India, this year witnessed a low-key Independence Day celebrations. Amidst Covid-19, the day was observed following all the necessary protocols as people maintaining social distancing and yes, of course, wearing masks.

In today's speech, he discussed an important topic  about women's health and hygiene. He continued that his Government will make low-cost Sanitary pads, making available for the women across the country, so that their health and hygiene won't be neglected. He said "This government has been always concerned about the health of our daughters and sisters. Through 6,000 Janaushadhi centers, about 5 crore women have got sanitary pads at Re 1."

Talking publicly about such a controversial topic makes MR. Narendra Modi the First ever Indian Prime Minister to talk about the health and hygiene of the women, in the history of India.

We respect him for bringing this untouched topic into consideration and taking a big step in minimizing the hardship of a woman during their tough days of the month.
