Actress Sonali Bendre was in Chandigarh on Thursday, (December 3) as part of her promotions for her newly released book 'The Modern Gurukul'. She met with fans and signed autographs.

The mother to 10-year-old Ranveer and wife of filmmaker Goldie Behl, Sonali spoke about her book with mothers. She said: “There was no social media when Twinkle, Shilpa and I were acting. It was all about interviews and glamour. Back then it was okay, but now, we want the world to see another side of us." (Source: Express Photo by Kamleshwar Singh)

Sonali Bendre kept her make-up simple - kohl, lipstick and a smile. In Chandigarh to promote her book, Sonali interacted with the media and students at Tiny Feet Little Giant Leaps School, Sector 8, in a session moderated by Shiraz Saini. The actress talked at length about her journey, from mothering to motherhood, and how one should not assume that this book makes her an expert on parenting or children.

Sonali discussed her book, The Modern Gurukul at the event. She said: “I am an expert on my son only,” she said. Penned in six months, the book comprises notes of wisdom, nuggets of knowledge and tips on being a parent collected over the years, in her memory scribbled as forget-me-nots at the back of grocery to-do lists.

Sonali signs copies of her books for fans. “Getting married and having children is an evolution process. A live social experiment no one is documenting. All we have is the knowledge passed on to us by our elders, experiences we inculcate and hardly negate. But to bridge the generation gap, one needs to adapt to the new while retaining the goodness of the old,” said Sonali, balancing the modern and traditional way in her book, combining the vedic way of bringing up children and adapting to the smartphone generation. So, we make sure Ranveer has to understand the value of everything, earn it, respect it." (Source: Express Photo by Kamleshwar Singh)
