Today, on the occasion of World Cancer Day, writer and cancer survivor Tahira Kashyap has recited a heartfelt poem on her social media handles. To make the event, Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife made a video wherein she can be seen reciting a poem penned by her. In her inspirational poem, Tahira talked about her cancer battle and encouraged cancer patients and survivors to embrace their scars like a "badge of honour." While the writer is receiving love from everyone for creating cancer awareness via her poem,  Ayushmann is proud of his wife.

Taking to her Instagram, Tahira dropped a video that is doing rounds on the internet and it is surely giving us motivation. In the video, she can be heard saying, “Some scars are deep, some within. Some are seen, while some are hidden. The thing about scars is, it reminds you of the past, The moments of suffering that you thought would forever last. But there's more these goddamn scars, They're secrets in far away, just like stars. It's the truth which you don't see with your naked eye. Oblivious to the functioning of the world, a blatant lie. But hear me, there's more to the scar, It also talks about the fight, the resilience and your invincible power. My love and respect to those who fought, The treacherous battlefield that some crossed, while some got lost. But the thing with the health karma is that everyone is a winner, For it's the fight that counts, whether you're an expert or a beginner. The fight with cancer is not just physical but also mental, Some battles are more tough to conquer especially if they're internal.”
