Boy With A Hairy Tail Worshiped As A God In India
An eight-year-old boy is being worshipped in an Indian village after growing a long hairy tail. Dulha Singh was born with a patch of hair on his lower back with locals believing that he is an incarnation of Hanuman – a monkey like God. The young boy lives with his uncle Sahib Singh and aunt Majeer Kaur in Amritsar, Punjab.
Little Dulha says that he doesn’t mind the tail and that he would leave it, believing it’s a gift from God. “Some kids used to make fun of my tail. They are now my friends and do not tease me anymore.” admits Dulha, obviously feeling the burden of fame.
The uncle told media that Dulha’s mother decided to cut his tail when he was younger, but unfortunately she died before she had the chance. Now that Dulha is in his custody, he decided not to cut it and people from the surrounding villages are flocking to see the incarnation of the Monkey God and pray. People used to travel hundreds of miles to seek blessings by touching his tail.
It is nice to see he is happy in his own skin and doesn't care if he is different, that is what makes him special! Dulha also has a knack for climbing trees, which villagers see as further proof of being a God!
