Popping in pills to withstand the pain of her herniated Lumbar 4,5 along with driving 5 hours daily to work was not easy.

The Best Moment in Life

The best moment was to find the broken her, to mend herself and to rise from ashes like a phoenix. Once she did that, she started giving a helping hand to others around her. This is because Dr Ashwini understands how it feels to have gone through the same pathway.

Dr Ashwini Building an Empire

The stone that they once threw at her is now on its way to become the empire. She built it out of blood, sweat and tears. Moreover, she is also honoured for so many prayers from good wishers who helped her rise from blasphemy.

Due to the teachings of her parents and elders, she always does not let pride go above her head. When she hears people messaging her in her private networks and saying, “Hey I never knew you went through this, I thought you had a perfect life, thank you for bringing a smile and hope in my life“, that makes her elated.

Dr Ashwini _A Beacon of Hope

Being an only child and a beacon of hope for the family, made her mature intellectually at a very young age. Her father showed her utmost resilience when she was battling stage 4 Cancer. Dr Ash’s mom on the other hand lives up to the extremes of life just for entertainment purposes. Her mother said, “We live only once” when she tried stopping her mother from bungee jumping or skydiving. 

As arrogant as this may sound, she thanked her reflection in the mirror. This is because it told her to get up and get going every single time she felt defeated.
