|This is about Aaisha, a 15 year old girl and her experiences about her journey of life.|
I was only about two year old when my mother passed away. No one had the courage to tell a two year old kid then that she had lost her mother. For a few days, I was made to live with my far-off aunt to keep me away from the truth. Days passed by and I started to feel anxious. I still clearly remember how much I cried and the sympathy from the people around me increased. At last, my grandfather couldn't stand my tears and finally told me, "You're mother would never come back." His eyes turned moist and I sense, this was the first time ever I saw my grandpa crying. My grandfather and me were quite close. Dad was always on a move, so I never really got to spend so much time with him as much as I did with his father. One day, me and grandpa were just talking and that's when I came to know the actual reason behind my mom's death and why did my father married my present step mother, Avantika. 'Dadu' as I used to call him never got tired of calling me 'Aasha' instead of my actual name 'Aaisha'. He always used to say that I looked like my grandmother who died when she gave birth to their youngest son, Raj who is my dad. I was enlightened with the fact that the only reason my dad got Avantika home as my mother was that being a girl, I needed a mother who could I talk to about my every single trouble in this world. But unfortunately Avantika was a real wrong choice. (Avantika preferred me to call her by name. Maybe she wanted to feel young forever) I needed a mother not a figure which feels as if it just came out from fashion magazine, Vogue or Elle. She was only good for two things, her makeup tips and what to wear for tonight's party. Rest all were cons. Now that I've lived my life for 13 years without a mother, I know that I can live rest of the life alone too. I don't think I'll ever need Avantika. Actually, NEVER. Tweet
