SONALI Mukherjee, 27, is now a rupee millionaire! (That’s £28,200.) Miss Mukherjee won her cash on TV’s  Kaun Banega Crorepati , the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? . The other notable thing about Sonali Mukherjee is that she is badly scarred. In 2003, men broke into her home in Dhanbad poured acid on her face. The attack left her partially blind and deaf. She has no eyelids.
The three men were jailed. For three years. They are now free. Sonali Mukherjee wanted to die. She wanted to be euthanised.
As she says:
“I’ve had 22 operations and nine more are remaining, so that at least my eyes and ears are functional. If I recover, I want to help people like me. In my nine years of struggle, I have faced a lot. I know the kind of difficulties we have to face, with no help from any quarter.” 
Her story became front-page news. And then she was invited to appear on the TV show.
