The picture shows the hopefulness of an Acid Attack Survivor, 'Neetu'. The culprit was her own father who poured acid own his own wife and her. It was a moment's act, however the effects have lasted ever since. This tragic incident has not only disfigured her, but has also caused some serious internal injuries, leaving Neetu sightless. Neetu has become part of an NGO where apart from Neetu, many other survivors also work together in a very positive & cordial environment, which brings positivity in their lives.
