To start this #femmemarchfest and #womenshistorymonth
I would like to introduce y’all to Aisha Chaudhary and her book My Little Epiphanies .
“zindagi badi honi chahiye,lambi nahi”
Sometimes you read a book or read about a person and it tears you up from inside not because you are sad because you don’t know what to feel, to feel sad would be an insult to the person who stand so tall that I feel like I’m in no position to feel sad for her, I feel rather feel sad for my self and just wonder how some people manage to stay positive with so much going on while I get pissed if I don’t get tea on time.
Aisha Chaudhary was born with S.C.I.D (severe combined immune deficiency) and underwent a bone marrow transplant when she was 6 months old,eventually developed pulmonary fibrosis and She sadly passed away on the morning of 24 January 2015, the very day before her book, My Little Epiphanies, was launched at the Jaipur Literature Festival,she was just 17 years old.
This book is kind of her way of letting her thoughts away from the pain and the trouble she was to live with,in the process we get know her & her life experiences at a personal level about.It has her beautiful doodles and short poems,it’s like you are reading her diary while she is going through many variegated emotions.
This little book has it all honesty,mischief,kindness, pain and positivity,hope and love.
I would like to mention a line from the book, and something that I’m recently trying to incorporate in my own life :
“We should be happy about the things we can do instead of being sad about things we are not capable of”.
