A true inspiring story of a Phoenix birdie-MULLA-International youth day 2020

When we celebrate International youth day in this week (August 12-2020) I couldn’t hold myself back from writing about one of my classmate who fully recovered from a deadly cancer state and recently received inspire youth award(Kerala-state level)for her various social activities..Yes, I was lucky enough to share my grade 12 language classes with this Miss.Bold & Beautiful.

‘Identical twins ‘👯‍♀️ are always special to us right?? Yes, she is one among them. This is what comes to my mind when I think about her.. The girl with hip-long pleated Rapunzel hair and rosary necklace, the girl who loved nature, books and travel..owner of exceptional writing skills..classical singer and dancer..whoa what not !!

Unexpected things can happen in our life when we are least expecting it..and imagine that too happening in the honeymoon months of marriage..yes, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer on the 3rd month of her marriage..the divorce notice which was received on the first day of her chemo, devastated her both physically and mentally…However, she wasn’t ready to accept failure..she decided to fight..she didn’t weep or let anyone in her family to do so. She was the one who gave mental support for her parents. Even the side effects of chemo was overwhelming she decided not to spend her days inside the four walls of her house.

It is said that sometimes bad things happens in our life, puts us directly on to the right path and all the best things will ever happen to us. And I think, this seems to be very true in her life as well. She started to deliver motivational classes, meanwhile, she got the appointment letter as teacher from one of the reputed school. She is more than a teacher to her kids at school, where she overcomes the grief of not being able to embrace a motherhood. And she continues to inspire all the life she touched.

When we choose to end the cycle of negativity and sufferings, it means that we’re strong enough to raise above all of it like a Phoenix bird.yes she is strong..

When we choose to treat others with kindness even you’re hurt and emotionally burned, it provides you immense courage and happiness throughout our life. Yes, she’s courageous and the happiest..

When we called her, by her real name Liji, she named herself as ‘MULLA’ for her rebirth, which means jasmine flower in English..I couldn’t agree more on it, because she is as pure as a Jasmine flower and spreads the aroma of inspiration throughout her life….Keep smiling girl, your smile has the power to change the world and don’t let the world to take away that smile 😊..

Now let’s talk about some of the young women activists around the world that are trying to change the world for a better place to live. And I thought for a quick and better understanding its better to tabulate them..
