Book Review

The book will take you on a journey which was a roller coaster ride. There are moments in the book that could make you sad and angry and can leave you in grief. But it conveys ‘Hope’.  A hope that can change your entire your life. It tells you the power of grit and focus.

The book is divided into 22 chapters and after finishing every chapter, you will crave for more. Ria’s journey wasn’t a bed of roses. It had its fair share of thrones. She had to fight ageism and sexism to establish herself.  In her book, she talks about her journey. How the idea came and when did she start working on Acid Attack Survivors project seriously. What all hurdles she faced and how she finally came out as a winner.  The book throws light on a various aspect of Ria’s journey.  One of my favorite chapters in the book is Chapter 14, Kanta: The Fighter. Well, the book will also serve you humorous content too so that’s a bonus, isn’t?

During a candid conversation, Ria said, “I feel lucky that I got my calling at a very young age. But not everybody gets that chance. A lot of times, we have an idea but we don’t know how to execute it.  Above all, it is completely fine to sometimes feel directionless and clueless in life. When I started off my journey I also didn’t how to execute my idea. But I kept one thing constant and that was my ‘Focus’.  After that, things automatically started falling into place.”

 Ria’s journey is closely woven with the stories of many other women who helped her to grow. The book also talks about how it is okay to feel directionless sometimes in life. It talks about the power that lies in you to bring a change.  The book will also guide you on how you can help acid attack survivors.
