“But my family and friends during such incidents are always trying to help me, not to give me to offend you.”
“Sometimes I get the urge to go for surgery to get rid of excess hair, as I really want to be friends with everyone”.
But despite all the challenges he faced because of his appearance, the guy says he is determined to pursue his dream still become a police officer to “put all the thieves and criminals in prison.”
“Sometimes I want to be like other children, but there’s nothing I can do about it. says Lalit. – I wanna be a COP when I grow up to put all the thieves and criminals in prison.”

In the first half hour after the birth of Lalita I was amazed to see that his body is covered with an extraordinary amount of hair – says the woman. When we asked a local pediatrician to examine him, he cut his excess hair and said that there’s no remedy”.
“I have 5 daughters and we prayed in many temples that we had a son. Our prayers had been answered, when the light appeared Lalit”.
“It’s different, but very special for me, because he was born after many special prayers.”
The family tried to help my son, but unfortunately, at the moment a cure for this unusual disease, which is also known as “werewolf syndrome” doesn’t exist.

After examining it, they told me that the drugs from this, but if they learn about drugs, I certainly will”.
