These are the last few notes that 23-year-old Preeti scribbled while she battled for life in a Mumbai hospital after a brutal acid attack on 2nd May, 2013.
Preeti was in the hospital for nearly a month but despite all her pain and suffering she was worried about her family and future. She knew that her dream to become a nurse was shattered.
After the sudden acid attack on her, Preeti feared for the security of her cousins. In a note to her aunt she said that she never wanted them to meet a similar fate.
Being a nurse she knew that her treatment wouldn't be cheap. She wanted to know who was bearing the expenses of the hospital and how long would it take for her to be discharged.
She wrote that she no longer wanted to look pretty she just wanted to go home to her family. She knew that her mother would be tensed and everyone at home would be worried.
She had not idea who that man was? Why did he attack her? What did he want from her and why did he ruin her life? All she wanted was for him to be caught.
