinduism ki against ga mataldtunadu ani “Anti-national” ani tidtunaru.
