Every mother-daughter relationship is unique in itself. It’s a precious friendship and an unmatchable love that cannot be quite defined or quantified. The same holds true for the brilliant math genius Shakuntala Devi, who was not only a mathematical prodigy but also an affectionate mother. As we gear up for the exciting premiere of her biopic, Vidya Balan, who essays the role of the math wizard, dedicates a heartfelt poem to all the daughters of India ahead of the film’s release. World-over as women come together to support and empower each other, this video is a humble tribute to the first and possibly most important relationship that a woman has – that with her mother. The formative relationship that is the foundation of life.
Shot in beautiful monochrome, Vidya beautifully narrates how every mother was once a daughter too. The recital also looks at empowering every girl to be fearless, break all glass ceilings and most importantly believe in themselves to achieve what they dream of.

Be kind, be nice, they say. But you know what? So does support, so does empowerment! Look at the women around you – your daughters, sisters, friends, colleagues, acquaintances, the one you meet on the street, remind them every single day that they are stronger than they’ve been told. Lift them up. We’re surrounded by the most extraordinary women every single day who need our support. A little nudge that reminds them if there’s a fight, they have an army standing right behind them. Thank you, @kareenakapoorkhan for nominating me as part of the #WomenSupportWomen challenge. I urge every woman of India to join the movement, empower and be empowered and most importantly – start here, start at home, start now and take on the whole world because women can! #WomenSupportWomen Poem written by : @cacklerraj ❣️
