Malayalam magazine cover showing model breastfeeding child goes viral, invites reactions

New Delhi: Malayalam magazine 'Grihalakshmi' decided to have a breastfeeding woman on its March 1 issue cover.

The caption on the cover page of the magazine read out loudly, "Mothers tell Kerala, 'please don't stare, we need to breastfeed'." 

Since the subject is still not talked about openly in the country and even in Kerala, the step taken by the publication is being considered to be a bold one.
