Survivors of acid attack walked the ramp in a unique fashion show at the India Showcase week. The show was organised by the Cocoona Centre for Aesthetic Transformation to empower acid attack survivors who are often ignored by the society.

Acid attacks are very common in India. Though there are strict laws to counter acid attacks, they are still on the rise. The fashion show was followed by a motivational talk by Dr. Sanjay Parashar, founder of Cocoona Centre for Aesthetic Transformation and a renowned plastic surgeon based out of Dubai. He has been helping acid attack victims since long in Afghanistan and Iraq and now wishes to do the same in India. He says that this menace must be eliminated not just by strict implementation of laws but also by fighting patriarchy that justifies violence against women(as per source).

In his words:

“Through reconstruction surgery today, we have the scientific and medical wherewithal to reconstruct the skin, eyes, nose, ears and lips of acid attack victims, and restore their hopes and aspirations of having a normal life. As a plastic surgery centre, we are looking forward to tie up with social organizations working in this field to help acid attack victims in India.”
