    This fundraiser will benefit

    Chhanv Foundation

    from Agra, Uttar Pradesh

I turned 40 on December 06, 2018 and this past one year has been a year of lot of transformations - and a journey of self exploration... of pushing the thresholds of my comfort to shake the apathetic bubble we often develop to preserve ourselves when in face of inhumane actions and incidents! Of all the human rights crisis currently plaguing our planet, one of the most profoundly compelling is the spirit of SHEROES... I salute these Acid Attack Survivors for their beauty and courage in face of the debasing acts of cowards!! And as a way of celebrating my birthday, I have set up this fundraising campaign and I have chosen Chhanv Foundation and The Sheroes Cafe  as a beneficiary of my fundraising activity.

As a pledge to my campaign, I shaved my head on my 40th Birthday, to challenge my vanity, the current standards of beauty and also as a reminder that the outwardly measures of beauty are transient... beauty is not only to be seen but also to be felt... additionally, with my shaved head,  I wish to remind those who may see me and feel uncomfortable with my shaved head, that that is only a temporary state.... the scars of the Acid Attack Survivors are often permanent... certainly the ones on their soul... and yet they rise from those ashes as phoenix....facing the world with a ferocious grace... through  the discomfort caused by seeing me bald, I hope to urge my friends and family and my community and network to take a small step .. to take a stand to stop acid attack, to begin a process of healing and hopefully, each small step may bring a tide of change in one wave of support after the other!!
