When we are asked about whom we consider as our idol, most of us would name a celebrity. But the truth is that no matter how many idols we might have on-screen, the most inspiring ones would be the ones around us, our family and friends. For parents, it is a difficult challenge to raise their daughter to make her identity in the man’s world but it is the women around the little one, who become an inspiration for her to grow up to be a confident and successful human being! Empowerment is best modelled in the environment and learning comes from what’s demonstrated around her. Let’s see how the mother of two beautiful girls, Esha Deol Takhtani wants to raise her daughters!

Raised by a working mother, Hema Malini and in a home with women around, Esha Deol Takhtani has instilled a strong sense of independence and gender equality comes to her naturally. Now that Esha is a mother of two beautiful angels, Radhya Takhtani and Miraya Takhtani, she wants to instill the three important qualities i.e., self-respect, dignity and grace, in her daughters too. When Esha had embraced motherhood for the first time, she had taken a short sabbatical from her professional commitments, and had made a comeback a few months later with a short film, Cakewalk. Then during her second pregnancy, Esha had ventured into a new profession i.e., an author and a few months after the birth of Miraya, her debut book, Amma Mia was published.
Esha Deol Takhtani is leaving no stone unturned to set a fine example for her daughters, Radhya Takhtani and Miraya Takhtani and become an inspiration for them. Be it on the personal or professional front, Esha is being an exemplar of women empowerment for her little girls. On September 4, 2020, Esha had virtually attended ISEY 2020 and spoke about how she wishes to raise her little angels. Esha was quoted as saying, “I wish to raise my two girls as strong women who uphold their dignity and self-esteem.” Emphasising on the role of grandparents in a child’s life, Esha had remarked, “Grandparents are angels in a child’s life.”
When Esha Deol Takhtani had won the Best Actress Award at MTV IWMBUZZ Digital Awards and Society Iconic Indian Awards, she had credited her little angels, Radhya Takhtani and Miraya Takhtani. Revealing how Cakewalk had changed her life, Esha had said, "Cakewalk changed my life, and I would give entire credit to my daughters. I am a completely different person today because of my lovely daughters. I would like to continue my work and also make sure that I give my hundred percent to my daughters. I will take them along to my shoots and spend time when I am not working." (Also Read: Esha Deol Shared How Her Daughters, Radhya-Miraya Would Join Her And Nani, Hema Ji In Dance Practice)
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Esha Deol Takhtani had revealed how it is to be a working mother and how she tries to manage her kids and work. She had stated, “I am not the kind of person who will sit and do nothing. I now do my work meetings at home as my daughters are my responsibility and I want to spend time with them. Radhya really enjoys being on sets.” Esha and her husband, Bharat Takhtani make sure that either parent is at home when the other is travelling for work, Esha continued, “We like our kids to wake up to either of us, if not both.”
Esha Deol Takhtani had credited her mother, Hema Malini for the urge to fulfill one’s dreams even after motherhood as with her youngest one-year-old daughter, Miraya Takhtani, the 38-year-old star is raring her way back to the films. Esha had remarked, “I definitely want to get back to acting, but I won’t reveal anything now. You will hear an announcement soon.” Esha had continued, “My mother is full of good advice, but I feel the best one is that if you are working before marriage or are pursuing any passion, continue working and fulfil your dreams, and don’t give up your career and interests post marriage and kids. It’s important to allow your partner to work and fulfil her dreams. Don’t lose your identity after marriage or kids.” (Also Read: Esha Deol Reacts To Her Comeback Reports After Sabbatical Post The Birth Of Her Second Born Miraya)
