Indian woman blinded and badly burnt in acid attack finds love in hospital

5a042147c7ebfAn Indian woman who suffered an acid attack that left her with horrific burns to her face and blind in both eyes has found the love of her life from her hospital bed.

At age 15, Pramodini Roul was bathed with acid by a paramilitary soldier on a bike because she rejected his marriage proposal. She was returning from taking an exam with her cousin when the 28-year-old man doused her with the corrosive element, melting away her face.

The survivor, who is fondly called Rani or “Queen” by her family, spent four months in ICU immediately after the incident and later was bedridden for four years at her house in Odisha in eastern India while her widowed mother took care of her alone, bandaging her wounds. She suffered pain for almost 10 years, undergoing five reconstructive surgeries including one to correct vision in her left eye by some degree. She also suffered depression throughout these years but she has now found a reason to smile again.
