Sheela, an acid attack victim shared her feelings in an interview ,"This feels like our own world, where we can learn anything we want without stigma, hesitation and unease. I feel like there is hope for future now that we have a space where we can have a second shot for living our lives as well as earning a dignified living. We used to feel like we have been sitting at one place for years, behind closed doors. People used to come and go but for the first time we feel like someone has extended their hand and wants to move forward with us. I believe we will find our place in society again."
