The inspiration behind PadMan, Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social entrepreneur who invented the machine for manufacturing low-cost sanitary pads, initiated a #PadManchallenge on social media. In the challenge, one has to click a photo with a sanitary pad and share it on social media and tag other people who you want to take up the challenge next.
