Being born albino is a difficult fate for anyone, with the side effects of increased sensitivity to light and poor vision that go hand in hand with the condition, but for this Indian family of 10, the prejudice has been the hardest part. In Southern India, the Pullan family faced much hardship and prejudice, so they moved to the more diverse and accepting city of Delhi, where they are often mistaken for foreigners and called “angrez” which means English. In spite of the adversity they’ve faced, Mother Mani Pullan considers their condition “a gift from God.” The family of 10 albinos will soon be replacing a Canadian-American family of 6 for the title of “World’s Biggest Albino Family” in the record books.
Rosetauri (50) and his wife Mani (45) wed in an arranged marriage in 1983 and gave birth to six children: sons Shankar (24), Vijay (25), and Ramkishan (19) and daughters Renu (23), Deepa (21), and Pooja (18). Renu married an albino man named Rosheh (27) and the two have a son named Dharamraj (2). All ten members of the family live together in a one bedroom flat and “are looking forward to global recognition as the world’s biggest albino family.” Albinism is a condition that affects around 1 in 17,000 people.
