As one of the top Bollywood heroines, Former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen won many hearts in the late '90s. She's still winning hearts--of her kids, their school friends and their teachers.
Recently, the actress gave an inspirational speech at her daughter's Annual Day in school where she was invited as the chief guest. This will surely be remembered for a very long time.
Sen posted a video of her speech on Instagram.
The actress has two daughters--Renee (16) and Alisah (7).
At the event, the 40-year-old actress gave an insight into the meaning of life and referred to the 'Yellow Road' from L Frank Baum's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Here's what she said:
On student-teacher relationship--
"The wizards, the witches, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.... This all about knowing that Pink, Yellow road... It's about discovering your journey; it's about making friends along the way, respecting the teachers that teach you because these are the things that will never change in your life."
On the role of teachers--
"You will move on from a school to life itself and you will find new teachers, new guides, new friends but the only thing u will remember, is this nostalgic feeling in the bit of your stomach -- is who remembers your dna, who remembers what you are truly like, and that is what school life is all about."
Emphasising the importance of school life, the actress concluded her speech with a meaningful quote about life--
"As Frank Baum said, 'True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid.'"
