Our understanding of a chemical burn can ever be very limited as we ourselves have never experienced anything beyond a burn from a hot liquid or a hot vessel.

In the cultural set up that we have grown up around us, it becomes very difficult for the victim girls to get back to life as it was before the attack. Their entire family suffers the dreadful consequences of such a brutal crime.
