Twinkle Khanna shares pic with daughter Nitara, gets reflective about parenting: ‘This comes without instruction manuals’

Former actor, author Twinkle Khanna has shared a new picture with her daughter Nitara. She even got a little reflective and shared a wise thought on how ‘parenting’ is different from ‘being a parent’.

“Being a parent differs from parenting. Nouns are passive. It is enough to merely exist. Parenting, a verb, denotes an action, and this one comes without instruction manuals. Sometimes I wonder about the incongruity of needing a license to navigate a moped down the street, but no tests, no preparation, for steering these little creatures we produce down the right path,” she wrote with a picture of herself and Nitara. The photo showed Nitara in Twinkle’s lap, putting her finger on her mother’s mouth. The black-and-white photo looks warm and adorable.

Twinkle’s fans agreed with her tweet. “Parents are more or less same; the child is unique. This makes parenting, learn as you go exercise. The child is the manual, if parents can read,” wrote one follower. “Oh man ! I wish the parenting part came with a disclaimer atleast – sleepless night for the rest of ones life,” wrote another. However, another fan joked that Twinkle’s words are a little difficult to understand sometimes. “Mam mujhe app ki tweet kabhi samajh nahi ata (Ma’am I never understand your tweets),” read a comment.

While she never shares Nitara’s face on her social media, Twinkle frequently shares photos with her on Instagram and Twitter. Recently she shared a post of herself, son Aarav and Nitara lying on the grass in their backyard. However, the photos changed tone quickly as Aarav and Nitara broke into a fight.

“Being a mom involves quick transitions-it’s a matter of seconds before you go from lazing peacefully on the grass into the midst of a war zone! #MamaMiaHereWeGoAgain,” she wrote with her post.

Twinkle worked in movies for almost a decade before quitting it for good and dedicating her time to writing. Her books–Mrs Funnybones and The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad– were both bestsellers. She has also produced PadMan starring husband Akshay Kumar.
