The idea was almost preposterous. An almost bald head, barely any make-up and a huge scar was not the norm for @vogue. But, I guess that's my new normal. Of course I had my reservations, and, if I dare say, insecurities – but a candid conversation with the lovely ladies @priya_tanna and @anaitashroffadajania cleared my doubts. And before I knew it, I was standing in front of the camera, ready to uncover my new reality. The icing on the cake was the fact that I needed one-third of the time for hair and make-up😄. So I closed my eyes and jumped into it, full throttle, and this is the result. Thank you, @meghamahindru for telling my story; and thank you @ridburman for understanding my story and saying it so beautifully through your lens. If there's a piece of advice I can give you all after this, it would be to 'Find your new normal'. It's very liberating.

Guys, please welcome the newest member on the book club: #LilMissIcy😄! I'm pretty sure that the love for reading has rubbed off on her too, because she joined me in reading our book this month, ‘Jet Lag’ by Ann Birstein. We finished the book in one go and for me, it was as intriguing as reading it for the first time. Important subject; intelligent writing. Have you guys finished reading it? #SBCBookDiscussion
Sonali is also showing her scar, there is nothing to hide. A scar is symbol that cancer did not win. Sonali admitted that she had no plan to do a photo shoot at this stage of her life. She is just happy to feel healthy again, but when a women’ magazine asked her to do a bold shoot she could not say no, as the concept won her over.
Sonali is looking more beautiful than ever. Her photo shoot will inspire millions of young cancer survivors with scars, there is nothing to hide, and it is sign of victory.
We salute Sonali for her attitude towards life.
