This photoshoot of a bride with cancer is inspiring everyone to be real and to be confident in their skin. She is encouraging women to break the stereotypes and to embrace themselves. Be BOLD and BEAUTIFUL!
Once again the social media and the internet have shown their power of spreading messages to the entire world. A few days back, a man from Arizona posted the before (a picture with the littered area) and after (a picture with a clean ground with nine trash bag) picture on social media and challenged everyone to participate in the #TrashTagChallenge. The picture went viral, and thousands of people from across the globe accepted the challenge and contributed to the environment.
This time, social media is inspiring the individuals and especially the women to realize how bold and beautiful they are. Do you want to know how? Read below.
How would I look as a bride is a question that most women ask themselves? When people look out for the best wedding cards and extraordinary things to make a wedding memorable to guests as well, here is a lady whose bridal photoshoot became an inspiration to many.
Vaishnavi Poovanedran or Navi Indran Pillai, a breast cancer survivor’s photo-shoot took the social media by storm after she posted her bridal pictures on the internet. A Malaysian of Indian descent spoke how cancer today has affected many women lives and how they avoid being photographed (due to baldness).
She wrote in one of her posts -
“Cancer treatments have given us a lot of limitations, robbed us of beauty and taken away our confidence. As little girls, we have always dreamt of what our big day will be like and how we would look like as a bride.”
She further wrote -
“But having cancer has stripped some of us from fulfilling these dreams. A lot of cancer survivors have postponed or even cancelled their big day.”

Cancer treatments has given us alot of limitations, has robbed us from beauty and taken away our confidence. As a little girl, we have always dreamt of what our big day will be like and how we would look as a bride. But having cancer has stripped some of us from fulfilling these dreams. Alot of cancer survivors has postponed or even cancelled their big day. For me, as a cancer survivor, I dreamt the day I marry the love of my life. Dreamt, what it is like to look like a bride, to feel like a bride. Having gone through cancer treatments (chemotherapy, etc.), losing my hair was by far the hardest thing I ever had to go through. I felt that I was not beautiful enough to be loved and was not beautiful enough to look or ever feel like a bride. Hair, it is our 'crowning glory' and having that taken away from you is devastating. But we choose to accept what we have, appreciate what we are and welcome what is coming. So here it is, *Bold Indian Bride* ****************************************************** Bangles & Bridal Anklet : @desirec.my Silk Saree & Bridal Veil : @pattushastra Photography: @celesgrd Assisted by: @shi.vaa90 Make-up & Styling : @blushbeautybeyond Assisted by : @emmanuel_ravi98 Henna: @bdazzled_beauty #kissedbycancer #cancersucks #cancersurvivor #youngadultcancer #letsfcancer ** A huge thank you to the team. You guys made my dream come true. Not only I looked like a bride, I felt like a bride and it was all thanks to the wonderful team for bringing it to life. I am so grateful to have met such wonderful people. I am extremely blessed for the amount of love and support I have received. Scrolling through the pictures, tears rolled down because I got to have my dream come true and it is because you guys made it happen for me. I am extremely grateful. Thank you all so much. Lots of love, Navi
Diseases like fever and typhoid can be treated, but cancer not only shatters the person but also gives immense pain in the treatments that are followed. You will be inspired by Vaishnavi, even more, when you will know that she has fought with cancer twice.
She was diagnosed with third stage breast cancer when she was only 22 (in 2013). But after several sessions of chemotherapy, she was declared cancer-free in 2015. Unfortunately, in 2018, she was again diagnosed with cancer.

Nothing can stop me.. Nope NOTHING! Not even CANCER.. ???? . . . . . ????: @shi.vaa90 @celesgrd MUA: @blushbeautybeyond @emmanuel_ravi98 Accesories: @desirec.my Outfit:@pattushastra Henna: @bdazzled_beauty #kissedbycancer #cancersurvivor #cancersucks #youngadultcancer #letsfcancer
Just like any other girl, she also dreamt of dressing up as a bride, marrying her love, and how she would feel on her D-day. Unfortunately, she diagnosed with cancer, and chemotherapy and several treatments made her bald. She was depressed but did the photo shoot to let every woman know that no matter what you are going through, you are beautiful.
Instead of feeling sorry and depressed, she became an inspiration to all those diagnosed with cancer and other severe diseases.
She said -
"For me, as a cancer survivor, I dreamt the day I marry the love of my life. Dreamt, what it is like to look like a bride, to feel like a bride. Having gone through cancer treatments (chemotherapy, etc.), losing my hair was by far the hardest thing I ever had to go through. I felt that I was not beautiful."
She also urged people to let go of negativity and to fight through difficult situations in life.
“There will be haters and doubters and then there will be you proving them wrong."
Vaishnavi in red and bottle green saree with bridal baubles looks gorgeous. The bold lips and a mathapatti on her scarcely-haired head is giving a new definition to a bridal looks. She completed her bridal look with Mehendi and red bindi. We are smitten with her confidence and grace, are you?

Portrait tips, just say something silly to crack them up, or maybe my models just naturally hear my voice and start laughing, not sure which is which. I love portraits with the dead stare, as much as I love portraits with laughter! . . @naviindranpillai told me her idea was to portray herself as a bride, but has got loads of complications to deal with, and this bride is going to be an example, that life still can go on if you put your heart to it. This bride, made the whole concept effortless for me! . . .

From Gaia to Kali; every goddess in mythologies have a prominent role to create or restore the balance in nature and the universe.
This list showcases the Gods of death, the Underworld, and destruction: from the Egyptian God of Death- Anubis, who was recognized as a man with a jackal head, to the Hindu God of Death- “Yama,” who took the records of each person’s death. But Thanatos was the personified spirit of non-violent death.
No wonder, the God of healing and magical tradition allied to it, never failed to surprise people especially in ancient times. Let’s discover some of God and Goddess of healing and their amazing contribution.
