The two went to college in different cities. Then in 2007, Sunitha called Jayaprakash on his birthday and the two stayed in touch off and on and then got busy with their lives. But in 2011, Jayaprakash got a call from his friend who informed that Sunitha met with an accident and was in Coimbatore.
Life’s cruel ways
But when he went to visit her in hospital he realized what a cruel game destiny had played with this innocent girl. Jayaprakash describes that he saw Sunitha he was shocked to find that she had no hair, no teeth, no mouth, no nose, a totally disfigured face and was walking like a 90-year-old.
But despite his shock, Jayaprakash chose to propose to Sunitha and expressed his desire to marry her. For him, it was that moment which showed his immense love for her. He shares that initially his mum was surprised but his father backed him and things worked around for both of them.
After this Jayaprakash stood like a rock during all of Sunitha’s surgeries and even shifted to Bangalore. Finally in 2014 after Sunitha proposed to Jayprakash with roses they got engaged and marriage preparations began.
The couple had a tough time both financially and emotionally but they stood for each other. People expressed shock and pity but this did not deter Jayprakash.
Happily ever after
Today they are blessed with two beautiful children and Jayaprakash shares that he feels blessed to have his childhood crush beside him.
People have been mean and insensitive in their remarks and even suggested that Sunitha should not bear children for the fear that children would take after her disfigured face or have shown sympathy for Jayaprakash but the man true to his love feels proud and happy about his decision.
The girl’s side
Sunitha too shared her side of the story on the same platform and talked about how this love changed her life. She shares that she had a happy life but times were tough as the family battled financial constraints and an alcoholic father.
But just as she was on her way to chart her destiny, life took a U-turn and she met with the gruesome accident. While seated on the back of a car she toppled three times as the car met with the accident; all this while her face was out of the window.
Her face was badly disfigured and she underwent some 27 surgeries but even today she has lost some vital senses like smelling and tears. However, during this time Jayakumar came to her life like a breath of fresh air and none of her life’s challenges mattered to him.
Sometimes it is stories such as these that reaffirm our faith in love and no matter what people say about love being materialistic this couple’s story send goosebumps to tell us that real love is above all exterior attributes and physical parameters.
