Braveheart!!


 
She had indeed come a long way from the scared and scarred little teenager who had literally seen her world melt down before her eyes to be the fearless woman who looked the brutal world in the eye. While it was still difficult for her to handle intrusive remarks people made, even hurtful at times, it was not hard to anticipate them. Steely resolve now reflected in the once dream-lit eyes on a surprisingly serene face, a face one could never forget, for it still bore marks of the acid attack by a monster who respected neither humanity nor womanhood.


This post is shared with 3WW and the words for this week are Anticipate,  Fearless & Serene

  1. Reshma,you have beautifully created such a touchy and emotional story in so few words. When will such treacherous attacks on women come to an end?

    1. Thank you for your kind words Ushaji.It is unfortunate that we are not doing much to deter monsters in our society. It is something that has been silently burning down many lives...

  2. These attackers should be tortured ... sadly, the law isn't strict enough to stop crimes.

    1. Very true Amrit, even the existing laws aren't enforced properly and the apathy of the authorities only encourages more beasts...
