Oh just few days to go for International Women’s Day and we’ve already got you something you’d love to raise a toast. Uterus, cervix, ovaries, breasts- all the bodily assets that a woman is blessed with so as to become the life-carrier, are very much prone to be invaded by the fatal cancer. Well, we can’t really call cancer ‘fatal’ anymore for with advancements in health sciences, it has become way more curable than before. But the treatment and its aftermaths are no less of a challenge.
The 43 YO Bollywood Diva Sonali Bendre has recently talked about her ordeal with cancer. She says she tasted victory after her surgery, that get chemotherapy sessions were painful but she conquered them all because she wanted to live with all her will power. However, she has lost her lovely locks and is now rocking her bold bald look.
“Honestly, it is easier. A lot of baggage is off. Somewhere I realised, I was hiding a lot behind my hair. It is nice to look at it from all angles. My body is different, but I am making peace with it. It takes a lot of threshold to do that. I will be ok with my imperfections. I will find beauty in them”, says a happy Sonali.
Inspired? Okay, wait. That’s not it and we want you to meet another gorgeous fighter who has not only defeated cancer twice but is also breaking every stereotype with her The Bald Indian Bride
Vashnavi always wanted to be a bride- a beautiful, a gorgeous one. But before the could meet her groom, she met with breast cancer in 2013 at the tender age of 23. She went through vigorous chemotherapy and a lumpectomy surgery before she was declared cancer free in 2015. Her cancer turned out to be a stubborn one and so did she. Her cancer hit her again in 2018 and she defeated it again, like a boss!
However, the victory didn’t come for free. She lost a lot in the meantime, including her hair. But not her courage, her strength, her determination and her soulful laughter.
“Nothing can stop me….nope, NOTHING! Not even CANCER!,” she shouted out to life again and made a comeback with a bridal photoshoot. Here are a few pics of her wherein she looks like she has just walked out of a dream! Every bride is beautiful but Vashnavi certainly stands out in the crowd! How can someone help but not melt seeing that pretty smile and those lively eyes!
Dear ladies, as some of us are busy buying fairness cream to lighten our skin tone, using filters to hide our acnes or crying over our wide hips- these ladies have something really important to tell us. Beauty doesn’t lie in one’s face. Not sure if it lies in the eyes of the beholder but it certainly lies on one’s soul and character. Hug yourself, ladies and not your reflection in the mirror. Because you’re beautiful when you’re ‘you’.
