Looking beyond an acid attack

On November 30, 2012 The New Indian Express carried a story “Acid attack victim may never see light” about Vinodhini, the young woman who had been attacked by a stalker in Karaikudi. Times of India reported the same story that day, but as it has done throughout its reporting on this case, used Vinodhini’s condition as a peg to explore other issues. In this case, “Rehabilitation often eludes victims of acid attacks” explored the long-term effects of such attacks, the way it scars the victim’s lives in more ways than one and raises the important issue of rehabilitation for the victims of such attacks. This is commendable as while updating the readers on Vinodhini’s case is important, it is equally important to report on as many aspects of such a case as possible.
