Twitter is a mysterious place. You might find it a conflict war zone one day, and a love paradise on the other. Be it a meaningless war of words or some thought provoking perspectives, a lot is being tweeted every second on this social media platform.

Recently, twitterverse appealed to our Minister of Finance, Arun Jaitley, to make sanitary napkins tax-free after SheSays started this campaign. This small ripple of hope became huge when the support started pouring in from entertainment industry and other influential celebrities. The hashtag #LahukaLagaan trended and garnered a massive reach.

Kaneen Surka, a stand-up comedian, mentioned how the taxes make sanitary napkins even more unaffordable and make women resort to other unhygienic methods.

Cyrus Broacha and Kunal Vijayakar also made a video to address the issue and make an appeal. And where there's Cyrus, there has to a comical twist.
