RUPA

Our person of the week is Rupa, who is an acid attack survivor. Rupa hails from a village near Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. In 2008, her step mother poured acid on her face when she was sleeping, because she did not want to spend money on her wedding. When even her father refused to support her, Rupa decided to abandon her family, leave behind her last name, and build her own identity. Today she runs her boutique at the Sheroes Hangout, a cafe in Agra, with four other acid attack survivors.
