When a man harbouring one-sided love tried to burn her face with acid, this woman found love in someone who accepted her for who she is.
When it comes to love, there are no boundaries or barriers that it does not break. A recent story published by a Facebook page named Humans of India proves this.
The short but beautiful post has garnered thousands of positive reactions from across all corners of the world for its simple message — love conquers all.
