Actress Isha Koppikar talks of how we should celebrate and be joyful on the arrival of a girl in our lives.
“I am a proud mother of a sweet daughter, with whom I share a special bond. My relationship with her is evolving into a beautiful friendship as she grows older.
A girl child is a blessing. She is strong, beautiful & nurturing. She teaches you the meaning of love and care. She is meant to shine. Every parent of a girl will tell you this, it’s the most beautiful feeling ever.”
Giving a message to everyone, she further said, ” Every girl is a daughter of the nation. Let’s make the world safer for them. Let’s teach them tonbe independent, to be self sufficient and to be strong enough to protect themselves. Let’s be the wind beneath her wings.
