Aditya Kanthy also talks about the "It's Just a Period" campaign, which aims to break the taboo surrounding menstruation in India. Aditya discusses how the campaign aimed to promote open conversations around menstruation by using a social experiment involving fathers and daughters, where the fathers explain the concept of period to their daughters and encourage them  to view periods as a natural and normal bodily function.  Aditya Kanthy talks about how McDonald's launched a new packaging called EatQual on the International Day of Person with Disabilities to make their burgers more accessible for their specially-abled customers. The innovative packaging was designed to help those with upper-limb disabilities enjoy the burgers using one hand. Developed in collaboration with an NGO, EatQual is one of many initiatives by McDonald's to make their experience more satisfying for all customers.  Follow Jagged with Jasravee on Social Media Campsite One Link : https://campsite.bio/jaggedwithjasravee
