On 24th January JLF had a very special launch. It was the launch of vivacious optimism and powerful hope. It was the launch of the book ‘My Little Epiphanies’ by Aisha Chaudhary.
Today with deep sadness but unshakable positivity what she was, we inform you of the passing away of Aisha Chaudhary on the day of her book’s launch.
Aisha Chaudhary was born with an immune deficiency disorder and at 17 she overcame all odds to have become an accomplished artist today. Despite a serious lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis, her persistent optimism, extraordinary maturity in the face of impossible odds, and calm perspective on life’s challenges have been an inspiration to many.
Aisha recorded a brief message hours before her passing on Saturday morning, which was played out at the launch of her book. You may watch the launch here. Her book will be available for buying in a while.
“When we say ‘ambition’ we tend to think of a career, success and recognition. Certainly each one of us should strive to be as successful as possible within our chosen spheres, but the ambition of ‘merely’ attaining happiness is a very worthy one too. When you think of it, isn’t all ambition geared towards feeling happy? If you want to be rich, famous or successful, you want these things because you believe they will make you happy. So really the ultimate goal of life is happiness – or at least it should be.”
Her message was:
“So what if you have a life threatening condition, struggle with financial difficulties or have any number of other problems. You can still dream to achieve what you desire. Just because you and I may be hamstrung with seemingly insurmountable problems, you and I don’t have to give up on our dream; give up on life!”
As Aisha Chaudhary turned to art when she was in a wheel chair and unable to participate in normal activities that kids around her took for granted, so can we transform a problem into an opportunity. It all depends upon our perspective.
RIP. Your life force will guide our lives forever.
