Teen dubbed ‘reincarnation of god’ after growing 70cm hairy tale from his body

A teenager has been dubbed a reincarnation of a god after he went viral on TikTok for growing a hairy tail from his body.

Deshant Adhikari, 16, has shot to fame for his plaited 70cm long tail which left locals stunned in his hometown in Nepal, Asia.

The appendage, which is located from his coccyx, the bottom of the vertebral column, was first spotted by his parents days after his birth.

Deshant says he was initially ashamed by the peculiar addition and used to hide it from others due to embarrassment.

When he was younger, his parents took him to local hospitals and facilities overseas in a bid to find treatment until a local priest made them view the tail differently.

The priest suggested Deshant was the reincarnation of a god, leading them to feel happier about the tail, reports The Mirror.

And after going viral on social media thanks to his unusual condition, Deshant said he is now completely comfortable showing it to the world.

He said in a YouTube video: “My parents used to now show the tail and I agreed, now I don’t feel any discomfort showing it.

“A video of me went viral on Tik Tok and now a lot of people know me as the boy with a tail, and I feel good about it."

Filmmaker Puskar Nepal, who interviewed Deshant and filmed his bizarre tail, said: "His parents didn't know about his condition until they took him home from hospital five days after he was born.

"They took him to different local hospitals and even abroad seeking the proper treatment, but no effort could stop the tail from growing.

"Later they consulted the priests and they were told not to comb or use any tool to cut the tail.

"The priests even pointed out that the boy might possess some supernatural power as he might be the reincarnation of Lord Hanuman, the God of monkeys.

"They let the tail grow naturally thereafter and stopped looking for a treatment."

Deshant is not the only medical marvel to hail from Nepal.

In 2020 The world's shortest man who could walk died aged just 27 after battling a number of health conditions.

Khagendra Thapa Magar, from Nepal, stood just 67.08cm (2ft 2.41ins) tall when he set a Guinness World Record on his 18th birthday in 2010.

Khagendra had been struggling recently with heart problems, asthma and pneumonia, and he died in hospital in Nepal at 3pm local time on Friday, a day after he was admitted, the Guinness World Records reported, citing the man's friends.

His dad Roop Bahadur recalled: “He was so tiny when he was born that he could fit in the palm of your hand, and it was very hard to bathe him because he was so small."
