Several Tragedies Led to Arslan’s Own Revolutionary Future

There were no other children there, and tragedy struck again two years later when both his uncle and grandfather died. Arslan persevered and passed his matric exams at 14, and at 16 he was studying computer sciences.
Then, another death at 16 when his last remaining relative, his aunt, also died, thus leaving Arslan alone in the world. However, he was not to let that define him and decided it was not the end of the world since he was still alive and knew he had to step out of his comfort zone and move on.
