Good morning with big smile
Today is the first time that i am going to share somethings in public about one part of my life
my real friends and family know about this but not Everyone
I have not mentioned about this in my book or Autobiography , today's story is very special because it's part of my life and much more then you can imagine it's about
Shabana Shaikh is my niece , she is my small sister's [SABIYA] daughter, Sabiya had this baby girl when she was very young around the age of between 15 or 16 and this baby girls is Shabana Shaikh and she is now 16 years old but when you meet shabana and sabiya together they seems like sisters , sabiya was 16 years old and her husband left her , while she was pregnant and she was working in village doing farming , house work but sabiya was very brave to take a decision to give the birth to the child rather then the to kill the child even though she was not very matured but she managed to give life to this baby girls , who was not accepted by her in laws , her husband ran away with some other women at that moment she did not know what to do ???, were to go??? and whom to ask for help ??? , but some or how she managed to come back to Bombay from that village with a small baby in her hand .
When she returned to Bombay ,she was in a very bad condition , she was hungry , no money in her hand , she was a wearing one sare which was very dirty and torn.
She was trying to find my mother or her family , she could not find my mother cause my mother kept on changing home is every 10 to 12 months cause she stayed on the rant but sabyia was lucky enough to find my mother's family but the worst part is they asked her to go away like a dog and did not even offer her a glass of water and thats one reason why i have never or stoped being around my mother family ,when she started to look for Sabira because she had few old memories about my mother coming to visit sabira in snehasadan in house no 8 in jogesjawari [w] , this place is in north of mumbai , she knew the street but not the place , she was on that street for 3 day and one afternoon she found 1 Sister and that sister use to take care of snehasadan children.
Then sabira took Sabiya and her baby [shabana] to my mother's place , then sabiya and shabana started to leave with my mother but it's not been very easy for any of us especially for sabiya and shabana cause it was tuff to get admission in school without a birth certificate and father, the 1st thing they would ask sabiya is where is the father ?? and every time she was left with no answer
Some or how we managed to get Shabana in good school , i had no home i use to leave with Eustace Fernandes and sometimes i use to come and spend time with Shabana , it use to be very hard for me to see her there , i wanted to remove her from that place cause my mother use to leave in the slum and the environment was very bad , people were very rough and tuff and i din't wanted to see Shabana become one of them.
So i managed some or how to put shabana is a very good school in MOUNT MARY CONVENT HIGH SCHOOL in [ Bandra],when she stared this school english was very hard for her and she had a tuff time with her studies but with the time she managed to pickup things like other children
