They found a severe lack of awareness about menstruation even among the most educated people, and that many still believed and followed menstrual myths. The lack of awareness and education about menstruation motivated her to undergo research on the subject for one year. She collated information from doctors and girls which gave her an idea to start a comic book with three young girls and a doctor as the main characters.
