This story is about a girl named Aakanksha Sharma who was diagnosed by Epilepsy when she was a child.

Aakanksha was brilliant at studies but her graph was going down as she was going up. She learned basketball when she was in 3rd class and was selected as basketball captain but night before her match she was in ICU and diagnosed with Epilepsy.

Her mother used to beg in front of teachers during PTM to promote her to next class and she will work hard. Later she left her home and went to Rawatbhata as her father was posted there. She had to repeat 2 classes. in School everyone used to bully her.

Β 

Her 1st day at new school was in shirt and pant. She had boycut hair as result of which all got confused but her class teacher had slip of her name.

When she was about to sit, teacher said why are you sitting in girl’s row? go to boy’s row, at this she replied back “Mam I am girl” at this whole class laughed at her. She was feeling very hurt.

Everyday her mother used to ask How was your day? lekin mehaj puchne se kuch nahi hota..Kuch din baad usse bola gya ki tumhe stage pe thought of the day bolna hai, she was not ready and all used to laugh at her.

She went to stage and when she started speaking, whole school was laughing at her including Principal who was standing besides her.

Us puri bheed mein aakanksha ko apne chote bhai ka chehra dikhai diya jo embarass feel kr rha tha ki ye meri badi behen hai.

Us din wo buri tarah se tut gyi thi..har baar jb bhi uske 65% marks aate mummy papa bolte acche marks hain lekin uske bhai ke jab 65 aate toh usko daant padti ye bhi koi marks hain…

wo shayad bhul jaate ki unki beti wahin hai usko bahut bura lgta ki uske mummy papa usse kuch nhi bolte..wo padhai mein bahut hi sincere thi..kuch saal baad papa ki posting delhi mein ho gyi.

Aakanksha bahut hi hard-working and creative ladki thi..7th class mein jab usko pta chala ki wo bahut acchi poem likh sakti hai toh use bharosa nahi hua..Delhi mein school uniform skirt thi..wo har baar mummy se bolti ki ghutne tak toh kr do..main cartoon lagti hoon sab haste hain mujhe dekh kar..uski mummy mana kr deti har baar aur roj uske classmates uska majak udaate kyuki wo skirt ke naam pe ghagraa pehen kr aati..Kuch din baad jb uski hindi teacher ko pta chala ki wo poem likhti hai unhone usi din usko stage pe recite krne ke liye bola…aakanksha ke lakh mana karne ke bawjood wo nhi mani..wo dar gyi thi itne saare logo ko dekh kr..jab usne bolna shuru kiya uske hath kaapne lage..

class mein jb wo aayi sab usi pe has rahe the..deepak naam ka ek choti height wala ladka uske kaapte hathon ki acting kr rha tha..wo hath isiliye nhi kaape the kyuki wo dari hui thi wo hath kaap rahe the uski dawai ki wajah se..wo class se nikal kr baahgi tbhi saamne wo hindi ki teacher khadi thi..class mein unhi ka period tha..aakanksha ke haavbhav dekh kar wo sab samajh gayi aur deepak ko class ke bahar kr diya.

school mein koi ye nhi sochta na ki saamne wale ko koi problem ho sakti hai..baat bas ek ladke ki nahi thi..baat soch ki thi..

unhe shayad ye nhi pta tha ki bachpan se doctor ke paas ja kr check up krana aur reports mein abnormal aane ki feeling kaisi hoti hai..

apne chote bhai ke chehre pe sharmindagi ka bhaav dekhne ki feeling kaisi hoti hai..school mein koi uska dost nhi tha kyuki usko nahi aata tha baat krna..wo dusro ko observe krti rehti thi aur kitabon mein khoyi rehti thi..kitabien hi uski best friend ban gyi thi.

School khatam hua..farewell tak uske baal badh gaye the aur wo sundar lag rahi thi lekin shayad wo kisi ko dikhai hi nhi deti thi..kher 12th ke board se pehle usko fit aaya tha..uske exam dene ke chances kam lag rahe the lekin usne exam bhi diya aur 68% bhi aaye uske..

Ek baar usne chupke se apne fit ki video dekhne ki koshish ki thi jo doctor banane ke liye bolti thi lekin usse 5 second bhi nhi dekhi gyi..

usne band kr di aur socha ab main life mein itna bada kaam karungi ki mummy papa ko garv ho mujh pe..ab reports normal aati thi lekin doctor har baar jab bolti ki shaadi se pehle pati ko bta dena..shaadi se pehle milwa dena toh wo andar se tut jati aur usse jyada uske mummy papa tut jate..

aakhir har maa baap ka sapna hota hai ki unki beti ki shaadi dhum dham se ek acche ladke se ho..

Delhi university se B.A. karne ke baad usne Banasthali Vidyapith se MSW kiya jo Rajasthan mein hai..abhi bhi wo line yaad hai jab uske papa ne usse kaha tha “chupke se bathroom mein ja kar dawai kha lena” wo sochti rahi ki meri galti nhi hai toh main kyu chupke se khaun dalwai..wo sabke saamne hi khaati..1 room mein 3 log rehte the..sab sawal krte ye kis chij ki dawai hai toh muskura ke bo deti Allergy ki hai..uski roommate ankita thodi pagal thi..uski kisi se nhi banti thi puri university mein..

co-incidentally Aakanksha ko uske collge ki friend mil gyi jo usse apne room mein le gyi warna ankita toh pura Masters jhaadu hi lgwati rehti usse..naye room mein sab acche the..ab aakanksha ka ek hi maksad tha apne mummy papa ko proud feel krana aur acche marks lana..

Gold medal toh nhi mila lekin uska placement ho gaya..usse abhi bhi yaad hai jb gold medal na milne pe wo tut gyi thi. uski best friend ne kaha tha

“Main tujhe acche se jaanti hoon tera dil bahut saaf hai tu kisi bade award ke liye bani hai ye chote mote gold medal ke liye nhi” uski aankhien bhar aayi thi us waqt..2nd year mein uska placement ho gya aur wo job karne lgi..3 saal job krne ke baad aaj wo Ph.D kr rahi hai..

lekin jindagi ne itne hi samay mein usko bahut kuch sikha diya aur wo abhi bhi kuch bada krne ki logo ko inspire krne ki aur Especially Abled Children ke liye NGO kholne ke sapne dekh rahi hai.

This is the story of a strong girl who has always been beating the odds.
