As every cloud has a silver lining, the show that she participated in brought her in front of Chittaranjan Tiwari, an audience, who gave his heart to her instantly. A friend request on facebook and regular conversation later they decided to get married following all the Hindu rituals of marriage in 2015. What more?

The mindless person threw acid on her stealing from her the dream of a life that everyone desires. Nitish, to whom she was getting married with realized and understood that he was capable enough to give this girl a happy life and that’s what he did.

These stories make anyone belief in love and God again and again. The bravery of these women to face the world as they are is incredible. The support they receive from their families and loved ones will always make them stand tall. There are several such women who don’t get recognition and a happy life after these incidents but the only thing they have after all is gone is their willingness to live and their unmatchable courage.
