Exclusive: ‘Yeh Ladki Pagal Hai’ Ep 12: Tahira Kashyap Gives A Reality Check On How Mothers Are Expected To Be ‘Holier Than Thou’

As soon as a woman embraces motherhood, she is suddenly expected to become a multi-handed and multi-tasker human being. She is obviously expected to know how to cook, clean, and do other household chores along with taking care of her baby as well. Along that line, people often forget that a woman, too, can reach her limit at the end of the day. Talking about her own experience of becoming a mother, author-director Tahira Kashyap, in a candid with Yeh Ladki Pagal Hai show’s host Pavni Mehrotra, has opened up about how she fumbled a couple of times, too, from her responsibility as a mom.

In the recent episode, Pavni asked Tahira how is it like to be a mother, and the latter responded d by saying, “There are incidents when women are expected to be holier than thou and perfect images of who you are.” Recalling a couple of incidents when she slipped a couple of times from her duties and responsibilities as a mother, Tahira said that she went to have dinner in a fancy restaurant with her children once. While leaving, she picked up her designer bag and left. But when the servers called out from behind her, she realised that she had forgotten her baby!

She said that even she does not know how she forgot her baby and had also gotten trolled for the same as well. Tahira further said, “I love my children to bits. But I am only human, yaar!” In another incident as recalled by Tahira, she said that she dropped her kids off to school on a holiday that, too, full dressed in a uniform!

Lastly, she spoke about how women are raised with the thought process that they are supposed to skip a morsel of their food to feed their babies but she does not believe in this ideology. Instead, she says that mothers need to be well fed, too!

I think Tahira Kashyap gave a reality check about the pressure mothers are constantly under! And during such times, things can happen but that does not mean that those women are bad mothers. Sometimes, pressure takes a toll and it is humane to forget things! Tahira has always been candid about things that are often considered very ‘haww’ and ‘hush-hush’ to talk about, and we love her for it!
