The Day AILA Came

Updated: 2 days ago

The truth could be a bitter pill, especially when it is one that is least expected and discovering the truth of being adopted ends up tearing one’s soul given that it is an unanticipated thought. Such pain sooner or later pushes individuals to search for their origins and more often than not, this journey raises more doubts than it resolves. No matter how ideal the choices of the past are, they never seem acceptable and the intentions, no matter how good - are never justifiable.

“The Day AILA Came” by Manognya Bethapudi is the journey of a youngster witnessing the bittersweet nature of life while learning the importance of valuing one’s own existence and identity no matter how terrible events turn out to be.
