With These Two Hands


This is the courageous story of Shakuntala Verma, a government social worker in India and her undaunted crusade against child marriages.

All she wanted to do was to save young children from being married off by their families. She spent ten days explaining to a family why this practice was not good. But on the eve of the planned marriage, a man came to her house and hacked at her head and arms, leaving her hands hanging by mere threads of skin and Shakuntala instantly handicapped.
