Becoming who we are is an ever-evolving process, and thank God – because where’s the joy in waking up one day and deciding there’s nowhere left to go? That’s the thought that ran through my mind during my telephone interview with actor, philanthropist, and doting mom, Neha Dhupia. When I decided to think out loud, she agreed. “That’s something I’ve come to realise along the way. I’m not going to lie, as a younger woman, I frequently worried about what I wasn’t achieving enough of, or if I was straying too far from what I thought was the prescribed path. What I hope my daughter (Mehr Dhupia Bedi) will realise a little earlier is that there is no prescribed path, that it’s fine to swerve, and that the confidence she needs to recognise will come with time,” she says, filling me in on how her perspective on life has changed in 2020.

In true #nofilter style,Dhupia eulogises the need for personal growth, especially after the events that have transpired. “It would be difficult to not experience even an iota of change. I’ve truly cherished this time with my family and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life. Even at my age, I felt the pressure to pack my life full of activity and maximise my time by doing all I can. All this busyness has overloaded our minds. I would often walk around with this nagging sense that there’s something I’ve forgotten to do. There was just no rest; no sense of completion. I truly believe that life is now more about living in the now and cherishing it for what it’s worth,” she says.
