Rosha- by Vishal Bhandari

The uncertainties of life and unpredictability of fate turn Rosha\\\'s life into an unthinkable nightmare on her fourteenth birthday, when her father, an Afghan royal, is shot dead in his own courtyard. With the perilous circumstances prevailing in Afghanistan, Rosha is made to surrender her nubile self as a child-bride to someone as old as her father. She is forcefully exiled to Saudi Arabia to serve her wealthy master and become a part of his populous harem.


Such a drastic turn could have meant to be a dead-end to Rosha\\\'s dreams and aspirations. But she chooses to struggle and her pursuit for answers takes her through continents, on a journey, on which she finds answers to most of her questions. She had left her nation as a slave and after being applauded as a hero elsewhere, she still longs to return to her land with respect and dignity that she and many like her deserve.
