India group helps vitiligo patients find love

Quest for matrimonial perfection marginalises millions of Indians with vitiligo, a misunderstood skin condition.

    Most brides and grooms marry people their families choose for them in India.
     
    Relatives often specify that Mr or Miss Right must come from a good family, have a decent job, and fair skin, but sufferers of vitiligo struggle to navigate India's marriage market.
