Excerpts From Big B's Letter
"Both your pardadajis gave your present surnames celebrated fame, dignity and recognition. Both of you may be a Nanda or a Bachchan, but you are also girls... women."
"When People Will Tell You How To Behave"
"And because you are women people, will force their thinking, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go."
"Make Your Own Choices"
"Don't live in the shadows of people's judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom. Don't let anyone make you believe that the length of your skirt is a measure of your character."
"Get Married When YOU Want To"
"Don't let anyone's opinion of who you should be friends with, dictate who you will be friends with. Don't get married for any other reason other than you want to get married."
"Never Worry About – Log Kya Kahenge"
"People will talk. They shall say some terrible things. But that doesn't mean you have to listen to everyone. Never ever worry about - log kya kahenge."
"Don't Let Others Make Your Decision For You"
"At the end of the day, you are the only one who will face the consequences of your actions, so don't let other people make your decisions for you."
"Navya - the privilege your name, your surname offers you, will not protect you from the difficulties you will face because you're a woman."
"Aaradhya - by the time you see and understand this, I may well not be around. But I think what I am saying today shall still be relevant."
"Be The Change"
"This may be a difficult, difficult world to be a woman. But I believe that it is women like you that will change that."
"Set An Example For Others"
"It may not be easy, setting your own boundaries, making your own choices, rising above people‘s judgement. But you, you can set an example for women everywhere."
