As per a study published in the ‘British Medical Journal’, menstrual pain, heavy bleeding, and low mood may be linked to nearly nine days of lost productivity per woman every year. A focus group study indicates that 84.1 percent of women reported the occurrence of menstrual cramps or primary dysmenorrhea during their menstrual cycles.

Periods are usually associated with mild, tolerable lower abdomen or back discomfort but the pain (dysmenorrhoea) can be severe enough to interfere with day-to-day activities. The existing solutions in modern healthcare and allopathic medicine system are known to have harmful side effects in long term.

Shrey Jain, Co-Founder at HempStreet says: “Menstruation as a topic is highly stigmatized in our country. Period pain is often ignored by making a significant part of women’s lifestyle and working hours stressful and painful. But the fact is that women have even described the cramping pain as ‘almost as bad as having a heart attack’. On average, a woman goes through around 450 menstrual cycles throughout her lifetime. The irony is that the available solutions in modern medical science possess the threat of serious harmful effects in case of long-term consumption. Trailokya Vijaya Vati aims at providing a reliable, safe, and ayurvedic solution to the women of the 21st century.

South Korean game developer has introduced a new initiative for Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) which will enable a new level of parental control via time limitations and OTP confirmation. The 'Game Responsibly' initiative will also show warning messages along with break reminders, game limits and more. "Every player, below the age of 18, needs to register a parent or a guardian before they start playing for the first time. An OTP will be sent to the registered person's number, post which the minor is allowed to play the game," the company said in a statement.

Some games can get intense and make players lose track of time. However, with timely break-time reminders, the developer has made sure players get the required downtime. These reminders will help them look up from their game and get back to real life, maintaining a healthy game-life balance. In addition, with a strict gameplay limit in place players below 18 years must not indulge in gaming for more than 3 hours per day. This automatically helps them treat gaming as an activity performed in moderation.

The brand has also set an in-game daily spend limit of Rs 7,000 that automatically stops them from overspending and overgaming. Krafton recently announced that it has removed 25 lakh accounts in just over a month to eradicate cheating on Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). Since the last announcement, between October 1 and November 10, Krafton banned 25,19,692 accounts permanently and 7,06,319 temporarily. "The company has cleaned out most of the cheaters in the game, making BGMI a much more fun experience, and will continue to take whatever step is necessary to keep BGMI fair and fun," it claimed.
