4 Timeless Lessons from Single and Happy Sushmita Sen

One of the most beautiful women in the Universe has found her happily-ever-after with her two wonderful daughters. Whether it is her acting career or personal life, Sushmita Sen, is someone who has always broken away from the conformists' mould and tried to do something different. She is an independent woman, who does not shy away from expressing her views on anything and everything. And yes, this gorgeous mother is blissfully single! As Sushmita turns 37 today, we wish her Happy Birthday and take a look at what life lessons one can learn from her.

Being a single and happy parent

You don’t need to be married to feel the joys of being a mother, and this is something that Sushmita truly believes in. In 2000, Sushmita was 25 years-old and was winning awards and praises for her supporting role in Biwi No. 1; the world was her oyster. Yet she did something that no other Indian actress would dare to do; she adopted a baby girl named Renée. Sushmita chose to take over the responsibilities of motherhood, along with her acting career.

Ten years later, Sushmita repeated history by adopting a second child. When the court granted her the custody, she came out with a charming smile and said, “I am feeling on top of the world. I have named her Alisah, which in Greek means joyful. She is a very happy child. She will win you over in one minute.”

Sush’s Mantra: Love your child unconditionally. As a mother it should never matter to you if your child comes out of your womb or your heart.

Become a complete powerhouse

Single parents have to deal with tough questions. The most common one, ‘where is my daddy/mummy?’ Sushmita too faced her fair share of such questions from her kids. One day when Renée came back from school, she asked about her father. Sushmita just smiled and pointed to a Shivling (a representation of Lord Shiva) and told her that was her father. The way she has handled all their questions has ensured that her children clearly understood the responsibilities of a single parent and also respected that. Now, Renée knows that her single mother will choose a father for them, someday, but not without her daughters' approval.

Sush’s Mantra: Being a single parent can be really tough, but it is not impossible. Best way to handle your kid’s innocent questions is to be truthful to them and you will definitely earn their respect.

Learn to pamper yourself

When Sushmita was seen sporting a solitaire, the rumour mills started speculating about a possible engagement. But Sushmita clarified that she had bought the 22 carat solitaire for herself. Sushmita said, “I don't need a man in my life to have diamonds. I can own them myself.” So, just like her you too don’t need a man to take care of you or to buy you nice things. Being a single parent you will truly begin to understand what love is actually all about.

Sush’s Mantra: Be independent, be proud and never hesitate to pamper yourself.

Nothing wrong in waiting for Mr. Right!

Many single women often jump into marriage once they cross the wrong side of 20. Some fear the idea of remaining single for life, while others fear social compulsions; and they get into the institution of marriage for all the wrong reasons. However, Sushmita believes, “It (marriage) is a celebration of choice.” So, no women should suppress her true feelings and get married out of desperation.

Sush’s Mantra: Stay true to yourself and to your heart, and never give up on finding your Mr. Right!
