Today Guneet Monga's 'Period. End of Sentence' created history by winning the Best Documentary Short Subject at the Oscars 2019 aka the 91st Academy Awards.
The 26-minute documentary is set in Hapur, a village in Uttar Pradesh and deals with the taboo around menstruation and how the women come together to create sanitary pads of their own, when a machine is installed in the village.

The whole world is talking about this documentary and so is Mumbai Police, but for a totally different yet equally important cause. Mumbai Police's social media team is known and lauded for coming up with creative and witty messages, on things that are going viral on the internet. This time too they did not disappoint us at all.
Mumbai Police referred to the Oscar-winning documentary and wrote, "If cities were given an Oscar, Mumbai would have bagged some of the trophies definitely!"February 25, 2019
As expected, people were once again left impressed with Mumbai Police's creativity and ingenuity.
Both 'Whoever is managing this account' and Mumbai Police has great skills in making observations and connecting the dots. Great work ! ð— PickupDaddy (@pritalking) February 25, 2019
