People will object to my point, but physical attraction is also very important in a relationship. In our time we could not experiment, but today’s generation does and why not? Because if there is no physical connection then the relationship is not going to last very long. I think you should marry your best friend. You should tell him that maybe I want to have a baby with you because I like you, so come on, let’s get married because that’s what society says. By the way, Navya, I have no problem if you have a child even without marriage. Recently, this statement of Veteran actress and Rajya Sabha member Jaya Bachchan was widely discussed, in which she was seen supporting her granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda for having a child even without marriage. Jaya Bachchan said this in Navya’s own podcast What the Hell Navya, where Navya along with her mother Shweta Bachchan and grandmother Jaya Bachchan discussed various topics like women’s health, financial freedom, love, relationship, friendship, social media, parenting. Does This podcast of Navya is getting a lot of headlines these days.
Well, apart from this podcast, Navya is also garnering a lot of accolades for her amazing career choice. Belonging to Bollywood’s famous film family, being the granddaughter of megastar Amitabh Bachchan, everyone thought that Navya, like all star kids, would also turn to acting. This path was also easy for her, but Navya made it clear that this dream of those who dream of becoming an actress will always remain unfulfilled. If she is to be known, then for a bigger work and she has also taken strong steps towards this big work. Navya, 25 years old, is a budding young entrepreneur today. She is the co-founder of Aara Health, a company working for women’s mental, menstrual and sexual health, and the founder of Project Naveli, an organization promoting gender equality.
Navya on campaign to eradicate period poverty
The special thing is that through these companies, Navya does not just want to fly to success herself, but her aim is to bring betterment in the society, to make women aware about their mental and menstrual health, to bridge the gap of non-equality by making them self-reliant. New York’s Fordham University graduate Navya’s company Aara Health is a women’s health care platform where taboo topics related to sexual health like menstruation, menopause, fertility are discussed openly. At the same time, essential health products for women are also provided.
don’t feel shy or embarrassed
Navya’s effort is that women can get correct information about their body here. Also, they should not feel any hesitation or embarrassment while talking about these topics. According to Navya, ‘When I was a teenager, my mother used to openly answer questions related to my sex. Still I felt I should seek medical information and went to the gynecologist and the experience was very uncomfortable. Then I realized that this is the condition of all Indian girls. Then again, I grew up in a family where these subjects were not considered taboo. I can even talk about periods in front of my maternal grandfather, but many girls don’t get such an environment. So, I along with three of my friends decided to start Aara Health in 2020 during the Covid pandemic. Today more than 60 thousand women are associated with us. My dream is to end period poverty in the country and period poverty does not just mean unavailability of period related products, but also lack of information and awareness about it. I want a time to come when every girl has access to sanitary pads. Let them realize that they are in charge of their own body.
stop treating periods or sex as a taboo
Navya says that the most important thing is that we stop considering topics related to periods or sex as taboo. Today many girls struggle with problems like PCOS, endometriosis, period cramps. That’s why it is important that we can talk openly on these topics with our friends and family. According to me, sex education should also be given to boys and girls in schools, so that it can be normalized. Along with this, companies making sanitary pads will also have to be responsible by stopping spreading misconceptions like period blood showing blue. Period is not something that one has to be ashamed of, rather it is a symbol of life. Similarly, Navya’s non-profit organization Project Naveli is trying to make women stand on their own feet, to help them become financially independent.
Beautiful woman can run business too
Nepotism is a very popular word in Bollywood. Most of the star kids follow the footsteps of their parents or family members and choose films as their career. In such a situation, there were speculations about Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and actress Jaya Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya that she too would follow the path of Bollywood. She is also often seen partying with young generation actresses Ananya Pandey, Shanaya Kapoor, Suhana Kapoor. Not only this, his brother Agastya has turned to Nanda’s acting. In such a situation, many people are expecting to see the beautiful Navya on the screen but Navya has no such intention. According to Navya, people forget that on one hand I do belong to a filmy family, but on the other hand my grandfather, Papa’s (Nikhil Nanda) family has been in the business for four generations. Not only this, in the past, when a fan commented on Navya’s picture that you are beautiful, you should also try in Bollywood, Navya’s blunt reply was, ‘Thank you for your kind words, but a beautiful woman can run a business too. Is.’ Well, before Navya, many other star kids have made careers other than films. These include Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor’s daughter and Ranbir Kapoor’s jewelery designer sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, Jackie Shroff’s daughter and Tiger Shroff’s sister Krishna Shroff who is a health and fitness expert and Navya’s mother Shweta Nanda herself.
