I had to take him to every doctor in Mumbai for his acne, and some would recommend pills. But I was not very happy with the pills for such a young girl. There were days when her acne was so bad she wouldn’t come out of her room…”

To which, she said that even after being a modern woman, she still lacked the courage to have a child in love. She mentioned that she had to deal with whispers and taunts around her for a long time. In his words:
“Accepting is one thing, but what happens behind the scenes is another. You would pass comments like this, she slept with someone and had a baby. I have read stories of so many single mothers who had children out of wedlock. They have to deal with whispers and people talking behind their backs. Nothing has changed over time. Being a modern woman, do I have the courage to have a baby out of wedlock? marriage? Ever. I don’t want to take that extra pressure and put a kid in that space.”
