8-year-old boy has a hairy tail

An eight-year-old boy in a Bihar village has grown a hairy tail that refuses to stop growing every time it is cut. Roshan Kumar, who stays in Rani village in Begusarai district, about 126 km from here, hates his appendage and wants to get rid of it. H is friends in school make fun of him, calling him "poonch wala bandar (monkey with a tail). A doctor told the Class II student not to worry, saying the tail would stop growing on its own after a while. According to his father, Avadh Kishor Rai, the tail is a "rare gift of nature". But it causes Roshan a lot of pain too, especially when children make a grab for it during play. According to Rai, several people come to see his son out of curiosity. "His tail has been there since birth. It is a miracle of nature," Rai maintains. But for the tail, Roshan is a normal child, said his father. His tail has been there since birth. It is a miracle, a rare gift of nature — Avadh Kishor Rai, the boy’s father
