Look Fizzy

Look Fizzy

The significance of skin deep – something on the surface, generally known to be superficial…sometimes however the surface has the story written all over it…yes, there is race and the cultural stigma that goes along with it in some parts of the world…but how do you explain women having their faces burned with acid by men. Men who think that somehow these women do not deserve their own skin? What I thought was an occasional occurrence seems to be rather common place, evident from a write up on women who fought back against the misfortune of having their faces disfigured by running a café in the Taj Mahal complex, thus forging their financial independence. They came to power by becoming successful at what they did – embracing their own skin, burns and all!
