Ayaan, meaning Gods gift. I was 16 when I met Ayaan for the first time.
A cute little 5 year old boy, born with Autism spectrum disorder. He had the most lovely eyes I have ever seen in my life.
My family had to spend 1 month in an Ayurveda hospital where Ayaan was under treatment. I used to visit them every evening after my vacation classes. When I saw Ayaan for the first time, he was drawing pictures using crayons on the walls of his room. I don’t remember what he was drawing, but I do remember the happiness on his face.
He was taken care by his Grand mother until his Mom comes back from work after 5.30 pm. I found myself happy spending time with him. His most favorite game was, hiding the keys of the bureau, & I had to pretend like searching for the keys even if it was always in his tiny little hand.
Later I came to know about his story.
The day Ayaan was born, his father was informed about his condition. Even after Ayaan being his own Son, his father left him & his mother. Few months back he gave talaq. Talaq allows a Muslim man to legally divorce his wife by stating the word talaq. I don’t know how can someone be such a coward.
Then they were living along with Ayaans Grandmother. Ayaan’s mother managed to get a job. I don’t know how much she earned back then, but I remember her walking through the corridor wearing the same clothes 2 days back she had worn & repeatedly.
I am not in touch with Ayaan & family now. I don’t know where they are. But he sure is one gifted child & I do love him a lot.
Shared this story not because i felt disappointed with the way Ayaans father treated them. I feel pity for him not to be born as a complete man.
I wish you all happiness & love in this world Ayaan & his strong brave Mother.
