#StoriesOfStrength26/11 The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack For three kids in Varanasi, their mum is a hero, home-maker and working woman The first woman in her family to take a job, Guddi Maurya moved from a village in Deoria to Varanasi to work with the Railways Guddi Maurya, a woman of few words and sombre eyes, says she is the first woman of her lot to make her own living. On November 26, 2008, when terror struck Mumbai, Guddi’s husband Mishrilal Maurya, an autorickshaw driver, had gone to drop his sister Vijayi and her husband Ramkomal Khushwaha at the railway station. Mishrilal took a fatal bullet to his chest. Guddi (32), seated in her 10 foot by 12 foot home in the railway colony off the Varanasi Cantonment railway station, says she never thought she would go out to work some day. “No woman in our family works. I am the first woman to go out to work. My sister-in-law who was injured in the attack was also offered a job in the railways like I was, but her husband did not allow her to take it,” says Guddi, whose youngest child Arpita was only three months old then.

#StoriesOfStrength26/11 The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack His dad paralysed, unable to talk, a teenager learns to communicate without speech Shyam Sundar Chaudhary was injured when a taxi exploded on Western Express Highway. His 16-year-old son says they’re still best friends Sixteen-year-old Varun Chaudhary misses the jokes and the parental advice that his father Shyam Sundar gave him nine years ago. This before a bomb explosion in a cab on Western Express Highway on November 26, 2008 left Shyam paralysed. “He is still my best friend and I tell him everything about my life. But I miss having him talk to me,” says Varun, who sits next to his father on the single cot in a two-storey shanty in Sambhaji Nagar, Vile Parle. Today, Shyam’s limbs have wasted. Although he can’t speak, the family now has a new language: eyes. Varun explains: “We tell him what we want to and then to get his opinion, we give him options. We slowly repeat the options until he gives us a series of eye movements or the slightest nod.” This is how the father-son duo decides which Big Boss contestant stands a greater chance of eviction this week. Varun whispers a joke into his father’s ear and Shyam lets out a giggle.

#Sto#StoriesOfStrength1 The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack At 18, this teen has begun to dream big, wants to be an entrepreneur​. ​T​heir father was a Taj staffer who died while herding guests to safety; Rohan and Atharva now want to see their mother happy. ​A​s he turned eighteen this past year, Rohan Kamble has truly coming of age, although his sudden maturity and clarity about his future have nothing to do with that number. When he spoke to The Indian Express in 2016, Rohan was still toying with the idea of a hotel management degree and a job with the Taj group, where his father had died on the night of November 26, 2008. Earlier he’d considered, along with his father, a career in the armed forces but dropped the idea of Sainik School in order to continue living with his mother and younger brother. But this year, Rohan has not just started on his BCom degree alongside classes for the Company Secretaries Course, but says he is certain that what he really wants is to start a firm and be his own boss.

​ ​#StoriesOfStrength26/11 The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack Three Nagpada kids waited years for a holiday, a recent trip to Aksa beach has them overjoyed Their father, a businessman, was visiting Taj that night to help a neighbour find a job; was found dead at the end of the NSG operation For month after the death of her husband Feroz, Amina Khan lost all will to live, she says. It was only the thought of her three children — Irfan, Shifa and Ayan — that made her survive, one day at a time, the 29-year old Nagpada resident says. “I was in a state of shock for months. I do not even remember the weeks after my husband’s death. It was only when I realised that my children need me to be stronger for them that I finally began to accept that I have to go on living,” says Amina. Her husband, a businessman, had accompanied a neighbour to the Taj Hotel to meet a politician from their village in Uttar Pradesh, in the hope that he would recommend a relative for a job. At the end of the NSG operation, Amina learnt that Feroz had not survived.

#Sto#StoriesOfStrength1 The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack Ashwini Shinde, 19, currently a second year student pursuing a BCom degree in Business Accounting and Finance (BAF), is divided between two career options. She can either opt for an MBA, or stick to her original plan of becoming a Chartered Accountant. But one thing the family is certain of — the daughter of Bhagan Shinde, a ward boy at Gokuldas Tejpal Hospital who was shot dead by terrorists on 26/11, has come a long way since the tragedy.
