Amitabh Bachchan writes a heartfelt, empowering letter to his grand daughters. I am lucky to be raised in a family where I get the same respect my brother or my husband gets, but in a country that still has a misogynist culture, his words resonate.
“Don’t live in the shadows of people’s judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom.
Don’t let anyone make you believe that the length of your skirt is a measure of your character.
Don’t let anyone’s opinion of who you should be friends with, dictate who you will be friends with.
Don’t get married for any other reason other than you want to get married.
People will talk. They shall say some terrible things. But that doesn’t mean you have to listen to everyone. Never ever worry about – log kya kahenge
At the end of the day, you are the only one who will face the consequences of your actions, so don’t let other people make your decisions for you.”
Love you Big B!
