School Girl in Tamil Nadu commits suicide due to period shamingI saw this news today morning while getting ready for my work. It's a very unfortunate event and there is no point in playing the blame game.
The school girl who committed suicide was scolded by her teacher and the principal which led her to take this drastic step.
A little understanding for the 12-year-old could have saved her life. As even today many of them consider monthly periods as a shame. Girls are kept bound in the home, they are not allowed to be in the presence of God as even today many consider them as unholy during those days.
I hope that in the coming future this will change and they won't have to hide it and consider it as a shame.
