This is my mother’s face.
This is me speaking at the Sheroes Summit in Delhi this week.
I looked nice in the washroom mirror before I went on stage. I talked myself out of my nervousness the whole day. Just go and tell your story as if every word matters.
I feel like I look ugly in this photo. Something has happened to my jaw in the last few years. It ages me.
I also used to worry that my mother was ugly when she was my age. I was 10 years old then.
Now she is 70. She is beautiful. Maybe I am too. I will learn to see it.
