© Thinkworks Pvt Ltd – The story of Reshma Qureishi is a story of shame for the entire country. She was 17 years old when her brother-in-law threw acid on her, completely disfiguring her face and her body. Reshma is a metaphor for a huge faultline in our society — despite the large numbers in which it happens, acid burning is still not the central conversation it should be. In 4 years, Reshma retrieved herself from the barbarism of the attack and took the world by storm. She changed the narrative around herself, walked the ramp in New York fashion week, became the face against acid burning across the world. Author Tania Singh, celebrates her story.
