On World Cancer Day, Tahira has recited a poem for all those who are battling with cancer and for the survivors as well. She recited, “Some scars are deep, some within. Some are seen, while some are hidden. The thing about scars is, it reminds you of the past, the moments of suffering that you thought would forever last.”
“The fight with cancer is not just physical but also mental, some battles are more tough to conquer especially if they're internal. But hear me again, we all have that fighter which has the universe's might. The indomitable spirit that can't be crushed by any fright,” Tahira Kashyap further mentioned.
