“I have never understood why some people are lucky enough
to be born with the chances that I had,
to have this path in life...while across the world,
there is a woman just like me;
with the same talents and the same desires,
same work ethic and love for her family,
who would most likely have a better career
and write better speeches.

Only she sits in a refugee camp, and she has no voice.

She worries about what her children will eat,
how to keep them safe,
and if they’ll ever be allowed to return home. 

I don’t understand why this is my life, and that is hers.

I don’t understand that, but I will do as my mother asked..

I will do the best I can with this life, to be of use.”

Angelina Jolie

Niti’s devotion to Lord Shiva is the biggest guiding force in her life.
