Mandira Bedi and her husband Raj Kaushal have adopted a girl, who they have named Tara, and took to their social media handle to introduce her to the world. Mandira is very happy that her family is finally complete and says that she always wanted to adopt a child. "Many years back, we had decided that we would have one biological child and adopt the other. We have always wanted to bring a daughter into our lives, and Tara is a fulfilment of that dream," she told a leading tabloid.
Telling how they met Tara, Mandira said, "We did a few video calls before meeting her, and she kept asking us, ‘When are you coming?' Today, Tara is very happy and has settled in. She is naughty, fun and absolutely comfortable." She also revealed that they brought Tara through a private jet. "Raj went to Jabalpur first, while Vir and I took a private jet the next day. By the time we reached, he had completed all the legal formalities. We fetched them at the airport and flew back. When she came to us, she didn't know the concept of colours. Now, she knows colours and English alphabets, can count up to 50 and write from 1 to 20. I don't think it makes sense to enrol her in a school now, as the classes are online. We are teaching her the basics at home, and she will start going to school whenever it reopens."
