Veteran actress Zeenat Aman, who has been very creative with her Instagram account since her debut on the social media platform in February has now spoken about older women being seen less in public eye. She also related tales of the exceptional older women who had helped her throughout her journey.
Zeenat Aman lauds the older women in her life; says, “Older women mould, protect and nurture us in so many ways worthy of celebration”
On Thursday, Zeenat took to Instagram and posted a picture of herself along with a long message where she spoke about the importance of “older women” in life. Sharing the picture, she wrote in caption, “We see very few older women in the public eye. It’s not something I thought about when I was young, but now that I myself am silver-haired, I feel their absence. It’s a puzzling phenomenon, simply because older women mould, protect and nurture us in so many ways worthy of celebration. There is just no substitute for the wisdom of experience and years.”
Expressing her gratitude towards the people in her life, she wrote, “My entire life I have known older women who have anchored me. My mother, yes, but others too. My friend Khadija whose generosity towards me was unsurpassed and who, being widowed young, displayed an inner steel that inspired me. My dear, ever-patient Sartaj, who is always there to make me laugh, but who was also by my side during days of intense grief. Kavi, who is steadfast as a rock and cradles our friendship even when I am neglectful. My stepmother Shamim aunty, who doted on my sons and to whom I could entrust them no matter the hour… How different and colourless life would have been without their influence.”
“When you sweep your eyes across the landscape of your life, do you not also find the influence of older women? I would be interested to know your stories. Stories of how a mother or aunt or grandmother or sister or woman friend carried you in your time of hesitance or need. If you don’t have a story to share, then maybe this post can serve as a reminder to drop a ♥️ to an older woman who enriches your life,” Zeenat concluded.
