Hrithik Roshan’s mother, Pinkie Roshan shared how Hritik’s fight during his brain surgery not only made her a proud mother but also inspired her to fight life struggles more courageously.
As parents, we always try hard to instill character, courage, and determination in our kids. And, many of us try to inculcate those feelings by leading them through example. Because kids learn the best when they see their parents walking the talk. But for a parent, the proudest moment is when their kids start inspiring them back through courage, success, and determination.
One such parent is Hrithik Roshan’s mother, Pinkie Roshan took to her Instagram handle to share how Hritik’s fight during his brain surgery not only made her a proud mother but also inspired her to fight life struggle more courageously.
On January 10, 2020, Hrithik Roshan’s mother shared some unseen pictures and wrote a heartfelt note. She mentioned,
“Today I share these never before seen images with a heavy heart. However, it is not heavy with regret, sadness or concern. It is heavy from the immense love that flows through it, with each blood cell empowered by the immense gratitude I feel to be Duggu’s mother.
We set an example in the way we behave, we instil character in our children, support and encourage them, but what happens when their compassion, strength and courage outgrows that of the parent?”
Talking about how Hritik smiled through his brain surgery, she further added:
“What happens when everything you hoped to be, aspired for in terms of strength and inspiration is right before you in the eyes of your own son? Before Duggu was going for his brain surgery, I was almost fainting. Palpitations in my heart, blood pressure high, prayers on my tongue, I felt every inch of me was overwhelmed with a shadow of concern.
Seeing my son so vulnerable physically in the hands of the doctors made him seem as helpless as a newborn and he was again those same beautiful eyes looking up at me just as the day he arrived in the world. The eyes had no fear, no worry, no stress. I saw my reflection in them and found his strength empowering me and my own being changing because of his courage and determination to beat this. There has never been a challenge Duggu hasn’t faced head on and failed.”
It was in the year 2013, when Hrithik suffered an injury on his head while shooting for his movie, Bang Bang. And he had to undergo surgery for the same. Praising her son, Pinkie Roshan shared how proud she was:
“His power of mind is his superpower and the beauty of it is that it inspires all around him too, giving us strength. As he saw the sadness in my eyes, he winked and as if by magic he made me smile. A warmth enveloped my entire being as if I was bathed in light. A smile and a wink was all it took for me to feel reassured, energised, inspired and confident that he would be OK.
Look at these pictures and those eyes. Does this look the face of a man about to have major brain surgery? No, it looks like someone who has already conquered it. The small child I had carried for 9 months, given birth to and held in my arms was now cradling me in his and returning all the strength and love back to me and I gave him a million blessings in that moment.”
Pinkie also wished her son, Hrithik by writing a heartfelt note on his birthday. Sharing a picture of Hrithik, she wrote,
“My dear Duggu, you are one of the noblest souls on the planet who never fails to stand up for what you believe in, see the best in others and better yourself. There is no finish line you cross because once completing a challenge you always look past it at the next milestone and push further, harder, higher.
It is no wonder that so many look up to you and you have inspired millions to change their body and their mindset. You are an inspiration to me too and have brought so much to my life. On this day, I am grateful for you and the lessons YOU taught ME. I am in awe of your good heart and pray it never changes, only gro.ws. I wish you everything and more. And I write this with a heavy heart.. heavy because it is full of love, gratitude and blessings for you. Thank you and happy birthday.”
