An Indian family have broken the Guinness Book of Records as the largest albino family.
The Pullans, a family-of-ten fromDelhi, have overcome prejudices and hardships in their home country because of their pale skin and white-blonde hair.
Roseturai Pullan and his wife Mani married in 1983 and bore eight children – sons Vijay, 25, Shankar, 24 and Ramkishan, 19, and daughters Renu, 23, Deepa, 21 and Pooja, 18, who all inherited their albino genes.
The family, who suffer from poor eye sight because of their ‘albinoism’, have been called ‘angrez’ – which means White in English – byDelhilocals.
Mr Pullan told the tabloid that it was “hard for people to understand that we’re born and bred Indian.”
The couple told the Sun newspaper that their parents felt it was best that they marry because they “were the same.”
They added, “In South Asian we were told that if you marry a person with albinism, it signals good luck and riches.”
The family, currently living in a poor cramped home, are hopeful that their title in the iconic records book will bring them some fortune and fame.
