Her senses failed her. Her wings were burnt. Her body was broken. But still her heart was beating faith and hopes and love. Her eyes masked her pain with the fire to achieve. Everyone thought her beautiful mind was to be shackled. Everytime she tried, she was beaten down, down until there was no more to go. She got nobody left to believe. She had no time to waste her futile hopes in some unknown human. With the fire in her eyes and the smoke of the burnt wings, she chose to rise. It's not the difference that matters, it's the perceptions that matter. She wrenched her mind from the shackles that confined her. She pushed above the bottomless place she seemed to be falling, with such a force that the smoke from her destroyed wings caught the fire of her eyes and high she went flying as bright as the sun. #writersnetwork #inspirations

"Don't worry, you got this", "yes I got this" these were the self-motivation sentences Almas was telling herself before entering the HR room for an interview, " just remember you have a family to feed you can't afford No", she reminded herself again, Interview went well and she got selected, this was her first job ever,
On the first day of the job Almas was very nervous and didn't have any idea what's going on, " Good morning, everyone, this is Vivek your Hr, I want all of you to fill this form, it's for security purposes, you all have 30 min. to fill and submit, see you" Hr completed and exit the training room,
Almas took the form and looked for a pen in her purse, but soon realised she forgot the pen, she looked around, everyone was busy with their forms, it was embarrassing for her to ask for a pen,
"excuse me, can I sit here," the guy asked she nodded, the guy sit beside her and started filling his form too,
Almas gathered all her courage and asked for a pen " Do you have extra pen sir "? he looked at her interestingly and gave his pen and took another pen from the bag and filled the form, after submitting she tried to recall whom she borrowed a pen from, as she was nervous she didn't look at him, but she remembered he was wearing a green formal shirt,
"oh no, there are two guys wearing the almost the same color, what should I do now" she was scolding herself, " ok, now I have to ask both of them simple" she gathered her confidence again and walked to the guy talking with Hr " excuse me, Mr. is this your pen I borrowed, sir"? this time the guy looked her closely as no one in the entire room called him 'sir' he said with a smile "yes, "
this was their first meet,
Training started, a few days later trainer asked them to create their profile on company portal, and the responsibility to complete the task was given to that guy only, "Miss. Almas, please come I need your details" he said, she walked to him and start giving details,
" your birth date?" he asked,
" It was 25 January," she said with a very low voice,
"I am asking for your birth date not yesterday's date," he thought she is confused,
"I know and I am telling you my birth date only, it was yesterday," Almas replied with confidence,
"Ohh, happy belated birthday, I thought you got confused" he chuckled, "I think we haven't introduced each other yet, my name is Sharjil" "Almas" she smiled,
"I know, everyone talks about you here"
"Really!? why ? have I done something wrong?"Almas was shocked,
"no, no, it's just that you don't talk much, not even with girls" Sharjil replied,
"I am not sure if I can make friends"
"well, you should try at least, they are nice, hey! you can have lunch with us" Sharjil asked Almas,
"Okay" Almas agreed to Sharjil,
Almas was sitting on the last seat,
"Almas, can I sit here," Sharjil asked after completing the given task,
"hmm" Almas just nodded,
"If you are not comfortable I'll sit somewhere else"
"no that's ok, please be seated" Almas replied quickly,
"thank you," Sharjil said politely
After an uncomfortable silence, Sharjil decided to start the conversation,
"so, what are you doing here? I mean I know working, but why here, I heard your location is far from here"
"yes, it takes almost 2-3 hours to reach here" she replied
"What!! are you serious ?" sharjil was shocked
"yes, I am"
"wow, you are a very strong girl, but why are doing this?"
"Discovering who am I" Almas replied with little sadness, however she couldn't tell him that she had no choice but to work, as she had a family to feed,
"This place is full of bad people Almas, just be careful" Sharjil was concerned about her, both felt something but couldn't understand what is it,
Time passes through Almas worked truly hard and completed the training,
As time passes Sharjil and Almas came closer,
she never allows any boy in her life, but Sharjil and her relation was totally different, they use to sit together, eat together, having unlimited long long conversations, having fun together,
One day Sharjil felt Almas is worried about something so he asked but Almas was not comfortable telling him he felt that, but few days later Almas was carrying same worries this time Sharjil couldn't control so he stopped her after shift end,
"Almas, what's wrong?" Sharjil asked
"no.. nothing, why " Almas tried to cover her face,
"don't try to hide it, please tell me what happened? you are worried about something, I can see that" He holds her hand and asked as he was really concerned about her,
Almas looked at Sharjil's hand and started crying,
"Kaushik," she started but couldn't complete
"Please don't cry, you know you can trust me, right! "
"Sharjil, I don't want to work here anymore" she was unable to understand where to start from,
"why Almas, please tell me what happened, is it about Kaushik?" Sharjil tried to guess,
"Sharjil would you do me a favor please"
"tell me, you don't have to ask like stranger"
"please kill me Sharjil, I want to die" Almas was crying badly,
"How could you say something like this, I am warning you, you will not harm yourself, Please tell me what happened, we'll figure something out" Only Sharjil could understand how he controlled himself, "please stop crying and tell me, I am requesting you please..."
"when you were on your holidays off, Kaushik was sitting beside me, he did something that's unexplainable" Almas covered her face with hands and started crying again, "now he touches me wherever he wants, it kills me Sharjil...."
"and what you were doing? , didn't you reported it? you just tolerating him, why?" Sharjil tried to keep himself calm, however, he was extremely angry, but controlled himself and start comforting Almas by holding her hands tightly,
"No, I can't do that, how can I say this to anyone else if I am not able to tell you?" Almas asked
"Almas, you know I can break all his bones right away, but I won't do that, do you know why"
"because I want you to do that, the girl I know who's name is Almas, is a very strong girl, she admires me, she has the courage to face anything in life, she manages her job, family and friends positively, she is very helpful and kind yet no one can break her, I know my sister very well, she can fight and she will," Sharjil said
Almas smiled didn't reply anything, sharjil started saying again
"do you know everyone in the office thinks we are a couple," Sharjil asked her
"hmm I know"
"See people talked wrong things about us but you never did anything wrong, because we both know what we are and who we are, don't need to explain Anyone anything, but when someone makes a wrong move you have to raise your voice, whatever happens, I will be standing with you but I won't fight for you because I want to be your support system, not your wheelchair, you are my strong sister naa, tomorrow you are going to report it to the management, understood dear sister"
Almas nodded in yes,
The very next day she reported it to the management, and Kaushik got kicked out of the office, and one more good thing happened that day, manager stopped all workers and made an announcement, " Today we came to know about something very serious matter, I want all girls to understand this and also guys, you have to respect each and every single person in the office, girls!! if you feel anything bad is happening to you, you can just walk to me and report it, don't be afraid, I repeat please do not afraid of anyone, if any boy even if it's your senior touches you with wrong intentions,just walk to me, be blunt and report it, do you understand!!" all workers replied in chorus " yes , sir!"
Almas found herself as a completely different person, A girl who was shy, a girl who couldn't complete her sentences infront of anyone told everything whatever was killing herself,a girl who is soft yet hard to break,
A girl who is in a public place is not a public property, she's responsibility, please understand this,
one last massage for girls 'Be proud to be who you are, you don't need to be afraid of anyone, you have to help yourself and the world will help you,
Many seek a reward before they have prepared to receive it. A gambler can suddenly obtain a fortune but lose it all because he did not have the knowledge of how to save it. An artist can become an overnight superstar but find herself trapped in scandals because she did not take the time to gain experience while she was still unknown. A president can gain the highest power but find that the pyramid’s top is a lonely place if he lacks the wisdom to choose honest advisors. If you seek greatness, is it not better to spend your time preparing for it instead of simply thinking of how much you deserve it? If you cannot learn to manage your life with a little, how can you expect to manage it with a lot? Spend every waking hour in pursuit of your goals and every minute between in search of the knowledge you will need when you finally reach them.
