After fighting through cancer with a smile on her face, Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap became an inspiration for many people. In September last year, she was detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in her right breast with high-grade malignant cells. Her Stage 0 breast cancer later progressed to the next stage. Tahira has been hailed for her positive attitude throughout her journey and has been quite open about battling the deadly disease with motivational messages.

Tahira has often taken to social media to share inspiring posts of her journey. She posted photographs where she shaved her head and showed off her surgery scars as her "badges of honor" on World Cancer Day. Today, once again, Tahira has a strong message for us and she has the entire internet’s attention. She uploaded a series of photos showing how chemotherapy affected her hair. Her caption reads- “WARNING!! Before you swipe left, some pictures might not go down too well with your palette. But I am hoping there is a change in the perception of that one perfect flavor that we have always had.” This post is dedicated to women of all shapes and sizes, and to those fret losing their hair during or after chemotherapy.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

WARNING!! Before you swipe left, some pictures might not go down too well with your palette. But I am hoping there is a change in the perception of that one perfect flavour that we have always had. The last couple of months have been an extreme case of metamorphosis for me. And I am not categorising it whether it was from a caterpillar to a butterfly phase or vice versa. I could be the larva or the pupa or any other intermediate stage as each phase is unique and special. But there is a deep sense of acceptance when it comes to the life cycle of this creature. Taking a ‘leaf’ from this caterpillars life, I feel I have undergone a tremendous change mentally and physically too. From my obsession with long hair, associating beauty with rapunzel tresses, and hiding most of the time behind my hair (as I felt secure , lest my crooked nose, or freckles or pimples or simply not so chiseled face isn’t exposed) to losing my hair, wearing extensions and a cap, going bald to now a short crop. I am enjoying every phase because somehow with hair I lost my insecurity, my stupid notion of beauty and my complexes. I don’t know whether I’ll keep long hair or not, in either case I am not going to hide my face. I don’t claim to have refined beauty, but I have changed my own mindset and my biggest victory is changing the mindset and perception of my 7 year-old-son, the next generation. From running to get a cap and placing it on my head when I was losing my hair and had a bald patch to proudly introducing me to his friends when I was bald or now with short hair, I feel I am a part of a change. This post is dedicated to women of all shapes and sizes and to all those posts I get when they fret losing their hair during or after chemotherapy. You are beautiful now and always #acceptance #selflove #longhair #baldhead #shorthair #kifarakpaindahai #breastcancerawarenss #changingkarmaintomission

Enough Tahira... Use your strengths to empower... Don't milk on weaker things.. That way you can fool mediocre minds but that's not worth it. You are privileged, so use your talent, stop being a victim.

This woman is just milking it now, sad
