Pad Man is a fictionalized account of Padmashri Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who revolutionized manufacture of low cost sanitary napkins in India. Lakshmi is a newly married, humble welder from a rural village in the heart of India. Lakshmi’s incredible journey starts when he is shocked to discover that his wife uses an unhygienic cloth during her periods. Unable to afford a branded pad, he decides to make a sanitary pad himself. After several attempts, his irate wife refuses to be a part of his experiments. Lakshmi’s love & concern for his wife, his determination to make the pad, leads him into situations causing shock & embarrassment compelling his wife to leave him & his village to banish him. Lakshmi doesn’t give up. His simplicity of thought, resilience, focus & complete disregard for convention finally leads him to his destiny. A machine that can make a pad! The revolution that follows…from spreading menstrual hygiene, to empowering women, to starting mini cooperatives, to a vision of making India a 100% Pad using country, to accolades, to international glory and to a final resolution of his personal life, makes the rest of the feature “PAD MAN”. His journey to make India a 100% pad using country goes on…even today.
