‘I am not a slave to my phone’

Actress Gul Panag, who loves using technology, says that people should not allow it to take over their life.

“I adopted technology way before others...my dependency on smart phones is much higher than other people...And I feel that if technology can make life easier, then one must adopt it. However, one must not allow it to take over his or her life...” she said.

“There is a fine distinction between making your life easier and having your life taken over and becoming a slave... I am not a slave to my phone,” she added.

‘All I knew was that I had to mentally prepare to fight it (cancer) and I got a huge support from my family. After my chemotherapy, I lost my hair, eye brows and lashes. Looking at the mirror... I felt like an alien. Though I wanted to get back to work, I was nourishing my body and focussing on my health.’

The 38-year-old, who also has two adopted daughters, Naleigh and Adalaide with her husband Josh Kelley, has been trying to balance her professional responsibilities with the challenges of being a new mother.

“Trying to pump or breastfeed between interviews (has) been really interesting. It's a whole new world for me. It's really awkward, honestly. (But what's) best for the baby is best for the mom,” Heigl added.
