AN Indian acid attack victim who was left blinded and with a melted face by a scorned admirer has found the love of her life – from her hospital bed.

Pramodini Roul, was just 15-years-old when a paramilitary soldier riding on motorbike threw acid at her because she had rejected his marriage proposal.

The 25-year-old survivor, known as Rani or queen by her family, was a 10th grade student had been returning from taking an exam with her cousin when the 28-year-old spurned lover doused her with the corrosive element.

Rani spent four months in intensive car 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 a decade, undergoing five reconstructive surgeries including one to correct vision in her left eye by some degree.

But now Rani says she has finally found a reason to live happily – her boyfriend Saroj Kumar Sahoo.

The two met while Rani was in hospital and have been living together for a year in New Delhi – and are now planning to get married.

Rani says: “Saroj really treats me like a queen.

“He loves me like the way I am. He always encourages me to live life happily.

“I feel very lucky to have him. He is very understanding and is always there for me.

“It always feels good to be loved and be assured of having a partner who loves and recognises the goodness in you.”

Rani and Saroj met in March 2014 at a private hospital where she was admitted for the treatment for the pus-filled infection ravaging her legs

The skin from her legs was used for grafting but untimely discharge from the hospital caused infection in her half treated wounds that began secreting puss.

Doctors had told her mother that Rani would need at least four years before she can walk again.

Saroj, 26, started visiting Rani everyday to boost her morale, eventually quitting his job and spending eight hours a day to look after her.

She said: “I had already lost my eyesight and the thought of being bedridden was an added woe.

“But Saroj did not lose hope. He would encourage me everyday, motivating me to be positive and have hopes.”
