“Physically I have kind of grown, got more pounds and increased my weight, which I am totally comfortable about right now.
“[But] I was bullied for gaining weight.”

She added that it was both “uncomfortable and really surprising” that people had such strong opinions about her body. Despite her positive outlook, the harsh backlash has been enough to drive her to tears.
“It’s not about how you look, it’s about who you are inside and how you treat people and what you believe in.
“I definitely broke down so many times.
“Sometimes in the most unexpected times. I’m just about to go on stage or something and this whole thing comes in my mind. It’s really sad.”
Following her being crowned Miss Universe, the Bollywood actress said she spent more time with family and less time focused on food and exercise.
“I’ve gone through that phase of my life where I used to feel bad about everything.
“Now, I started loving everything. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to feel sad.”
By sharing her story, Sandhu said she hopes that others will learn to embrace their changing bodies as well. “We all are imperfect,” she said, adding that people need to “embrace” their flaws.
Back in December, Sandhu was crowned as the most beautiful woman in the world, which she later described as “overwhelmed because it’s been 21 years since India got Miss Universe crown — and it’s happening right now.”

“If you think I am wrong. Fine.”
Several weeks ago, Mary Remmy Njoku posited that she will like to still be a Nigerian if life is giving her another chance.

Why I’m Being Misunderstood – Burna Boy
Nigerian singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, has said that he is mostly misunderstood due to his reserved nature.
Burna said his personality keeps being misunderstood by many because he chose not to let people know much about his personality.
He said this in a recent interview with international media outlet Dazed, on a visit to the Caribbean Island.
“I tend to be misunderstood and the reason is that I have never really given anyone a chance to know who I am, and that’s what I tried to do,” said Burna Boy.
He, however, noted that his recent album Love, Damini offers a more graceful window into his mind.
“I tried to use this album to allow people to get closer to me”, he said.
The Grammy award winner also shared his take on End Sars.
He said: “My thoughts don’t matter on SARS. I’m not going to encourage young people to lose their lives anymore. When something is ready to happen, it will happen. With understanding comes readiness for action.”
