Sushmita Sen has always lived her life on her own terms. Whether it was about career choices or being a single mother to her two lovely girls, Renee and Alisah, Sen has always been a great inspiration for women. In an interview with Rajeev Masand on Women We Love, Sen opened up about joining Instagram and why she did it after all, and said, “I was very very sick and I have hair that’s falling. I have become moon-faced and I have steroid deposits. During this time, a thought crossed my mind, if this does kill me, people would never know who I was. So one night, I just got on to Instagram and opened that page.”
Sen’s Instagram is also nothing short of being an inspiration in itself – there are fitness videos, stories from the lives of her daughters and the love she has for the man in her life, Rohman Shawl.

We’re super proud of these 30 state winners of the Femina Miss India 2019, but is it just us who see that these are all women who look almost very similar, have almost the same skin tone – falling into the “fair” category? Is it just us who see everything that is wrong with this image, and most importantly the idea of “beauty”? Has a contest like the Femina Miss India established a certain “ideal beauty”? Again, we’re very proud of these women, but along with the @missindiaorg, they too contribute to the continued existence of patriarchy.
