A TREE GROWS IN MUMBAI

Nestled in my grandmother’s housing complex (usually called “the colony”), smack-dab in the center of town, was a tree. It wasn’t the typical banyan or coconut tree that one would expect in the warm climate. It was a Douglas Fir.

TRAPPED BETWEEN CULTURAL TOLERANCE AND FEMINISM – featured on Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls

My mother had once mentioned to me an old tradition in South Indian villages where women were supposed to refrain from housework during their period. Apparently, the practice had started during ancient times, when women performed labor-intensive tasks. They were expected to fetch water from the well, cook meals for large, extended families and perform a battery of household chores that required a great deal of physical exertion. So, when their “chums” time came, this blanket ban on work was supposed to give them a few days’ rest. I figured this was literally ancient news, though. There was Midol now! And heating pads!
