Aisha Chaudhary

My Little Epiphanies

This is a movie tie-in edition and any reviews posted before October 10, 2019 are from the previous edition of the same title published in 2015.
Aisha Chaudhary was born with SCID (severe combined immune deficiency) and underwent a bone-marrow transplant when she was six months old. She lived in New Delhi, where she was born.
The year 2014 was brutal for Aisha as her disease progressed, and her lungs started giving up on her. The last few months of the year felt like a roller-coaster ride, one that seemed to be mostly going down. Spending almost all her time lying in bed, Aisha wrote down her thoughts to get some relief, to get them out of her head.
Aisha's life was not anything like the average life of an urban teenager, but she had experienced a lifetime of emotions; life and death, fear and anger, love and hate, the depths of utter sorrow and the happiest one can be.
In My Little Epiphanies she took a hard look at her own feelings and what it was that gave her a sense of hope and control. This book gave her life purpose and meaning, something to hold on to.
Sometimes, Aisha's little epiphanies had morphed into doodles that capture what was going on in her mind as her destiny played itself out. Through the book she wanted the world to understand her unusual life and she hoped that it will inspire others, going through similar hardships, to find peace.

    Aisha Chaundry has made me realise how much I should thank God for being alive and how much I should be happy no matter how difficult life could be.
    Continue resting in peace, Aisha.

    I recently watched a movie based on the author and I was so eager to read this book. And I'm pleased to read it. We gotta learn so much from her.

    It’s funny how we give each other blood in order to survive. If we are willing to do that, I don’t understand how there is so much hate in the world.

    When I’m high, it’s like my soul is telling me a secret.
