She is producing a feature film named "The Unusual Inventor," which is based on a true story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who this year was named among the Top 100 Most Influential in the Time Magazine. Why Muruganantham? Nina Srivastava says Muruganantham and his invention faced quite a battle with societal taboos, family abandonment, and was labeled a "pervert" but he changed the lives of millions of women.

"I decided to make a film on this issue once I heard extremely disturbing facts about India. About 88 percent of women in India resort to using newspapers, leaves, sand, and even ash — instead of a sanitary pad- because of the cost," says Srivastava. "Seventy percent suffer from reproductive tract infection, while 23 percent of young girls drop out of school after the on-set. A similar situation holds true for over 100 countries. As a woman filmmaker, I knew I had to do something to bring this topic into the mainstream."

While new cases of Polio in Britain are thankfully yesteryear's news, the lasting legacy of Polio is still very much an issue today. In the 1950s Britain was rocked by a Polio epidemic that claimed the lives of thousands.

Being a sixteen year old American-born Indian, most visits to India consist of visiting well-known landmarks and meeting family in their comfortable air-conditioned homes. This time, I had a different goal in mind. I wanted to see the side of India that I had heard about, but never actually experienced. I also wanted to engage and work with the less fortunate community.
