Tahira Kashyap urges women out there to focus on mental health

Hyderabad: Tahira Kashyap, wife of Ayushmann Khurrana is known to be a strong woman and a fighter. A fighter because she is a cancer survivor and an inspiration to many women out there.

Not many know that Tahira was an athlete during her school days. She was the captain of the girls’ cricket team and a basketball player also. She was a runner and played javelin throw and shot put and she always made sure that she kept fit.

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, though she had her husband Ayushmann Khurrana by her side, she was very depressed as he was away shooting. In an interview with a leading news portal, she revealed that she used to cry the whole night.

Post chemotherapy, Tahira became very low. She decided to get fit even during the treatment and used to walk for 60-90 minutes every day.

Tahira wasn’t new to medication and treatments. During her college days, Tahira was on a high dose of thyroid medication. She is also allergic to gluten, nuts, eggs and mushrooms and is a practising vegetarian.

Tahira now believes that it is very important for a person to be mentally healthy, more than being physically fit. She practised Buddhist chanting to gain mental peace. Even now, when someone asks her what inspired her to become a fighter, she says that she believes in herself and that she can do things better.

Once again, it is proved that focusing on mental health can make things better for everyone and become turning points in life. Also Read:https://newsmeter.in/iit-hyderabad-researchers-produce-collagen-from-eel-skin/
