    from Pune, Maharashtra

My name is Rinku Kumawat. I have been living in Pune for the last 21 years. I am studying SY BCA at Modern College. In my free time, I have the usual pursuits like all girls my age, for example reading and listening to music and also love to make Mandala designs. Belonging to Pali district in Rajasthan, I come from a Marwari society where girls are forced to get married the day they turn 18. There are many girls who feel they can do wonders in their lives but due to gender discrimination even today in our society, they end up being only a housewife. I want to bring this change to our community by setting an example, in order to transform their thinking.

Since my school days, I have desired to bring this change by achieving something big! I have always dreamt of joining the Indian Air Force as a Flying Officer. Today wearing that uniform has become my passion. By doing this I aim to set an example for other girls to do something in life, to create their own identity. I am not sure whether I will be able to realize this dream as there are a lot of terms and conditions that need to be fulfilled for joining the defense services. However, I wish to attempt it at least once with full dedication.
I am narrating my story in a few words to get help for my Lasik surgery through this platform. Lasik surgery referred to as laser eye surgery/ laser vision correction is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. It is the best known and most commonly performed laser refractive surgery to correct vision problems in people. Lasik surgery is a must for me to join as a flying officer as my eyesight needs correcting so that I can let go of my spectacles. If I failed to get selected in the flying branch by any chance, still I can apply as Air traffic controller or an engineer in the ground duty branch as well after my Lasik surgery.

I come from a middle-class family of four where my father has a grocery shop, and my mother is a housewife. My brother, who is elder to me, is a pharmacist. I don't want to trouble my parents as they have already taken care of medical expenses during my thyroid surgeries. I want to collect these funds with your help, so that I can be eligible to attempt the AFCAT exam for the flying branch. Once I see myself achieving my vision, I plan to help other girls in their careers. I want to see them make this society a beautiful place. I want to become an inspiration for girls in our community because girls are no less in any field. They can do whatever they want to if they dream!

If you are donating for this, I bet you are not just donating for me, but you are presenting for all such students who have sacrificed their ambitions due to money and social process. If you are even sharing this, you are contributing to a more significant cause. You are becoming a part of a movement to empower many others like me. Becoming an officer would lead me to give it back to my community and well-wishers. Your one small contribution will provide a huge opportunity to help our country move forward in step with the times. I would love to say the heartiest thank you for taking out your precious time and going through my story. Thank you!
