Shena lived in small village called Mohali in maharashtra. She is from lower middle class family which is very traditional in nature. Boys are given more importance so girls are lesser loved and valued. She is hard working and shy causes her who seems very easy to bullied. Her Cousins picked on her and told that she has to do there share of work.she didn't say anything and does all the house work of family as they lived in joint family including grandparents and her uncle and aunt and two cousins.

No I will make a demand as I never asked them atleast they will listen to me right . No No No negative thinking I will try...
I should first come the house chores when papa sit for breakfast I will talk to him. I can do it.
Can I really do it?
Atleast I should try even at last what could happen papa will reject me and scold me.
Continuing work but my heart couldn't calm down.
when breakfast time arrived I couldn't able to talk to parents as my
uncle also came for breakfast at same time so i couldn't bring myself to say anything.
papa and mummy hurried home and gone to work.
whole day I couldn't calm down I don't know what to do...
OK then first I need to take a year extra for medical examination preparation..,it just that how am I going to convince my parents?
Let's just face it.... Now or it would never going to happen
I continued to form plan to how to negotiate with my parent. I am scared. but I couldn't do anything about that...
as evening arrived I began to do chores as it my work in the house if it's not get complete before mother return, she going to get angry I don't want her to angry..I have to discuss my future plan with them.
papa came as 6 in the evening followed mummy came home.
after getting fresh and having all family gather for dinner we sit on dinning table.
After dinner I gather my courage and walked to my parents room. As I knock on the door.
I heard my father say "shena, I m tired, if not important talk to your mother, don't disturb me."
I knew this going to happen he never give importance to me... but I have to do it now. If not how am I going to change.
Then without thinking I called to father " papa, I want something , this Is the first time ever I ask you something please will you listen to me."
Now is the that walk through fire.
