Tamil Nadu girl jumps to death on being scolded for period blood by teacher

Period is still a taboo in our country depiste a number of awareness programs. A woman is expected to be ashamed of her period blood. A similar shameful incident took place in Tamil Nadu when a school teacher scolded a 12-year-old girl for her stained uniform and desk. The repercussion of her ignorant behaviour was that the girl committed suicide by jumping off the terrace. The incident took place in Tamil Nadu’s Palayamkottai. 

The girl who studied in 7th standard of a Senthil Nagar school jumped off the terrace of her neighbour’s house at 3 am on Wednesday. The shocked parents were clueless why she took such an extreme step. They came to know about the reason when they found a suicide note from the girl. It proclaimed that her friends pointed out at her uniform and the bench that it had menstrual blood on it. She felt embarrassed and asked her teacher to go to the washroom. The teacher, instead of comprehending the girl’s problem, started yelling at her in front of the classroom. She even scolded the girl for not using the sanitary pad properly and hence, she asked the girl to leave the classroom.

The teacher’s atrocities didn’t come to an end after this. She took the hapless girl to the principal’s office, who chided her as well. 

"I don't know what to say. Until now you didn't hear any complaint about me but why did the teacher complain about me like this?", she asked in her suicide note.
