In India, single mothers always fight a lonely battle against the stereotypical mindset and gender bias. But this couldn’t stop Sakshi Talwar, a famous TV & Bollywood personality, from adopting a baby girl.
The 45-year-old actress shared the news with the world that she has adopted a baby girl. Sakshi has named her daughter Dityaa, after the Goddess Lakshmi. And, she believes that Dityaa is a blessing to her from goddess Lakshmi.
Sakshi shared with TOI,
“With the blessings of my parents and the support of my family and friends, I have adopted a baby girl who would soon turn 9 months old. I am extremely delighted to share my happiness with you as I welcome the bundle of joy in my life. This is undoubtedly the greatest moment of my life and I and my entire family are elated to embrace Dityaa. She is the answer to all my prayers and I feel blessed to have her in my life..”
Inspiring women like Sakshi, are the befitting reply to our society which builds unnecessary pressure on women to get married as they turn 25 and to become a mother as they turn 27. She is an inspiration that no one can dictate your life or your dreams.
It is beautiful to see how her entire family is supporting her. Recently, Sakshi’s brother took to Twitter to welcome Dityaa Singh Tanwar – the newest member in the family with a picture, saying,
“Welcoming the littlest member of our family #DityaaSinghTanwar.”
After Susmita Sen, Sakshi represents the young women, who are taking the adoption route to listen to their maternal instincts. We congratulate Sakshi and hope our society will show respect to these single mothers as much as they do to the married mothers.
And, we think many people do agree with us:
Our hearty congratulations to the entire family..bless the lil angel..and let #SakshiTanwar know we are so so elated, and PROUD of her. More power to her! God bless her! Lots and lots of blessings..Be Blessed, Be Blessed, Be Blessed !
