Product Review – Vayu Natural Air Purifying Bag

Living in capital city of India is like a mixed bag of pros and cons attached to it. Modern infrastructure, apt availability of necessities, easy accessibility are all the good sides of the coin. The other picture includes – neck to neck traffic jams, high level of air pollutants and its health hazards. Every year the air around us is getting sicker and causing respiratory problems in kids and adults, alike. It’s not just the outside air which is harmful, even the indoors are contaminated.

Did you know that Indoor Air Pollution kills more than 1 million Indians every year?

We are unaware but simple things like – air fresheners, mildew and cleaning chemicals from our bathrooms, dust mites, smoke from our kitchens,  dust and pesticides from our yards, are all causes of indoor air pollution. It can cause mild discomfort to even serious health issues. To avoid all this, we turn towards air purifier. I recently came across a natural solution for air purification – Vayu Natural Air Purifying bags from Breathefresh.

My experience of Vayu Natural Air Purifying Bag

I was sent the product for review and have personally used it for sometime now. The bag is advertised to remove remove maximum odours, excess moisture, and pollutants of different particle sizes. And believe me, it has lived up to the name!

  • I had used the product in bathrooms were the pungent odour is maximum. With a use of three days, I could feel the reduction in unpleasant odour in bathroom.
  • Also, placed it in my room and could feel the difference in air we breathe in. I can say this for sure because my allergy has definitely improved and coughing has reduced. Thus, the indoor air is much cleaner and fresh now.

Next, I am going to use it in my wardrobe to observe the change.

The longest night!

You had just moved into the recovery room after your surgery. I could see the effect of anesthesia wearing off and you had started feeling the pain. The soft cries that escaped your lips sounded like thunder to my ears.

You wanted to quench your thirst and were biting your dry lips again and again. The doctor’s instruction were clear – no food and water for next 24 hours. Nothing should jeopardize your recovery and so I stood my ground.

The pain must have been exhausting for you. Thankfully, the pain killers worked and you dozed off. I had planned to stay awake whole night and was watching you every ten seconds. At midnight, I was jolted by your cry for help!

My first thoughts were something went amiss in the surgery. And, I was scared. The nurses and the on-call doctors were called in. I vividly remember you trying to speak but were unable to do so clearly. You kept pointing towards your face and no one could understand. More doctors entered the room in time being.

I do not remember who identified the problem first – doctor, nurse or me. But, suddenly everyone in room was talking about your jaw dropping towards right side of the face. The doctors were worried that your body was adversely reacting to anesthesia. For me, it was my worst fears coming alive.

Next thing I remember is your clear words saying, “Jaw stuck”.

Somehow your jaw had dislocated during the day and it was causing you all the pain.The dislocated jaw meant you were unable to close your mouth or speak properly.

Everyone in the room became hyperactive. The orthopedic surgeon on night duty was called in and nurses were contacting your surgeon in case of any emergency.

The doctors tried to set it back into the correct position by manipulating the area back into its proper position.All this while, you kept nudging the doctors away to stop them from touching you. They had to put you under anesthesia to fix your jaw and a heart rate monitor was attached to monitor your pulse.

All this happened in the recovery room itself and your jaw was fixed in no time. The heart rate monitor was left attached to your body for the night with its sharp beeping sounds on. I was terrified to hear it, but at least I knew you were alright.

My night was spent watching your pulse rate numbers fluctuate on that little box and keeping my fingers crossed. I was praying silently to all the Gods to keep you safe, for we had a bright future ahead waiting for us. Throughout this experience, the thought about our yet to be born child was pinching at my heart. And, I know that it also gave you strength to recover fast.

The next morning when you woke up with a faint smile, I knew our prayers were answered.

Living that night with six weeks of pregnancy is one of the daring thing I have ever done. All I wanted was to cry and hug you, but I guess motherhood made me stronger for both of us. I could not give up when you needed me the most.

Have you ever faced such an impossible situation where you wanted to give up? How did your overcome your fear. Share your story in comments. You can read my personal experience here.

The unsaid reality of Menstruation!

‘Do not sit with others.’

‘You cannot enter the temple’.

‘Do not touch the pickle’.

‘You cannot sleep besides your husband’.

These words might not mean much to many of us. But, ask a girl who is told this every month for throughout her lifetime. She is given a list of do’s and don’ts to be followed for whenever she is menstruating.

Across the world, different cultures have stigmas attached with periods. The women are confined to a single room in-house. In some cases, even shunned outside villages to live in sheds for ‘that time of the month’. They live in unhygienic conditions and without a proper diet when it is utmost needed.

Some consider the women to be impure and it is a sin for these women to touch any men while on periods. It is improper to talk about periods with male members of the family. When will we realize that this ill-treatment should stop? Rather than neglect, a women needs extra care while menstruating.  It is time that we spoke about it and educate the masses.

Menstruation is medically defined as,

“The process in a woman of discharging blood and other material from the lining of the uterus at intervals of about one lunar month from puberty until the menopause, except during pregnancy.”

Thus, it is a natural bodily function which proves that a girl/women is healthy. And, there is nothing to be ashamed about. Studies also suggest that it eliminates excess iron, which can be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Steps to spread awareness
  • Educating children, both girls and boys, about the periods at an early age to help them understand it.
  • Identify the areas and conduct street play, talk shows in those areas.
  • Correct the people who joke about the ‘PMS’ and educate them about the real symptoms like, headache, backache, nausea, cramping,etc.
  • Adapt the culture where the start of menstrual cycle for a girl is celebrated rather than looked down.
  • Government policies should be introduced for manufacturing safe and hygienic menstrual products.
  • Easy and affordable access for these products to be available to all the women in the country.
  • Most importantly, we should reject the stigma/taboos attached with menstrual cycles and stop shaming girls for it.

This World Menstrual Hygiene Day (May 28), our endeavor is to break the taboo that engulfs this natural phenomenon that is the basis of very existence of human life on earth.
