Sushmita Sen shares a picture of her daughters Renee and Alisah and writes, 'Women can't be defined generically, even when mentioned collectively!!!To truly celebrate a woman, it's important to accept all 'her' nuanced differences, her innate strength, momentary vulnerabilities & yes strength again!it's often said, 'women are complicated' well, imagine going through a lifetime of fast paced changes, physically, biologically, emotionally, socially...then realise, just how uncomplicated a 'woman' actually makes it all look!!
'She's not perfect, but gives it 'HER' all, she's born with a heart of a nurturer, with the 'Will' to be a provider. She's #shakti not for the lack of fear but for owning courage inspite of it!She's a force of nature, that drives the seasons..no matter what the role, resilient until the very end! Dugga Dugga #HappyWomensDay what a privilege to be born a woman!!! With love & kisses, Alisah, Renée & yours truly!!!I love you guys!!!
