Only in India: Mysterious Condition of Boy with The Most Giant Hands in the World
|Tarik's giant hands
In a strange case that has baffled medical experts the world over, a 12-year-old boy has developed hands that are visibly disproportionate to his body.
A 12-year-old Tarik from a village in Uttar Pradesh is suffering from a mysterious condition that has rendered his hands useless as they have grown to 12 inches. His plight has made the villagers think that he is cursed and they all shun him for his unnatural condition. 12-year-old Tarik has been shunned by all his friends and refused entry to every school in his village area. He is unable to dress himself and has been labelled as the ‘devil’ as the villagers think that his large hands are a result of a curse. The young boy lives with his brother and works in a tea stall, reported by India news.
"Since birth, his hands were long. As he started growing, his hands got bigger. When his father was alive, he took him to local doctors. But his father passed away and he only has his mother now. So no treatment is possible," the video shows one of the family members as saying. Hargyan, Tarik's brother says, "He has to face a lot of difficulties. It is hard for him to wash, eat and even wear clothes. So I help him with everything as he struggles to do anything."
"I was very young when my father first took me to a doctor. The local doctor told us to visit a more experienced doctor. But we did not have the money for the treatment. Now I am older. When I walk, people start making fun of me. When I go to the market, people say, the boy with the big hands has come. The doctors don't understand my condition," Tarik says in the video, according to Timesnownews.
'People are scared'
According to his family, 12-year-old Tarik has had 'big hands' since the birth.
The young boy, from Uttar Pradesh, India, works on a tea stall and lives with his brother.
His aunt, Pushpa, said: "Since birth, his hands were always big. As he started growing his hands got bigger. When his father was alive he took him to the local doctors a lot. But his father passed away and he only has his mother now, so he can’t get any treatment.”, Express UK said.
Tarik has an older brother named Hargyan who takes care of him and helps him with his simple daily tasks that his large hands prevent him from being able to accomplish. Tarik’s brother Hargyan said, “His hands are really big. I have never seen such big hands in my life. He is stuck in his life. He can’t even change his clothes. I have to look after Tarik. Sadly that has resulted in Tarik being bullied by his neighbours and friends. He was also refused admission to school.”
