By April 2001, Laila is 23 years old and, after years of suffering abuse and hunger, is hardly fazed  when she hears the news the Taliban have destroyed the Buddhas of Bamiyan valley. Laila is more  distraught by the fact that she's forced to put Aziza in an orphanage because Rasheed is unable to  earn enough to feed all of them. Laila cannot bear to tell Aziza the truth, so she tells her the orphanage is a special school. Rasheed,  Mariam, and Laila walk with Aziza to the orphanage, but Rasheed stops a few blocks short, leaving  the two women to walk the rest of the way with Aziza.. Aziza pesters them with questions to hide her  growing anxiety. They meet with Zaman, the director, and he interviews Laila while Mariam entertains Aziza in the  hall. Laila finds it odd as she tells a lie that's also the truth: that Aziza's father is dead. Zaman

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
