Despite Injury, Asin particular about keeping her commitment!
The swelling in her leg cramped her plans to walk the ramp at a film award ceremony that was to take place a few days later.
The spunky South Indian lass was particular about keeping her commitment though. So she went limping to the event alone, and hid it so well that no one knew the pain she was going through. Adding to her pain is the fact that Asin takes no allopathic medicines.
"Yes, that's true," admits Asin from her new spacious home in Green Acres Andheri. "It's not just about the martial arts training. I've been brought up in an atmosphere where we don't use artificial foods, sweeteners, spices, etc. In our home, sugar is called 'white poison'. We use only gur. I don't take aerated drinks, chocolates, and junk food. And yes, no allopathic medicines. Only Ayurveda."
Limping, though not showing it, Asin is back in Mumbai now. And instead of heading straight to her parents' home, Papa's little girl, now suddenly all grown up, headed straight to her new home where she's nursing her leg and recovering in isolation.
Laughs Asin, "Why does that surprise you so much? Everyone presumed I couldn't take a step without my father just because he accompanied me everywhere. But even though I was the only child, I was always taught to be self-sufficient and independent."
Hence, although her parents live a stone's throw away from her in Mumbai Asin doesn't keep turning them for help or comfort.
She said, "They live just two kms away. But they don't come here at all. And I visit them once in a while. I'm in this spacious house all alone. Even the domestic help comes only during the day. But I'm not feeling sorry for myself. I am enjoying my enforced time at home. I'm making new friends, learning to be independent."
