Synopsis "‘This book proves that no matter who you are, you can always help another in need.’ –Shahrukh Khan A twenty-one-year-old brat of a Delhi girl studying fashion design at Leeds College of Art decides to devote her final-year project to ‘women’s empowerment’. What begins as a passing interest in the lives of acid-attack survivors draws her back to India to shoot a documentary on their lives. An effort to raise funds for one of the survivors propels her into the corrosive, devastating world of acid attacks, proving to be a life-altering experience. Today she runs the award-winning NGO, Make Love Not Scars, which works with victims to raise funds and give them better lives. This is Ria’s story weaved in with the stories of the many women who have helped her grow from a flippant, fickle girl into a woman of substance."
