Where There Is A Will There Is A Way.
There are 4 people in my home.
I live with my mother and two brothers. My father expired on 5th June 2012. All of our relatives left us. My brothers fought with each other without any reason. They both didn’t understand the responsibility of our home.
I was so depressed. My father wanted me to study in NIFT (National Institute Of Fashion Technology). Because there is no designer in Maheshwar, artisans use to work according to designers who live in Mumbai or Delhi and they do not give much time for Maheshwar. So my father wanted me to become a textile designer who can explore new designs, textures and color combinations. But unfortunately he left us with lots of tears, his dream couldn’t come true.
But I never lose hope and wanted his dream come true. I wanted $1500 rs to submit the NIFT entrance form, but I had no money so I asked my uncle for money.
My uncle has an institute and he said he will give me the money but I have to do his work. The work was slave work because during that period when his workers went on holidays I did that work. My work was cleaning all the tables of the institute, cleaning toilets and everything. I worked there 2 weeks like a slave to be able to submit the form.
One day all the students were watching a movie. I was watching too, from a corner. After watching it everyone was laughing and saying it is fake. But I watched it and applied it in my life.
One of my friends told me I can not go to NIFT without going to NIFT Preparation from an expensive institute. But I submitted the form which cost the 1500 rs and I used to imagine that I am in NIFT campus, studying, talking with people and giving presentations.
You won’t believe it but I cleared all the levels of entrance without any preparation!
Now I am a 2nd year student of NIFT.
It was like I am on the top of the world.
I am very, very thankful to Rhonda Byrne and all the team.
And So thankful to you all who are reading this story.
Now I want to expand the business with studying. I want to sell my beautiful weaving products, scarves, stoles, table cloth, curtains, etc. abroad, and I want many clients who understand the value of hand weaving products.
