Mumbai: Recently, Twinkle Khanna posted a screenshot of a message from one of her fans which shared how Twinkle’s book Mrs Funnybones helped her when she found out that she had last stage terminal cancer. While sharing the post, Twinkle shared how every woman is fearless and that pain does not frighten mothers. In the heartfelt message, Twinkle thanked her fan for sharing her story.
The post’s caption read, “Words are powerful creatures. They are bridges. They are conduits. They are sanctuaries. Mine gave a stranger joy, hers moved me deeply. I wrote back to her this morning and as odd as it seems, I was crying. For someone, I don’t know and perhaps for all the people I have lost. I read her note and a tiny word stood out. Kids. Pain doesn’t frighten mothers, our bodies have been ripped in half before, it is the thought of the pain that our children will feel because of our absence that smashes us to bits. I wish this brave woman and her children all the strength in the world.”
After seeing the post, her fans rushed to show their support for both of the women and one of her followers commented, “Love you Twinkle, I have not read any of your books. But just reading your comment below makes me want to read your book. funny bones, I will get my copy soon.” Another follower commented, “And you both made me cry ..strength and power to her.” While others spammed the post with heart and smile emojis.
