Remember, the ‘little heroes’ are also dealing with the new reality of the pandemic, says Mira Rajput
Like all other Bollywood couples, Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor and their two children are spending lockdown time indoors. While Shahid has been wowing his wife with exceptional culinary skills, Mira recently took to Instagram to share a heartfelt note for all the kids out there, urging parents to take care of their children.
Mira noted that everyone gets applause, except for children. “These little heroes have stayed indoors more than they’ve ever known in their lives. Their world has literally been turned upside down. All the things they love like sports, being with friends, going to school, or just being kids have all been taken away from them. Adults talking about others becoming unwell, news reporting death after death. Our poor children’s minds must be racing. So here’s to our little heroes: today, tomorrow, forever”, she wrote. Mira prefaced the note with these words: “Love them. Hug them. Ask them how they feel and let them cry if they’re not okay. Kiss them. Paint with them, let their clothes get dirty... Watch their favourite cartoon with them. Snuggle up with them. And when you’re tired after doing the dishes and cooking dinner and they say, ‘Mumma, can you play with me,’ remember this time isn’t forever. Love them.”
