Mannan Mondal, known as the 'melted man' of Delhi, has turned down radical reconstructive surgery - so he can continue begging to pay for his beloved daughter's wedding. The 50-year-old, who suffers from a type of neurofibromatosis, relies on his shocking appearance to make a living. And despite Indian surgeons offering him the hope of a new face, he has turned it down so he can fund 20-year-old Rasheeda's big day. Mannan, who has no formal education, was born in Kolkata, West Bengal. He was born with severe facial deformities and is missing an eye socket, an ear and most of his teeth - and has been shunned his entire life. He has been out on the streets most of his life and takes home the equivalent of £5 a day. At 18 he found love and now has four children. He travels India attending holy sites to beg at before returning home with his funds to give to his family. Despite his shocking appearance, the tumours growing on his face are not cancerous or painful.
