Pratyusha Banerjee's emotional mother makes startling revelations on her first death anniversary!

Soma Banerjee also denied that Pratyusha was in a live-in relationship with Rahul.

Hard-to-believe but true. It was actress Pratyusha Banerjee's first death anniversary on Saturday and the popular Balika Badhu actor's mother couldn't stop herself from getting emotional and dejected that she had to see her young girl's dead body by her own eyes.

“No one has an idea of the pain a mother goes through, my daughter whom I brought back home as a baby, and later as a body... a dead body from the hospital... how will I live my life with this memory? How? Who will call me ‘Ma’?," she told reporters at the prayer ceremony.

While speaking about her daughter, Soma Banerjee also made some startling revelations about Rahul Singh, Pratyusha's boyfriend.

“Who is Rahul to Pratyusha? What was his relationship with my late daughter? They were not in a live-in relationship. After coming to Mumbai, my daughter was not in a live-in relationship, Rahul was staying with us. He conspired, separates our daughter from us, and then started staying at her place, calling it a live-in relation. He conspired, created pressure on my daughter and killed her,” she said while interacting with the media.

Pratyusha's mother Soma Banerjee ended her note by making a very important point on why women should be strong enough to take care of themselves.

"On this eve of Navratri, I just want to say that girls come to their parents’ house, but my daughter will never be able to come. I just want to request all men out there to stop harassing women. And ask women to be strong," she added.

Raising strong, fearless girls...

In today's day and age, it is extremely important that all women are self-dependent and more importantly strong to live a life of their own. This is something we should be teaching our daughters as well, if we want to raise them into confident and fearless young women and we should start it early on in life.

Little girls should know that life is much more than just stories of Cinderella and her prince charming, who rescues and saves her life and that have a message that every woman needs a man to save her.

Young girls should be moulded right from the beginning to have a solid career of their own before they choose to get married or "settle down". They should be prepared to face the big bad world on their own and make decisions and choices as confident young women.

They should also know that fending for the bread and butter is not only the male's prerogative and that girls are equally responsible for contributing to a family's earnings. Lastly, they should know that strong women fight it out and do not give in to pressure and take a step that they, or their near and dear ones, will regret for life.
