The actor, who shot to fame as Jiya in the Hindi television serial Shararat, wrote, “So 2020 managed to give me and my family a last jolt, with me ending up in an emergency surgery. All my Christmas and new year travel plans have been suspended and here I am just giving thanks for averting a major health crisis. I guess I hadn’t really learnt the lessons I was meant to; but now I have been schooled.”
According to her, her hospitals make one realise that beneath vanity, ego, personality and the life experiences, everyone is human.
“Food is a drug just for the brain; the body can survive on a glucose drip and I love food and I missed it so much. Even the most basic bodily functions are the work of some incredible engineering so be grateful for just being able to open your eyes every morning or being able to fall asleep at night. Be good to your body so it can return the favour when you need it. Count your blessings and hold on to people who love you and genuinely care about your well being.”
Wishing everyone happy new year, she added, “I’m just happy everything happened in good time and this is the last of what 2020 had in store for me. I actually have physical scars to remind me about the uniqueness of the year gone by. And I hope they remind me to always say thanks! I’m sending all of you tonnes of love and positivity for the new year. May it treat us kindly.”
