While we aim to reach for the moon, stars, and other planets, we, as a nation, are still shrouded in darkness with the middle age thought process. Even today, some consider adoption, IVF, surrogacy under the sensitive (read taboo) subjects in our nation. And in a place where even talking about it is considered as a taboo, let alone people actually taking a step towards it and making a change in the society. But amidst such medieval thinking, there are some who fought the odds and inspired many, taking a step to bring a change in the society. And Bollywood’s ‘mast mast’ girl, Raveena Tandon had broken the stereotypes, when she had decided to become a single mother in her early twenties.

In a throwback interview, Raveena Tandon had expressed how she found sisters in her foster daughters and had remarked, “I was just 21 years old, when I adopted two girls. But they were like the two sisters I never had. We grew up together. In fact, I told them all the mistakes that I made in my life, so that they wouldn’t make the same in theirs.” Speaking about the challenges she had faced, Raveena had elaborated in a Verve magazine interview, “This was before Mohra (1994). My mother and I used to visit orphanages like Asha Sadan on our weekends. When my cousin passed away he left behind two young daughters, Chaya and Pooja. I didn’t like the way their guardian was treating them so I took them home with me. I didn’t think much of it. It came naturally to me. I wanted to give the girls the life they deserved. I’m not a multibillionaire but I do what I can to help.” (Also Read: Kalki Koechlin Flaunts Her Cute Baby Bump In A Swimsuit, Her Adorable Pregnancy Glow Is Unmissable)
