Rosetauri(right) and Mani (left) wed in an arranged marriage in 1983, but Mani now describes her family's albinism as a 'Gift from God.'
A white-skinned Indian couple are set to enter the record books along with their offspring, after becoming the world's biggest albino family. The ten members of the Pullan family, headed by Rosetauri, 50, and his wife Mani, 45, all have the extremely pale skin and near-white hair of albinos. But despite years of prejudice and suffering the poor vision which is a side effect of the condition, the Pullans and their eight other family members are set to land a Guinness World Record.
The Pullan children Shankar, 24, Ramkishan, 19, and Vijay, 25 (back row), along with daughters Deepa, 21 (left) and Pooja, 18 (right) all inherited albinismn from their father Rosetauri and mother Mani (centre).
Hardship: Mani Pullan, pictured in purple, says her family which includes daughters Deepa (left) and Pooja (right) have had to battle prejudice in India as albinos.
The Pullans, who are all albino, live in a small one-bedroom flat in Delhi.
The Pullans say they have endured a lot of prejudice as people find it hard to understand they are 'born and bred in India.'
The Pullan family say that despite their condition, they are looking forward to global recognition as the world's biggest albino family.
