The book “The Dressmaker of Khair Khana ” is truly a source of inspiration. The book is filled with so much hope and courage that it automatically inculcates positivity in you.
The book gives us a glimpse of life of Afghanis under Taliban rule. It is the real story of Kamlia Siddiqui who just after her graduation comes to know about the coming of Taliban. Women were barred from working but Kamila , an extraordinary women she is , doesn’t lose hope and starts making dresses for local traders secretively. She carried a bag full of risks everytime she walked out of her house , but never did she lose her bravery. Soon her business grew and she employed women from neighbour as well.
More and more women like Kamila are needed to uplift women in the society. What she did was exemplary. Not only was she the breadearner of her family , but she was a ray of hope among darkness in the life of so many women.
I would also thank the author , Gayle Tzemach Lemmon who undertook the risk of visiting the place and covering this story for all of us.
The book celebrates womanhood. It tell us in precise manner that woth hope and courage you can succeed no matter what the condition is. It os a book which needs to be passed among all the people in world. It is a book to cherish , to love and to learn.
