Fiji Man Was Raised As a Chicken

 

After his parents died and was handed over to his grandfather, young Sunjit Kumar was locked in a chicken coop. Having little contact with humans, Sunjit began to emulate and pick up habits of the chickens in the coop.

His behavior consisted of picking at food, hopping around like a chicken, keeping his hand in a chicken-like fashion, and even made a noise similar to the calling of a chicken. Kumar eventually flew the coop, and was taken to a local hospital.

After spending 20 years at the hospital, sometimes tied to his bed, Kumar, now 32, got a second chance through Elizabeth Clayton, who took over Kumar's care and has made remarkable progress, learning to walk and talk like a human being.

  What??  
 
he gets locked in with the chickens by his grandfather, nasty and cruel but it does happen that people are evil and then he escapes and the hospital does not one thing to help him, they just tie him to a bed for 20 years!!!!! Now he is learning to walk and talk because one person made the time to teach him. What kind of hospital is that!

Unfortunetly a most likly poor, understaffed, over worked one. There are a lot of schools in Fiji that dont even have desks or chairs. The people are wonderful in Fiji (except for this grandfather it seems). Its a pity to see such a lovly place and people not given multi millions in aid, when countries filled with people who hate us get given billions. Not saying anyone is less deserving of aid than anyone else, but sometimes it does seem a little out of balence.
