Body-shamming has become very common on social media. It's become a platform where trolls without any guilt shame people for who they are. But we must give it to our celebrities who give it back to such trolls with befitting replies. This time we have Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor Karan Mehra's wife Nisha Rawal who recently faced the wrath of netizens for her pictures. She was belly-shamed and people even asked her if she was pregnant. Penning a long note on social media, she poured her feeling saying how she has always had a belly.
Nisha writes, "BELLY-SHAME! This picture was clicked yesterday & ‘No! I ain’t pregnant’ & ‘Yes! I have a belly’. This must be my 3rd elaborate post on shaming! Shame, 1stly is the strongest of human emotions! The victim withdraws into his shell. It never did anyone, any good! Belly shame is one of the many kinds of shaming we have in our stigmatised society! I have always had a tummy. It would become smaller or bigger depending on my fitness regime but would never go away! I was always ashamed of it & that made me do things that would either injure me by beating myself up in the gym doing crunches until my muscles went into a cramp or would do the opposite with my hog-sprees!"
Along with the post, she shared a few pictures wearing casuals showing off her belly. Further, in the caption, she wrote how during her wedding, all the attention was on her tummy. She also stated that people have the audacity to come and ask her if she is expecting a child. She wrote, "While I was like, ‘Am I supposed to be or am I even supposed to answer that question or should I work more on my belly, and towards the end of it, that shame would make me indulge more, making it a vicious cycle!"
In the end, she asked everyone to be supportive of each other. "But let’s atleast hold each other’s hands and try! Let’s uplift each other! A few stretch marks and a changed belly does not change our soul! Let’s learn to love ourselves We have all been victims and culprits of shame! Let go of this stigma! Let in the love! I am listening, if you wish to share anything! Sharing is therapy to our heart!" she ended.
