Mithila Palkar talk about menstrual health, fashion, fitness, and more

Mithila Palkar says “A significant change can only be driven if we collectively work towards breaking taboos by educating people around menstruation and encourage women to embrace their menstruating bodies and own their red spot in all its messy glory”
Mithila Palkar is a versatile artist best known for portraying Kavya Kulkarni in the heartwarming romantic comedy series Little Things. But she’s also a singer, a fashion and fitness enthusiast, and a passionate proponent of safe and sustainable menstrual health practices (remember her Marathi rendition of Anna Kendrick’s “Cup Song”?). As a result, she recently resorted to social media to tell her tale about getting her first period and how she handled it.
Chopsticks actor Alia Bhatt addressed why she is outspoken about menstruation health, how Alia Bhatt impacts her style choices, how she keeps her characteristic curly hair, and exercise practises in an exclusive conversation with Indianexpress.com. Excerpts that have been edited.
If I had to choose someone from the entertainment industry, I’d choose Alia Bhatt. I admire her relaxed, no-fuss fashion sense.
I prefer clothes that are both comfortable and fashionable. A pair of well-fitted jeans and a basic white t-shirt, in my opinion, makes for a simple yet quite versatile combo. Depending on the occasion and mood, they can be worn up or down.
I like to unwind and de-stress by swinging and listening to music.
I believe that what you eat shapes who you are. On most days, I try to eat sensibly and supplement with the vitamins necessary for healthy hair. Oiling my hair every other day is the secret to keeping my curly locks healthy. Furthermore, I follow a strict sulphate and paraben-free curly hair wash routine..
Our school conducted a lot of period education seminars while I was in eighth grade. My first period lecture was given by my older sister. Yes, I was aware of menstruation and the hormonal changes that a female experiences when she first gets her period since we had an open talk about it. When I first got my period, though, it was a very other experience; I was taken aback!
While certain firms and brands are promoting the importance of menstrual health and feminine hygiene, India has a long way to go before seeing significant change. Menstrual health is especially neglected in rural areas, which make up most of our country.
Yes, I would strongly suggest menstruation cups and sustainable pads since they are both financially effective and environmentally friendly. Carmesi’s reusable menstruation cups are my preferred substitute for disposable pads. Because it can be reused and lasts a long time, it doesn’t waste as much as traditional period products that have to be thrown away.
Anti-menstrual discrimination still exists among a significant percentage of our community. They are hesitant to discuss anything related to menstruation in public. Rules barring access to the kitchen or sacred areas during menstruation are still in place today. Only by working together to break these taboos by teaching others about menstruation and encouraging women to accept their monthly bodies and own their red spots in all their messy glory can significant change occur.
When I get period pains, I like to perform gentle stretches and keep hydrated. I do take time off to enable my body to fully rest.
Menstrual health is really important. It is our job to take care of our bodies, especially during periods, and to follow a good sanitary routine. It’s also important to remember that periods are simply that: periods. They do not produce unclean or filthy individuals. As a result, I would advise every young menstruator to proudly wear their red spot. Your body is quite powerful. Accept the situation.
