Her scarred face speaks of the injustice and cruelty she was subjected to.
Never had she thought that spurning the advances of a classmate would result into a scarred face and battered soul. She still wakes up at night screaming as she feels the burning sensation of acid being thrown on her face. This scarred face tells the story of her indomitable spirit. She promised herself that she will not let her attacker have the satisfaction of triumph. She recovered and was back in the college with a clear aim. Her scarred face was no more her weakness but her motivation. She recalls those moments proudly to the horde of journalists gathered at her house to interview the topper of IAS exam.
