Once upon a time there was a sweet innocent girl called Shufia. Wait a minute “Once upon a time” sounds like afairy talewith a happy ending . How can I start a blog with this contradiction? However, at every moment of our life we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the harsh real world. Let’s keep that beginning.
Once upon a time there was a sweet innocent girl called shufia. She had gorgeous long hair with a dark feature, in short very attractive. Shufia lived in a small village with her parents and younger sister. They lived an insolvent but happy life. Her father, the driver of SRR local bus , had to live all the weekdays out of the town for work. However, the weekends were like festivals for shufia’s family: having dinner together, good food , talking –laughing and so on.
Things were going pretty smooth until last Wednesday. It was mostly like the other boring Wednesday noon for Shufia. She was walking her way back to school; tired and extremely hungry just thinking about the lunch she was going to have. Suddenly out of nowhere salim came out with a gigantic black man. There was something in his hand may be a bottle. Shufia felt something very bad is going to happen so she started to run but it was too late. The man threw the liquid inside the bottle to her face. She felther whole body was in the sun melting with unbearable pain. She fainted right there.
Salim was in unbearable loathe. Last day he proposed shufia to get married and she denied. So what he is twenty -nine and shufia is sixteen. He was the only son of the richest man in the village so he can have any woman he wants. Salim’s heart was full of revenge. The next day he went to the town to buy some sulfuric acid with a determination to destroy the beautiful face of shufia as well as her life.
The unhappy ending:
I met Shufia a month ago in a small shelter of an NGO for acid victims. My heart was dropped after listening to her story. After the incident shufia’s parents abandon her because of the fear and shame.Their apprehension was who will be going to marry shufia’s sister after this incident. Therefore they left shufia in an NGO and Shufia left her dream to be a doctor.I was very curious about Salim so I did a small investigation and came to know that he moved to India after this incident. As his father had tons of money so the whole incident was tackled by bribe and power.
To encapsulate, I know there is been a strong law against this inhuman crime but still it is not properly implemented in the South –Asian countries. In addition, most of the acid victims are not even considered as humanin the rural communities. I believe there should be establishment special schools as well as work opportunities for them. Because they are precious human being after all.
