Acid attack survivors in India model new clothing range for powerful photoshoot

Survivors of acid attacks in India have become the face of a new clothing range designed by a woman who had acid thrown in her face while she was asleep four years ago.Delhi-based designer Rupa and her friends Rita, Sonam, Laxmi and Chanchal modelled the clothes from her new range, Rupa Designs, for photographer Rahul Saharan.

Rupa suffered extensive injuries when her stepmother threw acid in her face while she was sleeping in 2008.

She was allegedly left without any medical aid for six hours before her uncle found her and transported her to hospital, where she underwent eleven operations and spent three months being cared for.

this is so powerful

Bless them and their beautiful spirits

I found empirical support for the idea that the Harry Potter series influenced the political values and perspectives of the generation that came of age with these books. Reading the books correlated with greater levels of acceptance for out-groups, higher political tolerance, less predisposition to authoritarianism, greater support for equality, and greater opposition to the use of violence and torture. As Harry Potter fans will have noted, these are major themes repeated throughout the series. These correlations remained significant even when applying more sophisticated statistical analyses – when controlling for, among other things, parental influence.

"Harry Potter did help shape the political culture of a generation" by Anthony Gierzynski (The Conversation)

Totally fascinating research into how reading shapes political beliefs.

‘I was with Charlotte sixteen years, on and off,’ said Strike, picking up his second burger. ‘Mostly off. She hated my job. It’s what kept breaking us up – one of the things that kept breaking us up,’ he corrected himself, scrupulously honest. ‘She couldn’t understand a vocation. Some people can’t; at best, work’s about status and pay cheques for them, it hasn’t got value in itself.’

alliecat-person:

I’m reading “The Silkworm” right now (sequel to “The Cuckoo’s Calling”) and I have to say that for all of the grief JK Rowling gets for allegedly not being a good writer stylistically, I happen to find her style really enjoyable and engaging. I think she’s a very astute observer of social inanities—this is even more apparent in her “adult” books—and her wry style works perfectly for exposing that without destroying all sympathy for the characters.

I love that the missing person in this case is a douchebag white male author who thinks he’s God’s gift to literature but isn’t. Rowling totally gets it, and I basically crack up constantly when reading this series.

People who think that she’s only good at writing fantastical adventure stories are really missing a lot.

YEAH SO i am reading J. K. Rowling’s newest book The Silkworm because i loved the last Cormoran Strike book (The Cuckoo’s Calling) but this one is loaded with so much gratuitous misogyny and i just

like virtually every woman in this book is an ugly shrill harpy and LITERALLY every woman is stupid. even the ones ol’ Smart Tough Manly Man Male Protag supposedly likes. like, “she was pretty and clever, yet vapid and boring, with all her womanly chatter and petty dull femininity.”

i am so disappointed.

#The Silkworm #most of the male characters are rather unpleasant too #but still
