Soon after a week things suddenly became pathetic. Umamah didn’t even tell me what all she used to face when she used to step out of the house and I would’ve never known anything if only I wasn’t lucky enough one day. Anyone would lock the doors from outside. Our families would simply say we’re dead. People used to look at us as if we were murderers. So much hatred. Why? I had decided that we wouldn’t lose. Fortunately they weren’t the type of animals they showed the world and they didn’t try to hit us when month of Ramadan started.
I had to face problems but I managed. my wife gave up burqa. We had a long discussion. I was inspired, I read about Osho and his teachings and slowly and steadily I started getting inclined towards hinduism, I don’t know how. They are believers. And also my wife is fulfilling all her dreams, she learnt gujarati and she’s now a teacher and teaches unfortunate kids like us. She’s still learning English. I’m glad I made this decision . Religions are made to give a path to the humans but if your religion starts eating you up. You probably need a change. Change is good.
