Wedding bells rang for Sonali Mukherjee on the auspicious new year feast of Poila Boishakh.
Victim of 2012 acid attack, Sonali is heading for the life of her dreams with her better half, Chittaranjan, who first contacted Sonali 9 months ago on Facebook.
“Yes, life has come full circle indeed. My husband Chittaranjan is an electrical engineer from Jamshedpur who works at the Busan steel plant in Orissa. He saw me in a crime feature on television and was intrigued by my story. Nine months ago he contacted me through social media and we began speaking over the telephone. He part-funded my treatment from his salary as well. We met for the first time five months ago and he later proposed marriage.”
“My parents were very happy and gave their blessings readily, so we performed a court marriage on April 15. His relatives are partly supportive. I hope to win them over with love and humility,”
