You can apply for divorce individually on the grounds of cruelty but you are required to prove such mental tortures and physical cruelties before the court. Regarding alimony, you can get for which you have to procure title documents of your husband's properties and his income structure. Important thing you needs to decide is the custody of your two daughters, think before you proceed.

You can file a petition under sec.13 of Hindu Marriage Act for divorce. If his unsoundness of mind is incurable you can file divorce on that ground alone. Otherwise you can file petition for divorce on the cruelty also. You can also claim permanent alimony.
