If you reside in India or are planning to visit India, then it is likely that Agra will be in the list of destinations. Agra is the city of Taj, a symbol of love. Besides Taj, there are a lot of tourist attractions. Agra is a great destination for foodies as well, with a lot of famous food points and restaurants.

But one place that stands out is SHEROES’ Hangout. SHEROES’ Hangout is a café with a cause. It’s a symbol of “love and hate”. Now, you may be thinking what kind of symbol is this? Love is a positive thing and hate is a negative one. We are attracted to positive in life but must not turn our face from the negative. SHEROES’ Hangout, besides being a cafe provides jobs to acid attack survivors. The people behind this café are an NGO named Stop Acid Attacks.
