From a perverted Vampire to Hero to the Oscars

Arunachalam Muruganantham's focused quest to create a cheap sanitary napkin went from rags to accolades.

"Muruganantham's single-minded obsession consumed nine years of his life and nearly cost him his marriage — but culminated with the invention of a machine that could manufacture low-cost, high-quality sanitary napkins. He was named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in 2014. In 2016, he won an Indian national award, the Padma Shri, given to civilians for their contributions to society."

And a documentary movie about his quest-----"Period. End of Sentence" (2018)---- has been nominated for an Academy Award.

It's touching what this man did for his wife, and other women as well. But his wife left during his days as the local pervert, yet she returned after he became a success. We'll see how this works out.

Yet another item taken for granted in this part of the world where there can be an entire aisle in one of our super-sized stores devoted to the several hundred feminine hygiene product choices.
This paints a very extreme contrast in the quality of living differences that are not only possible - but very real.
