Aditi is the founder of menstrupedia.com. She co-founded the site with Tuhin Paul, who is also her husband, in November 2012. Menstrupedia is a friendly guide to healthy periods. It aims at educating girls and women about periods and breaking the various myths attached to this taboo subject. It is unique as it is India’s first such site which talks so openly about women’s monthly cycles.
Aditi is a post-graduate in New Media Design from National Institute of Design, and graduated in Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering. Aditi first got the idea for Menstrupedia while doing her thesis on the very subject for her post graduation at NID (National Institute of Design).
Aditi was born and brought up in Garhwa, a small town in Jharkhand, where she had to deal with the same associated with the act of buying sanitary napkins, and had to resort to using rags. Later in her college she realized that there is very little information available in India for so called monthly curse of women, she then along with Tuhin Paul developed a comic book in Hindi to educate girls & women about menstruation and she even won a Ford Foundation scholarship for same.
In past Aditi has worked in Ford foundation as research associate and user experience designer in other two companies. She was also recently listed in Forbes India ’30 under 30' list for her efforts in making the masses aware about the myths attached to menstruation.
