#OWNYOURSTORY

Children are a blessing of God, but some people think they have a right to question His kindness or the worst, predict His actions. Aasma Aslam from usman colony, Gujranwala is a divorced lady with a beautiful little girl who hasn’t seen her father for more than a year.
Aasma’s life before marriage was nothing more than an impecunious existence. In that time, she only dreamt of a life in another home where all her necessary requirements would be pleased. This was only possible after marriage, thus all her hopes were hooked on her future husband. Her better half was chosen by the family and she was happy. Everything seemed perfect until two months into the marriage, when she found out she was pregnant, an unreasonable condition was presented to her by her in-laws and especially her husband. They wanted a baby boy. There was nothing wrong in hoping for a baby boy, but not having a baby girl at all was not up to her. Aasma’s husband with the consent of his family started giving her some homeopathic medicine. As the time came near, she was afraid. In fact, she was terrified of any different outcome as her in-laws were now very blunt of their hopes.
It was a girl and as predicted she was the fault. Aasma faced verbal and physical abuse, but the most painful thing was no one accepted her daughter. Shortly, without any second chance, she was divorced.
Now she leaves with her parents and 3 brothers. Father is a heart patient, so the elder brother works to run the household chores. The day she came back home, the only thing she wanted was to cater for her daughter’s needs. Her aims seemed very apparent by these words, “Jo dosre bachon ko deekh kar ek bache may hasrat ati hai who meri beti ko kabhi na aye”.
Being at home, whole her life and never entering school made her chances extremely less. However, she met Kaarvan’s team while they were visiting her colony for enrollment. Aasma was convinced that this could open a door for her. She asked for the permission by her parents and they agreed, but her brothers totally shut her down. Making them belief in her aims took weeks nevertheless they agreed too.
Aasma has become Kaarvan’s alumnus now, and she is very much determined to find different options with her new set of designing and stitching skills. She finds herself in debt of Kaarvan for making her find the real change.
