Polytheism - An Alouette

The menstruation,

Till its cessation

Makes women to live outside

Their homes for four days

Come home on fifth day

Husbands helping and inside.


Based on an ancient Indian custom as the women were not allowed to touch anything

in the house for four days of their menstruation cycle every month. They were considered 
untouchable religiously.
