An Indian woman who was the victim of a horriffic acid attack when she was a teenager has won $70,000 in India’s version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The show’s host said ‘The nation salutes her as do all of us, but simultaneously hangs its head in shame for this dastardly act.’ In 2003 Sonali was left partially blind and deaf after she rejected a boy’s advances and he and his mates later broke into her house and doused her with acid while she slept. Since the attack she has received no state funding for her 22 operations nor have her attacker’s been properly punished (each only receiving 4 months jail). Her family sold their land and mother’s jewellery to pay for the numerous operations. The winnings will help pay for further plastic surgery.

There were also vultures everywhere after my cash. I started to see what people were really like,’.Carroll now lives off £42 a week in jobseeker’s allowance after declaring himself bankrupt.
Well I’ll be, a British bus driver from Lancashire must be the luckiest man in England, while his ex must be the damned unluckiest. After receiving confirmation of his divorce through the post Kevin Halstead had a drink with his mates and bought himself a lottery ticket in celebration. Of course we all know what happens next, he friggin won £2,302,668. Had he bought it prior to the divorce papers coming through he could have been forced to pay his ex half.Oh but before you go making fun of his ex, she said on hearing the news “It couldn’t have happened to a nicer bloke. I wish him all the luck in the world – he deserves it.” Hmm, that’s what I would be saying too…suck, suck, suck.
