Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely absence of disease, as defined by WHO. A surprising fact is that Right to Health is not subsumed in our Fundamental Rights. The responsibility is passed on to State, Panchayat and Municipality. Miracles happen but the fact is someone, somewhere actually works for it. A major role is played by NGOs, Help Groups, Philanthropists and CSR. Even better for the developing and rather evolving country is when every segment involves for the betterment.

From the time of worries of spoiling the youth with cigarette swag, bollywood has come a long way to make peace with society upliftment. It may not get a U certificate or be able to sell for crores but Phullu, is surely a significant step towards a liveable country.

Written by Shaheen Iqbal, Anmol Kapoor, Phullu was released with an intent of providing sanitary napkins in each and every region at affordable price.
No matter what the taxes on sanitary pads imply but using sanitary pad is a need, just like using paracetamol.
