Manisha Koirala is one of the few people on earth who have conquered cancer. The actress was suffering from ovarian cancer and she spent over six months in treatment for it in New York. She returned to India recently.
She said people reveal their true colors in tough times and her cancer was an eye-opener for her. @Tough times… few whom I considered family said, ‘Oh, she is going to pop any minute, she is too critical, prayers won’t help’…and those who said, ‘May lord give her my time too, nothing will happen she will survive longer than most. I’m thankful to such tough days to make my eyes wide open,” the 43-year-old posted on her Facebook page.
She added that she now believes that the quality of the life lived and the quality of the people you surround yourself with is what matters the most. “Whether I live long or short is not the question, what quality that I surrounded myself is! And only in difficult times people reveal their true essence. People of both kinds are necessary to realise the difference among them,” said the 43 year old actress who is doing her bit for cancer awareness by speaking about it at various events.
She plans to return to films this year end.
