New Delhi: Twinkle Khanna, formerly known for her illustrious acting career, transitioned into a full-time writer, captivating audiences with her incisive wit under the pseudonym “Mrs. Funnybones.” While her writing prowess has garnered acclaim, she embarked on an academic journey that has now culminated in the successful completion of her master’s degree from the esteemed University of London.
Twinkle Khanna, Actress-Turned-Writer, Earns Her Master’s Degree in Arts
The accomplished writer made headlines last year when she enrolled in the Fiction Writing master’s program at the University of London. Recently, she took to Instagram to share a celebratory reel, her radiant smile reflecting the sense of accomplishment that came with her academic feat.
In a heartfelt caption, she recounted her year-long academic adventure, stating, “A year of reading, analyzing, figuring out what even eighth graders know these days, how to do citations, dealing with assignments and submissions, and finally, by handing in my dissertation, it all comes to an end. I thought that handing in my final dissertation would be like breaking out of an academic escape room. But instead of celebrating, I am feeling lost because something that has been such a large part of my life for an entire year is now over.”
Khanna’s journey was not without its challenges. She revealed, “For younger students, their parents organize logistics. For people at my stage, we are the organizers. I applied to five universities, got rejected by one, but got my first choice. Then, I had to do the tough bits: getting my daughter to move, not just schools but countries; arranging my work in a way that I can manage virtually and fly down repeatedly; working on my book, finding a place to live, doctors, plumbers, delivery apps, and making friends in a new city. It’s all been overwhelming sometimes. The most important lesson I learned this year? Age is not a division sum where we are reduced to a fraction of what we were. It is a multiplier if we choose to keep growing in every way and not just horizontally.”
The heartfelt post concluded with Khanna, ever the engaging writer, opening the floor to her fans, asking, “Agree? Disagree?”
