Chapter 1 The Interview
She was ready to play with her fate.
Third Person's POV
"Hello Miss Ruhana, It's an absolute pleasure to have you here. You have been an inspiration to a lot of women here.", Said the interviewer sitting before Ruhana.
"I don't know about being an inspiration to women sitting here, but I know that I am an inspiration to my old self, and that's what I would always want to be."
"People say that behind every man's success there is always a woman . However, in your previous interviews you have stated that it is your husband who made you successful."asked the interviewer
Ruhana looked at her husband Saud and said, " Yes, he is the one who made me what I am today, if it was not for him I might not have done what I did and I would not have changed for the better. He had his own struggles but he took it upon himself to re-join the broken pieces of my soul. Even when those pieces were ready to pierce through him."
"Wow!! You have a beautiful relationship with your husband. Your son, Zaid and Mr Saud share a strong bond. During the start of your relationship, did you ever think that they might not be able to cope up with each other? At last they are not real blood."
"It is rather ironic to say the least , that it was not him who had to cope up with Saud, but he made me cope up with him and the beginning of our relationship was indeed Zayd." Said Ruhana.
"The next question might seem a bit rude to you, but this question has been nagging the mind of many people sitting here. Even though Zayd does not look much like him and is a completely different man. But wasn't it hard for you to raise him knowing what he did to you?"
"Honestly a lot of people ask me this question. I wouldn't say it was easy. At the very start I didn't even wish to look at Zayd. For me he was a constant reminder of his atrocities. However soon I realised that Zayd was not at fault and punishing him for his faults would not be right. Rather he is more a part of me than him."
"And now my final question for you tonight , which is basically the reason of this conference,
What would you like to say about the NGO and your book ?"
"My NGO "Raahat" is a part of my soul and looking at it I feel like at last I was able to do something right. Raahat has been providing legal and financial help. However I still believe that until you stand up for yourself no one can. That's what my husband taught me. Speaking of my book , it was my son's idea to write my journey down for people to know the tale of my rise, as he like to call it." Said Ruhana
"Would like to inaugurate your book and read the chapters of your life to us Miss Ruhanna?"
Ruhanna smiled and said, "I would love to. She held the book in her hands and read the title,
