THE PAD PIPER

by Akanksha Sood Singh


A self-made entrepreneur from India, whose innovation deals with a subject which is taboo and definitely does not concern Indian men.


His invention is changing lives for thousands of women. He started by making a sanitary pad at home for his wife Shanti. Driven by a passion for creativity, the development spread over a period of 8 years. Improving hygiene practices and comfort for women, he replaced chemicals used in the fabrication of sanitary pads with natural substances from the cotton fields.  He thus produced biodegradeable pads which are affordable to rural households.


His mantra  “Production by Masses versus Mass Production” is achieved by converting a centralized macro activity into a decentralization micro activity.
