Shweta Bachchan Nanda turns writer

Friday, May 11, 2018

Actor Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter and mother of two teenagers Shweta Bachchan Nanda is facing the ‘Empty Nest Syndrome’. After years of bringing up her children, who have now gone to boarding school overseas, homemaker Shweta is facing the emptiness of having no one to look after, or so she writes in a recent issue of Vogue magazine. Empathising with other parents, most of whom have to face this depressive syndrome at some stage of their lives, Shweta writes on how she’s handling the loneliness in a constructive way. One of the outlets she’s turned to is writing, by becoming columnist for a newspaper. She also joined a games group, first rather reluctantly but is now an enthusiastic participant. And then there’s travel, this time without having to worry about the kids’ holiday timetables for the very first time. Now in her forties, for the first time Shweta says she’s discovering having a real relationship with her own parents without the conversation being about their grandkids all the time. Shweta writes sensitively, truthfully, and says that she’s facing her sense of loss of identity but is looking forward to gaining a new one. As Helen Keller once said: “When one door of happiness closes, another one opens. But often we look so often at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
