Lucky

            I am fortunate. Lucky to have an identity today. Precious me. Wanna know more about this story, just go ahead with the flow.
            So when I was a kid and like in every family, my parents, also my uncle and grandparents were deciding which school should I get admitted into. One of the thoughts that every girl's family gets is "Why to spend more money on educating a girl who is going to leave this home after marriage" must have also come to their mind too, but they choose an English medium school.
             As soon I grew up and it was time for me to start with my secondary schooling, I felt my education in this school is not up to the mark and I demanded to get admitted into another school, there were my dad and grandpa who supported me and did exactly what I wanted. The point here is not about education thing but coming from an orthodox family, wearing western dresses in the area or surrounding I reside wasn't acceptable to my family but there was my mother who supported me and gets me to wear the outfits I wished for. Sooner or later we say, my entire family accepted it too. See I told u before, I am lucky.
                                 
            Every girl is taught household chores and has been made a mandatory thing for girls. I am doing it differently. My mindset was fixed to get passionate about things around me I admire, taking measure care of my health, and not choosing household work as a compulsion. I am blessed. I am not here to compare but I have studied with vernacular medium students in college days who were not comfortable speaking or getting good marks because it was tough for them to write or understand English, I have seen girls and women working in the kitchen, not able to focus on studies and even in the worst health or bad mood cooking and cleaning. Also, not all girls are lucky to get to wear whatever they want to as they are taught modesty.

            So what happened here is either girls choose the wrong path by lying to the family or listening blindly to what people ask or demand. Luckily, I was a free soul in this matter. This definitely doesn't mean I didn't have any rules or regulations to be followed. No there weren't any deadlines for me but I made one for myself; Also I am not saying go for English medium studies or don't cook or clean or wear shorts, no that's a personal choice. If one willingly wants to live that life, one can. But Girls kinda like me will appreciate this privilege that we got in our life due to the supportive family. Well, this is not just an article, it's s a thank note with all the love to all those beautiful families who believed in their daughters, supported her, and gave and did all the best provisions they could instead of thinking, "Why to spend more money on educating a girl who is going to leave this home after marriage? "
While some have already done this, others will surely make their families feel proud soon. Not to forget, "Papa kehte hain bada naam karega
Beta hamara aisa kaam karega" And also, "Beta Beti Ek Sammaan" Till then, I am lucky and hope girls who feel this article relatable will find themselves blessed too. ❤️

(P.S. This is what independence is all about. I wasn't having bodyguards around me but I was confident enough that if I get scared or anything unpleasing would come to me, my people would throw them off my life. I was taught that you be right and do or wear whatever you want to and here we are to protect you. Being orthodox, they didn't think of society but thought of me and my happiness. Get me the best things. I am lucky. I wish everyone understands this and makes every girl feels lucky too. Just a matter of support.) - *Story of a free soul.*
