Hi readers,
I know I am posting after a long time. Well today I have a different as well as a same topic to discuss here. I know my points may contradict ones beliefs so please I'm saying sorry for that in advance itself. 

Yesterday I had a chance, one I always dreamed of, to talk to a family member of an acid attack victim TUBA TUBASSUM, a 15 year old girl from Siwan, Bihar, India. She wanted to be a doctor but now she is an acid attack victim and getting her treatment. Acid was splashed on her by predators while she was going to attend her tuition classes which left her with burnt face, one eye blinded & other complication and she needs multiple surgeries. You may refer to the link that follows to know more about TUBA.


Yesterday while talking to her maternal uncle I felt the pain of the family undergoing these changes. It must be a really hard time for them. But, the thing I liked most about the family of these victims' is their positivism, a hope which is alive deep in their heart. I inquired about well being of TUBA to which his uncle said Thank you! I asked him not to say thank you as humanity is the only thing which asked me to support her. Although from different religion, different regions we all are humans with same red fluid flowing through our blood vessels so why to take religion as a barrier. Religion is to believe and follow. A very line in national song of INDIA teach us "MAZHAB NHI SIKHATA AAPAS MEIN BER RAKHNA" ( religion does not teach us to envy each other). There is no use of barricading in name of religion.
Tuba is someone I am very close to now. She is like a sister. I wish I could pay her a visit and tell her personally that I'M THERE WITH HER. SHE IS NOT ALONE.
She will be here next month, in Delhi as she has to see her doctors. If possible, I'll go and meet her.

It is not just Tuba who is waiting for justice to come her way.
Let's see what Indian judiciary and Politics do to help them all.
Till then we can just pray. It is my request, no matter what part of world you belong to, no matter if you know both of us ( tuba and me) pray for Tuba to get well soon.


  1. All human beings are interconnected, one with all other elements in creation.

    1. As I said above that we have same red fluid flowing through our blood vessels and these barriers are just political. No HOLY BOOK teach us to discriminate on the basis of religion, caste and creed.
