In 2016, Sahar Gharachorlou stood by the window with an official order to leave India in her hands.
This was the second time she was being implicated in a false case by her ex-husband. Sahar, originally from Iran, had been living in India for 16 years and her Indian citizenship had already been approved. The order, demanding her to leave the country, came as a blow!
As Sahar gazed outside the window, she observed how the forceful wind was unable to move a leaf on a plant in her balcony. Sahar took this as a sign and decided to fight as gracefully & bravely as the leaf.
Sahar’s mission became to live with dignity, prove her innocence and claim her basic right of being able to express her truth. She wanted to do it not just for herself but also to lay the path for other women who might be facing injustice. She moved High Court against the order. Sahar knew the legal battle would be grueling and would be accompanied by incessant judgement & fault-finding by society. She realized that to face this formidable challenge, she had to transform herself.
SAHAR DECIDED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF HER LIFE AND TURN HER BATTLES INTO A PLATFORM FOR LEARNING & EVOLVING.
She was all alone but determined to enjoy the fight. The result was no longer important, as long as she showed up with all her might. Sahar resolved that as a dignified woman, she didn’t need anyone’s approval. She didn’t know if she would win in court but no one could stop her from winning in spirit. She went ahead and countered the false allegations. Ruling by the High court finally brought justice!
NOT ONLY WAS SAHAR GRANTED THE INDIAN CITIZENSHIP, SHE WAS ALSO HONORED FOR OFFERING A DECADE OF EXTRAORDINARY SOCIAL SERVICE TO THE PEOPLE OF INDIA.
Sahar is now an accomplished Life coach & Master Trainer who has worked with over 8000 people, helping them to move from fear to faith and transform their lives. She is the author of “Twice Born” through which she shares her inspiring life story.
