Acid Attack Victim Recalls Horrifying Moment She Was Left Disfigured By Three Men

Life offers no certainties. You never know what will happen the next moment. Whatever it is, it is better to look for the reasons to gallop the hardships. Leading a meaningful and inspirational life is a real value to humanity.

The life story of Indian woman 29-year-old Sonali Mukherjee left me with a variety of deep thoughts. Her sufferings and the turning point she chose in her life cultivate the courage in every single person's heart. 13 years ago, three men drenched her with acid that left her blind and disfigured. That was the revenge that she rejected their demands. She struggled a lot with her darken life and even attempted to kill herself.
