Not only that she also suffered from gallstones. In the aftermath of a devastating earthquake, Samjhana found herself amidst the wreckage of her once sturdy home. As she stood amidst the debris, a sense of despair and uncertainty enveloped her.

Together, they meticulously rebuilt her broken house, brick by brick, symbolizing the gradual process of healing and progress. The experience taught her valuable lessons in resilience, patience, and the power of community. Samjhana embarked on a journey of transformation. As children, she envisions herself becoming a nurse.
