Before Ambika was born, it was almost sure she would be a girl. But when the time came, that was not the case. Through the years, Ambika found her calling in the temple her family frequented. No one would have guessed that a part of her weekly routine would become such a pivotal moment, changing the course of her life. She knew she was meant to be a girl.
