In these modern day where a new society rules, many don’t believe no more in any devil’s things. But what if there is still such kind of event like this eight year old Indian boy who was been dubbed as son of an evil.
An 8-year-old boy named Kaleem is suffering from a mysterious condition that even doctors can’t identify. His hand weighs around 8 kilograms each and 13 inches in length each. Kaleem was born with this condition. From the moment he was born and her mother saw him, she knew that there was something wrong with him.
Kaleem hasn’t been brought to the hospital because of the family’s status in life. His father is working so hard to provide for their family but it’s not enough to bring Kaleem to a doctor.
He doesn’t go to school because other kids are scared of his hands. His life is made even harder by cruel bullies who make fun of him.
“Many of them used to bully me for my deformity. They would say ‘let’s beat up the kid with the large hands. Some of them have actually beaten me and would go after me often,” one of Kaleem’s experiences.
Because of Kaleem’s condition, it gives him a hard time to do even the most basic things such as eating and drinking water.
“I find it difficult to put on my clothes, button my shirt and pull up my pants. But I don’t know if I want doctors to operate on my hands. They would have to make me unconscious and then they would cut me open,” he said.
A doctor at a local hospital said the cause of the deformity was unknown but it could be either lymphangioma or hamartoma. Apart from his giant hands, Kaleem is otherwise healthy although the increased pressure on his cardiovascular system could potentially shorten his life.
However, a good thing happened that Kaleems’s story went viral and being helped financially and by medical experts in South India. He was also featured on Channel 5 documentary program and being taken for a life – changing surgery.
