This post is about my childhood friend Nitika about her life as a village girl and how she overcame over it and won the hearts of everyone in the society. Her long journey of life with such a smooth ride could not have been possible without her family. It could have taken a different turn if her family was not there with her at different phases of my life cycle. She was the only girl child in the family and the best part was that they never discriminated me from other family members. The credit goes to them for supporting her to the fullest and accompanying me to face the challenges of life with full confidence.
I know her for many years and her story is quite different from other girls in the society. It was not easy for her to challenge against all the odds which she had faced before coming to the city. She told me that people had different thoughts and people in her village would often taunt her and asked her to cover her face and often talk to my family to avoid sending me to college for further studies. They also pointed out about her wearing jeans and would ask her to do household work. But she owe to her family who had faith in her and gave me a chance to pursue further studies.
She did not have a good start in the college and people would often talk about appearance. She would cry a lot when people would criticize her but it was her brother who told her to hold nerves and believe in god and concentrate on studies. At times, he would accompany her and give her directions to improve personality which really helped her to get more confidence and calm herself. Finally she got success as people started to accept her and her success is getting a good job due to her personality and hard work.
You should also take a look at some of the startling figures that the Nihar Naturals #IAmCapable survey conducted by Nielsen India reveals:
a. 69% of men agree that their judgement of women is based on their looks.
b. 64% of women agree that the judgments passed on them have affected their ability to reach their true potential.
c. 70%of women agree that majority of judgments on women are from family members or friends rather than strangers.
d. 72% of women agree that working women face more judgments on their looks or their clothes than housewives.
I would like to suggest all women who often feel alone in such cases and so you must be brave and raise your voice and ignore such people. You will definitely feel much better and live a better life. Further you must talk to people who are your well wishers and can provide the support to move out of such situation and giving you confidence to be stronger at all times.I have discussed this story to motivate and encourage people to live their life and stay away from people who try to impose their life and decisions on you.I suggest you to stay alive and live your life to your fullest.
