During this time, women are forbidden to touch men or even to enter the courtyard of their own homes. They are barred from consuming milk, yogurt, butter, meat, and other nutritious foods, for fear they will forever mar those goods. The women must survive on a diet of dry foods, salt, and rice. They cannot use warm blankets, and are allowed only a small rug; most commonly, this is made of jute (also known as burlap). They are also restricted from going to school or performing their daily functions like taking a bath, forced to stay in the conditions of the shed.

This system comes from the superstition of impurity during the menstruation period. In this superstitious logic, if a menstruating woman touches a tree it will never again bear fruit; if she consumes milk the cow will not give anymore milk; if she reads a book about Saraswati, the goddess of education, she will become angry; if she touches a man, he will be ill.

A family member offers food to women practising Chaupadi, without touching the dish or the women, in the hills of Legudsen village
in Achham District in western Nepal.

A youth gestures while being held up by others during a gathering celebrating Newroz, which marks the arrival of spring and the
new year, in Diyarbakir March 21, 2014.
Jailed Kurdish militant leader Abdullah Ocalan of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) called on the Turkish government on Friday to create a legal framework for their peace talks, whose fate is looking increasingly uncertain a year after he called a ceasefire by his fighters. Tens of thousands gathered in Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast, for the Kurdish new year celebrations of Newroz, where they listened to a statement written by Ocalan in his island jail of Imrali near Istanbul.

A member of the Samaritan community prays atop Mount Gerizim, above the city of Nablus, West Bank, after sunrise on June 8, 2014,
as they celebrate the Shavuot festival, marking the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai seven weeks after the exodus of the
Jewish people from Egypt.
The Samaritan religion descended from the ancient Israelite tribes of Menashe and Efraim and the community numbers today less than 700 people, half of who live on Mount Grizim in the West Bank and the other half in Holon, next to Tel Aviv, Israel. Samaritans recite prayers in ancient Hebrew using a Torah scoll.
