Neha Tariq


I lost my father when I was only seven years old. At that time I didn’t know what I have lost, but with the passage of time I came to realize that massive loss. My mother was the only person who stood by us in every difficulty. She was not highly educated but still she started her job as a clerk on a low wage just to support us and tried her level best to fulfill our needs. No one can compete her efforts which she made for us, and she is the best thing in my life. At time of hardships, failures and difficulties I always have her standing beside me. Whenever I fall she gave me her hand and helped me getting up. I always wanted to be the reason of her smile. I have two siblings and both of them are highly talented and I was always the dumb child. Sometimes that made me feel that I’ll not be able to come up to my mother’s expectations but then again she became my inspiration and I started working hard to achieve my targets. I burnt the midnight oil and then got same marks as my elder sister in matric. That was a moment of pride for my mother and that happiness on her face paid off all my efforts. I just want to say her proudly that Neha is my daughter!
