Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai gain criticism on not losing weight.

No doubt, Aishwarya Rai is considered as one of the most beautiful faces in Bollywood.  Before she became a successful film actress, she works as a model and eventually won the title of Ms. World in 1994.  She was married to fellow actor Abhishek Bachchan and she just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl  last November, 2011.  Having considered as an icon in the Indian movies and television, many criticized and  was dismayed on her post-baby weight. Her picture drew debates on how an actress especially an icon should shed their extra pound after giving birth.

Aishwarya Rai - before

Giving birth to two children, i know the feeling of dismayed and frustration on not getting back to your old figure especially if the length of time to do so has already long elapsed.  Study shows and even doctors says that there is a recuperation period of atleast three (3) months to go back to your ordinary routine (that’s include shedding off your extra fats , pregnancy fats) but given the fact that your a superstar, the extra pressure was always there.  (Ooh, just imagine Beyonce , flaunting her beautiful body barely at two months of giving birth)

During pregnancy, it is very natural for a mother to gain weight (after all you and your baby needs that weight) considering some factors that affects your pregnancy.

Although, Aishwarya Rai comment on the supposed criticism that she is still enjoying her motherhood , she also said that she has a duty to her follower (fans) to be back on her pre-pregnancy weight and body.  For many, losing weight after pregnancy is a very easy task but  just because you haven’t lose your extra weight after a year means your less beautiful.  (i’m not depending myself here) but I believe the true beauty is the fact that your a mother now and motherhood is not just all about your body.

Rai in Cannes 2012 (image via web)

Here’s the recent picture of Rai on the Cannes where she attended the AmfAR Cinema Against Aids gala alongside Hollywood favorites, Janet Jackson, Alec Baldwin,  Kylie Minogue, Gerard Butler and Kim Kardashian.

Rai  poses a more slimmer than her previous post baby picture.  (this is just to show that she seriously take the idea of getting back to her beautiful body because of crowd pressure and I guess the fact that many look up at  and idolized her.  Although, she still looks a little heavier, her face is definitely more thinner.

Browsing the net, I saw this beautiful Nautical Nostalgia Dress and I instantly fell in love with it’s very simple but elegant design.  You can wear this dress whenever and wherever you wish to go.  It can be worn during day time and will be great during night time event combined with a piece of beautiful accessories.

Summer Fling

Summer is about to end.  What have you done to make this summer a truly wonderful season to remember?  Honestly, i wished i get the chance to visit the beach and enjoy the sand on my feet but things are very hectic this days and we were not able to fit it with our busy schedules.

I have been dreaming of going to a sunflower farm near our province but our house help suddenly told us that they were going home and no intention of coming back.  So, we have to cancel all our plans and maybe wait for another time to fulfill them.
How, I wish that our lives would be back to normal again and we might be able to breathe more easily without thinking of problems and so on.
