You can give them trouble, you can give them pain but you cannot take their hearts away. In spite of all the brutal agonies some people face, they always fight back and inspire others to get through this phase called life.
They have endured and left behind such evils that when they speak, you do nothing but listen and learn from their experience. One such brave heart is Resham Khan, who had her world turned upside down when a stranger threw acid on her when she was celebrating her 21st Birthday.
I have got up today and decided I have gave myself more than enough time to be hidden away and feeling sorry for myself.

The acid attack could have taken her spirit away and maimed her for life but she fought back and fought back strong. She has been brave since the day it happened and has been documenting her fears and apprehensions in blogs.
But it was not an easy ride to normalcy. Initially she feared going to local shops and felt terrified by what would people think of her. She thought she would never look the same.
“Today I was too petrified to walk to my local shop. Too scared to face the world. Too scared of the looks I might get. Too scared to tackle the question “how are you”. Just too scared. That’s all I’ve been. Terrified and reluctant. My life on pause, frozen with fear,” she recounted.
But Resham didn’t lose hope and carried on her long journey to recovery. She recently shared her after recovery pictures on the eve of Eid and by Gods grace, she is more beautiful than ever.
