it is not impure

It comes out of my own body,

As pure as I am.

Every month is thus 

a reminder to  Myself 

as a phenomenal being.

A phenomenal woman,

A fertile beauty.

Could fertility ever be impure?

List of Do's and Dont's!!

Hilarious, funny and

rubbish at the same time.

Dear society,

You need to grow up 

And understand...

Understand that bleeding

Is a natural process 

A nature to which 

All the phenomenal women

are Entitled with! 

You need to understand,

It is no more time to bear taboos 

Over the pain that 

almost crushes us every month


that hot water bag 

over my tummy

From hours and hours is 

The reason behind 

Red hues that of a sun set

below my  Belly button.

Don't teach my poor body  T

o be ashamed of its functioning

Teach me if you can 

To be proud of it

For it  Breeds life,


We, the phenomenal 

women beings

Teach and bring

to  rest of the world 



Dear Rakhsinda, such beautiful words, lovely tribute to the women of the world. You have expressed such a taboo subject so eloquently. Keep writing and sharing. 

With best wishes,

Nusrat Ara 


Oh my dearest, thanks so much for these beautiful words for us, I love it. I just love it.
