Trigger warning: Blood, mensuration, periods. What is a menstrual cup? It is a small silicone conical cup with a stem - as if the base is cut off from a wine glass. You insert it in (did I scared you here? I will talk more about this in the next posts). Unlike other feminine care options (not going to say female hygiene products because periods are not 'unhygienic'), it does not absorb menstrual blood but collects it. After 8-10 hours (or 4-6 in case of heavy flow), you can pull it out, remove the blood, and reinsert. You can use the same cup for years. Just sanitize after the end o ..read more

But, in the end it was appreciated. I was not expecting a shower of appreciation and positive feedbacks. I was feeling super pumped. So, after 10 years, I took it as a challenge to bake last evening. Look at this! Made with zero help.&nb ..read more

Work is going on and I am trying to learn the things that I always wanted. I have a sleep schedule now - sleep around 8 PM sleep and wake up at 4 AM - which is not perfect but works for me.  My location is still a hotspot so, we cannot go to any shops. Luckily, able to get the few basics we need on Big Basket or via Milk Basket. Timelines have reduced from a week to one or two days - this is a big win.  I still wonder what is essentia ..read more
