OM SHANTI F*CK
Ambika finds herself in bloody embarrassing hell when she gets up to find she’s left a period stain on the carpet in a sacred Hindu temple. Big deal?
2018. Sex, periods and the “Good Indian girl”. Ambika questions the strange myths of Indian culture and the sexist taboos that have made her feel inadequate to be a woman all her life.
