An opportunity to give competition to the Kardashians just went wasted! A week back I mentioned about ‘my badge of honour’ that I was going to receive. And I did and am happy to share about it with the intention of it being received with love. As that’s the only reason I am posting it. Love for self and gratitude for the universe. The picture might be disturbing for some, but these drains have become my dumbells for a few days. I was detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in my right breast with high grade malignant cells. Simply put stage 0 cancer/ pre-cancerous stage, with cancer cells multiplying in a contained area. The result I have become a half Indian version of Angelina Jolie (since only one breast was involved)! I told my doctor now is the time to give some competition to the Kardashians since Pamela is passé. But no one listened to me, so now I have a portion of my back tissue in my breast. Perhaps now I can do chin-ups with my breasts! Jokes apart, this obstacle has given me a new definition of life. Respect it’s unpredictability and have the faith and courage to be the hero of your own drama of life. The invincible human spirit is God like, gives you the courage to endure and the will to revive. There is nothing that human spirit can’t do. Also I want women of all ages to be aware. I am 35, and I was returned twice over from a mammogram. If any symptoms come up, think of it as a protective force and get yourselves examined. Also we are so obsessed with boobs. This mastectomy has left me with even more self love! Big, small, left or right inclined , gravity pulling or defying, or even none, each breast the presence or lack of it has a story to tell. Mine has made me a 2.0 version of myself! This post is dedicated to awareness, self love and resilience of a warrior that I know each one of us possesses❤️ #breastcancerawareness #selflove #determination #faith #bodhisattva #bodhisattvaoftheearth

Tahira had since been posting pictures and videos of her living her life to the fullest. 


And she clearly had her husband standing with her, as a pillar of strength. 


In January, Tahira posted a selfie rocking her bald look. 

In her Instagram post, she said she was done wearing extensions, and that is was ‘liberating’ living without it.


Tahira wasn’t going to let cancer, or her bald head, get in the way of enjoying her life.

She was seen partying it up on her birthday not too long ago.


Over the weekend, she featured at the Lakme Fashion Week and owned the ramp like the queen she is. 


“I got the instructions to not to smile too much, but couldn’t control 😄🙈 first time and super fun!” 


On the occasion of ‘World Cancer Day’, Tahira and Ayushmann Khurrana both shared the same picture, with equally powerful statements. 

Tahira’s post read: ‘I truly embrace all my scars as they are my badges of honor. There is nothing known as perfect. Happiness lies in truly accepting yourself. This was a tough one for me. But this picture was my decision as I want to celebrate not the disease but the spirit with which I endured.’

Today is my day! Wish you all a happy #worldcancerday and hope each one of us celebrates this day in an embracing way. That we remove any stigma or taboo associated with it. That we spread awareness about it and that we have self love no matter what. I truly embrace all my scars as they are my badges of honour. There is nothing known as perfect. Happiness lies in truly accepting yourself. This was a tough one for me. But this picture was my decision as I want to celebrate not the disease but the spirit with which I endured. To quote my mentor, Diasaku Ikeda, “Leading an undefeated life is eternal victory. Not being defeated, never giving up, is actually a greater victory than winning, not being defeated means having the courage to rise to the challenge. However many times we’re knocked down, the important thing is we keep getting up and taking one step-even a half step- forward” #worldcancerday #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerwarrior #turningkarmaintomission #boddhisatva Thanks @atulkasbekar for this one❤️

Ayushmann Khurrana used his social media to commemorate and celebrate the love of his life: ‘Your scars are beautiful. You are a trailblazer. Keep inspiring the millions to fight their personal battles.’

People sent their love and well wishes to Tahira!


She was called ‘zinda dil’ 

Tahira is truly an inspiration!


Cancer is a horrible disease that has claimed so many lives. Those who are still fighting it, people like Tahira, are the bravest people ever and they deserve and need all of our support. Tahira is phenomenal in that she’s taken her battle with cancer and worn it as a matter of pride. She’s living her life to the best of her ability and not letting anything or anyone get her down.  She’s not letting cancer win- she’s making herself and her happiness a priority, and that’s pretty dope if you ask me.

Her scars are a permanent feature on her body, they’re her battle wounds from the most important battle she’s fought. Why shouldn’t she celebrate them? She’s not celebrating the disease, she’s celebrating her will and her strength against it!
