Recently, Niyati Joshi, daughter of Dilip Joshi, the famous Jethalal of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, went viral for all the right reasons. The pictures of Niyati went viral when the actor, Dilip Joshi, shared the fantastic news of his daughters’ marriage with the world.
Dilip welcomed his new “son” and wished his daughter by penning a sweet note on Instagram saying, “You can borrow feelings from songs and films, but when it all happens to you first-hand… that experience is unparalleled. Wishing my little girl, Niyati and the newest entrant to the family, my son, Yashowardhan, the very best and so much more on this amazing journey! Thank you to everyone who shared our happiness by being with us, or by sending their aashirwad and good wishes for the couple. Jay Swaminarayan.”
After the pictures went online, the netizens were amazed how the bride flaunted her grey hair with all the confidence.
When it comes to preparing yourself for the big day, many brides and grooms spend a lot of effort to lose weight to tackle skin issue or color grey hair! It is sad how society’s unfair expectation to look the best versions of ourselves, push many men and women to forget their real self and pretend to be someone else.
In the society, where the bride has to bear the pressure of unsolicited judgments, this brave soul decided to flaunt her grey hair. While society may label white hair as a flaw, Niyati wore it like a badge of honor. Wearing a traditional red and yellow Banarasi sari, she paired her look with a matha patti, and styled her hair in a low bun accessorised with flowers.
While there were some netizens who attempted to troll her but countless people supported her for her simplicity and self-confidence. Niyati’s look received a thumbs up from the netizens.
One user wrote, “Thank you for sporting your grey hair and NOT colouring it due to societal pressure. I think it’s very important to be our natural selves and embrace who we are even on special occasions. More power to you.”
The other user wrote,“As someone who has been mocked a lot by people around me for having grey hair (which is because of heredity in my case), this comforts my horrible insecurity. Hugs to this wonderful woman.”
Another user wrote, “She is looking very beautiful.. Someone rightly said that Grey hairs are better than grey character.. Stay blessed always..!”
One user wrote,“I think credit should be given to the brides parents for supporting her decision. The younger generation shud be allowed to make their decision freely without judgement grey hair is fine so is dyed hair as long as they are doing for their own satisfaction”
It’s quite refreshing how some women are taking a stand against societal unfair demands of looking perfect on the wedding day. These brave souls are standing for themselves and defining on their own how they want to look like on their wedding day.
We hope many more would seek inspiration from Niyati and make an effort to love themselves so deeply that they defy the negative voices of society, who try to belittle them for their beauty and fashion choices. Thanks Niyati for showing the world that women are more than their hair color, skin tone or body weight!!
