It is a rare image to see in our world of body perfection, but an important one and conveys a different form of beauty that might make people uncomfortable, but it where many of us are heading, whether we want to accept it or not. Sanchita sees a beauty in this form that equals the beauty of a young slender woman. What is the perfect body anyway? The body that can give birth to four children is surely beautiful?
