Wherever I go these days, there is just one question asked, which I think quite intrusive, but still I am asked – both me and Saif – whether it is a boy or it is a girl. Have you found out? And I am like, excuse me, what difference does it make? I am a girl child; I would love to have a girl. What is the difference? Probably I have done more for my parents than a son would. We are still in a nation where we have been asked, oh you are getting married and still going to work, oh you are having a child – are you still going to work? These questions upset me. When I was asked if I would like to be a part of this initiative, my first reaction was: as an expectant mother on this journey, nothing would make me happier than being part of a movement.
What are your thoughts?
