Lookup Stories : My moments of absolute Hope and Optimism are those spent with the angelic MIARA

Hey Folks,

I have always lived to believe that life is beautiful and always looked up to the first rays of sun early morn, as the rays of hope... absolutely motivating ...but a few minutes later as I pick the newspaper, my heart is shattered to see it full of news-pieces of heinous crimes and corruption......My heart is about to sink in deep despair when a thought of someone really special almost miraculously lifts my spirit..In my life, that special someone,definitely worth ans expression Straight From the Heart, is my best-friend Miara...For me every moment spent with her is pure inspiration, full of positivity for life...Yes dears, most  truly, every-time the darkness of pessimism engulfs me, looking at her ever-smiling face and deep eyes reinforces a staunch optimism in me...The moments I spend with her are absolutely divine for me and trust me she deserves much more praise than this...In this blogpost, I bring to you, her real #LookUp worthy story which is undoubtedly contagiously inspiring......

"My association with Mother Teresa's Child Care Homes (as the Orphanages are called) dates back to my childhood....And as I have grown up, my connection to the lovely kids out there has grown Fonder and Deeper..I clearly remember, for umpteen number of years now, my heart has been filled with empathy for all those lovely damsels, whose so called near and dear ones abandoned them on the path of life...My best friend Miara is one such abandoned little Girl, on whom the biggest atrocity of fate was that she knew the reason why parents have left her alone in this cruel world.......And at a tender age of 5 her mom and dad (I dont know if it is right to call them so, for I place parents next to God ) have left her on the roads of Agra City, mercilessly. And, can you guess for what grave Fault of my tiny darling..... ??

Her gravest crime in her parents' eyes was that she stammered and so they will not be able to marry her off some day...What Pity, when in India they would stop considering a Girl Child a burden to be meant to transferred to someone else thru' marrying...Anyways , I never found my Miara problematic, I rather felt her parents were sick,really sick .... For My sweet Miara, was such an adorable child, she always hid all her sorrows in a locked corner of her heart and kept smiling gloriously...She had a beautiful smile which was enough to wash away all sorrows of the world....She was a real darling of everyone in the orphanage always ready to help others....For me,she always awakened optimism around her and I was so glad to be her friend.

My little Miara, loved studying and she was undoubtedly a sharp kid...and so the Child Care Centre authorities ensured she was  given a fair chance in the means of what was possible for them...Though I always felt like family in this Mother Teresa Centre in Agra, with all the awesome kids out there...I always felt a little more closer to Miara....She was a few years younger than me, but the harsh world, has made her grow up prematurely....As far as I was concerned at that point of time, I always saved all my Pocket Money to buys Gifts for the kids inthe orphanage, on Diwali and Holi....And my Dearie, Miara always informed me in advance what she really needed, as she knew her means and resources were really limited. We loved spending time with each other...Our Fondness for each other soon culminated into a sweet and deep Friendship of a lifetime.She was so innocent, full of life, with the purest heart,I have come across till date...

Yes, My Friend Miara,is extremely nice and caring ...I have never seen her uttering a word of complaint to the Almighty or to her parents...But I knew she was extremely traumatized behind her beautiful smile, as wide as river Nile... Every Single Moment she worked towards her Sole Ambition of overcoming her Weakness of Stammering, which she considered a curse of a lifetime on herself...She read a lot of books on speech therapy and wanted to become a Doctor...She would often tell me she wanted to set an example to others and give a lesson to fellow parents that they should not be playing with a Child's emotions for a Trifle cause like this....She was not able to forgive her parents.

But her road was tough extremely tough, tougher than anyone would believe for an orphaned girl.As she turned 14 she had to move out of the Child Care Center to a Charitable Trust's Girl Hostel...In sometime she figured out that this place was nothing short of a hell..This was a totally corrupt place with unending atrocities on abandoned Adolescent Girls...My Miara really did not know what to do and where to go....until one day, realizing that all her dreams were dieing an unnatural death, she ran away from the hostel..............ran with all her might....without giving up hope, at a single instance....such people are real source of optimism, had it been anyone else, he/she would have perished long back.

She than came to stay with us...This is when for the first time, I saw her going own on her knees both emotionally and physically, under severe pressure engulfing her from all directions and burying her in deep despair and vehement unbearable torture but she expressed to me,her desire to still fight it out and pave her way to her  dreams and so I seeked my dad's intervention..My dad fetched her a decent job in an All Women's Cooperative Society and with this began a new chapter in the life of my dearest Miara.

She started to work extremely hard both at her job and in studies...Her hardwork did not go in vain...In due course of time she got selected in the medical entrance examination...There was no looking back...On account of her merit, her fees was borne by the Birla Education Trust...Step my Step she now achieved various Well-deserved Milestones in her life...

Today several years later, she is a leading Speech Therapist at a Renouned Chain of Hospitals and A leading Social figure fighting for Female Child Rights...My best Friend till date and a lesson to infinite others, she is a remarkable woman...Her extreme will and determination became her profound weapons to achieve her goals in life...

She is the biggest asset in my life ...I Really #LookUp to her, for the strength of her character and am proud to share her story of grit with the world....The moments I spend with her reinforce my belief in optimism about life....And like always, looking at her ever smiling face and deep eyes, further strengthens my belief that Life Indeed is Beautiful!!
