With MyAvni, Sujata Pawar has launched India’s first ever period helpine along with her affordable & eco friendly sanitary products!
With people understanding the importance of going eco-friendly, MyAvni was launched to help women switch to eco-friendly sanitary products. Along with this MyAvni also launched India’s first ever period helpline to assist women who want to switch to these products and understand menstrual hygeine better.
The sanitary products on the website are all sanitation-worker friendly and environment friendly. The disposal bags are made with recycled paper and have a red dot on them signifying that it has menstrual waste and is not to be opened.
Our product Avni SafePad is a cloth pad made in the India livelihood project, where products are made by the local women. Meanwhile, the Go Green Period Combo helps women transition easier and offers two products they can use at their own convenience.
In fact, we also run a #2OutOf5Days challenge where women are supposed to try cloth pads for two of the five days. This helps them become comfortable with the cloth pads, thus reducing sanitary waste.
You can find them on their website right here.
As a child, I was taught that Avni means the earth and at MyAvni, we use it as a symbol for female personification of the earth and the mother of all life.
It started as a way for anyone to be able to be comfortably make the transition to a more sustainable, low waste lifestyle. At MyAvni, we aim to bring eco-friendly alternatives for everyday use items in hope to reduce the tremendous waste we end up creating.
In fact, we also have a vending machine installation outreach program in schools in some rural areas!
All of the products at MyAvni are packaged and shipped in 100 percent plastic-free wrapping. None of our products will let harmful chemicals touch your skin. Other than our cloth pads, we also have eco-friendly disposable pads and menstrual cups that are budget friendly too. You end up doing your part to save the environment while saving money too!

Bollywood (and the Indian society, at large) needs to understand that women's sexuality is real, and lesbians don’t just hold hands and hug each other. They have sex too.
First, I have a few questions.
When does Gayatri (Rani Mukerji) find out that her husband is gay in Bombay Talkies (2013)? When her gay male colleague tells her that her husband kissed him.
It’s sickening to watch habitual offenders like Sajid Khan crying on national television for being out of work for 4 years. Really, now Sajid’s playing the victim card?
Big Boss 16’s notorious host, Salman Khan and the Colors Channel has welcomed with open arms filmmaker and comedian Sajid Khan, who’s accused of sexual abuse by not one, two or three, but nine women to date, on the show.
Make no mistake, Sajid Khan’s participation is the digital equivalent of flashing his dick to the world, especially to his victims.
Saloni Chopra, film journalist, recalls her horrific hiring interview with Sajid, and much more, in this piece. Here’s a sample of completely unrelated questions that Sajid asked her.
