Indian actress Navya Naveli Nanda spoke up about menses at a recent event in the presence of her nana Amitabh Bachchan.

The entrepreneur said she grew up in a home where she felt comfortable in having such conversations which are taboo otherwise.

Bachchan agrees with her and noted he considers menstruation a sign of recreation.

At the NDTV event, Navya said, "Like he mentioned, it's a sign of life. That's not something that we should be ashamed of, or shy away from. Menstruation has been a taboo for a long time, but there has been progress. I’m sitting on stage today with my grandfather and talking about periods, and that itself is a sign of progress.”

She adds, “The fact that we are sitting on a platform today with many people watching us and having an open conversation about menstruation itself shows that we have progressed, not just as women but as a country."

"It’s great that not just the women, but the men have also joined in this mission of making menstruation a destigmatize conversation. More importantly, at home, because change always begins at home.”

“Women should feel comfortable and safe about their own bodies in their own homes before going out in society and talking about that. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a home where I felt comfortable having these conversations,” concludes Navya.
