Rajnandgaon (Chhattisgarh), Jun 17 (ANI): Even today, in several Indian communities, menstruating women are considered as impure. Women in Rajnandgaon’s Sitagaon stay in a hut on the outskirts of the village when menstruating as they are not allowed inside homes during this period for fear of god’s wrath. Dr Mithilesh Chaudhary, Chief Medical and Health Officer (CMHO) of Rajnandgaon said, “Officials of Health department and Women & child development visit such villages and try to educate people about diseases and infections caused by these orthodox traditions. We encourage them to use sanitary pads”.
