Priya Anand turns poetic and philosophical

Priya Anand, a good combo of brain and beauty, celebrated her birthday on Thursday and thanked everyone who has wished her.

“Anyone who knows me knows that I am not the one to celebrate birthdays! But I can’t help but wake up feeling grateful for all that life has given and taught me over the years,” the English Vinglish actress said.

According to the Vanakkam Chennai and Vamanan actress, “Especially since Covid-19, there are people, places and things for which I have a newfound or renewed appreciation for.

Every passing year has brought me closer to expressing my whole and healed self! I’ve learnt that the hardest things you will ever have to do in your life is to forgive someone who never apologized.

You don’t need to do this for them; you do this for yourself. Hold on to your values that you so uniquely possess. Don’t be afraid to say the truth that you carry in your heart like a hidden treasure!”

Sharing an excerpt from a poem, she said: “An excerpt from the poem ‘Myself’ reminds me of one of the many wonderful things I’ve learnt from my Mother that has shaped who I am today.

I cannot hide myself from me; I can see what others can never see;
I know what others can never know,
I cannot fool myself, and so
Whatever happens, I want to be
self-respecting and conscience free.
– Edgar A. Guest.”
