Being a woman myself, it was not my intention to hurt other women. In fact, I have expressed myself extensively time and again in support of us and what it is like to be a woman. I am grateful to all of you for reaching out to me personally with appreciation or criticism. Hope we will be able to have a more open exchange of ideas.”

“In my capacity I am trying to think, support and share warmth not only with women, but with the entire human race. It will be stronger only when we women, with our weaknesses and wisdom, stand together as fair and capable beings. Shine in. If we’re inclusive. And empathetic, we’ll be able to create a healthier, happier place to live,” she continued.

She also added, “Having said this, if inadvertently, I may have caused pain, I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart. I do not seek limelight nor do I want to be the center of sensational situations.” I am a staunch optimist and I strongly believe that life is indeed beautiful. Thank you for your patience and support. I have learned a lot from this incident.”
