(Agra) “I was attacked in 2008 by my stepmother. She always wanted to kill me since my childhood. 
I have been associated with this campaign against acid attacks from the time it was first initiated in 2013. Since then I have been working for the campaign and at this cafe. I am the assistant manager here. I also used to run a boutique that I planned to restart soon.”

(Agra) “There was a boy who liked me. But it was one sided. I never liked him back and so he threw acid at me. This happened over 20 years ago. My family members including the man I was engaged to then were very supportive. Eventually, my fiancé and I got married. Presently, everything is fine at home. I enjoy working here so much that if I skip a single day here, I miss it a lot.”
