The ‘World’s Hairiest Girl’ Deemed By Guinness Shaved Her Face And Is Happily Married Now



If there’s one reason not many people are happy, it’s because of the fact that they haven’t yet developed the art of accepting themselves as they are. If we have to pinpoint one specific reason which is a major contributor to depression, sadness, sorrow and all that has a negative impact on humans, it is obviously the fact that we haven’t yet learned to accept ourselves. As they say, if there’s some we love the most, it’s ourselves. But even after loving ourselves so much we give unnecessary importance to the opinion others have on us. One word from someone whom a stranger can make us extremely happy and even make us fall in extreme depression. Until we humans start accepting the fact that no one has the power to harm us or make us happy until we give them the permission to do so, we will always be dependent on someone else for our happiness.

You might be wondering what’s the connection between happiness, accepting ourselves as we are, with this particular post which is about World’s Hairiest Person – Sumatra Sushupan? Well, to understand the connection do read on.

The girl, Sumatra Sushupan, as we already know was named as the World’s Hairiest Person in 2010 by Guinness World Record. Sumatra Sushupan is from Bangkok, Thailand and was born with Ambras Syndrome, a condition which causes excessive hair growth in the body. This condition is also known as Werewolf Syndrome. We wonder what might we have done if we were suffering from such a condition. As we tend to give importance to the opinion others have on us, we might have given in to the comments made by our fellow neighbors and streetwalkers and probably might have locked ourselves inside a room forever, if not, committing suicide. But this girl, Sumatra Sushupan, did not budge, neither did she gave any importance to the opinions of the public, rather she accepted the fact and started living her life normally just like any other human being.

A ray of hope…

Doctors who had a look at her and understood the problem, suggested the family to make her undergo laser treatment, which, according to the doctors was the ultimate solution to the problem. Though the girl underwent laser treatment, the excessive growth of hair did not stop, and hence she started to rely on shaving the excess hair which grew on her body.

Loving and supportive family

Sumatra Sushupan credits her family for being there with her, loving her and supporting her when everyone in the town used to call names to her. She says it is because of the support of the family and their love that she was able to come out of the difficult phase and embrace herself. Once, she accepted herself completely, people outside also started accepting her, and hence now she has a lot more friends than she had before.

The power of love…

Sumatra accepted her condition and started loving herself. She never misses an opportunity to remind us that she is special and this attitude has brought a lot of joy and happiness in her life. She says, as there are only 50 persons who are known to suffer from the same disease as she does, it makes her feel special that she is one among those 50 people in the world.

The power of loving and accepting oneself doesn’t end here. Her condition is also known as werewolves, and till this date, there are communities who shun these people. But it is not the case with Sumatra; she is not only accepted by many people around her, but she has also found the love of her life and is happily married to him from the age of 17.

Speaking of her soulmate, she says, “He is not only my first love… but the love of my life”.

Though she has accepted the fact that her condition is rare and hence it is difficult to find a cure for it, she is still living in the hope that there will come a day when she will be cured and will not be required to search for razors to shave the excess hair anymore.

Her story is going viral on social media sites, and she has been seen as an inspirational figure all over the world. Her story once again proves the fact that to be happy one need not possess earthly things or have the amazing appearance; rather one should be content with whatever one has, which actually will make us stand out in the crowd. We do hope that Sumatra will lead a very happy married life and will continue to inspire millions of youngsters.

COVID-19: Students of classes 10, 12 want board exams cancelled



Amid a surge in COVID-19 cases, over one lakh students of classes 10 and 12 have signed petitions urging the government to either cancel board exams scheduled to be held in May or conduct them in online mode.

The hashtag “cancelboardexams2021” has been trending on Twitter for the past two days.

However, both the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) have said that adequate safety arrangements are being made for students and all COVID-19 guidelines will be followed during the exams.

“The situation in India is getting worse day by day. When there were only a few cases in the country, they cancelled the remaining board exams and now when the cases are at a peak they are planning to open schools. We urge the education minister to look into this matter and cancel all examinations to be held this year as students are already under a lot of stress,” a petition on Change.Org said.

Divya Garg, a class 10 student, on Twitter urged the government to postpone the exams for at least a month and then take a further review based on the number of cases.

“The students have already faced a lot of problems till now in this pandemic. Classes were held online so the exams should also be held online or students should be promoted via internal assessment marks,” another user tweeted.

Usually, practical exams are conducted in January and written exams begin in February and conclude in March. However, the exams were delayed and are scheduled to be held in May-June in view of the pandemic.

“Adequate arrangements are being made to ensure the students are safe and all COVID protocols are followed. The number of exam centres has been increased by 40-50 per cent to ensure social distancing. The staff at exam centres is being sensitised to ensure all guidelines are followed,” a senior CBSE official said.

The board had last week announced that if any student fails to appear for ongoing practical exams after the student or any family member testing positive, the schools will conduct re-tests for them at an appropriate time.

The official, however, did not comment on whether the same relaxation will be given to students in theory exams as well.

Similarly, Gerry Arathoon, the chief executive and secretary at CISCE, said the schedule for exams “will remain the same”.

Schools across the country were closed in March last year to contain the spread of COVID-19 ahead of a nationwide lockdown.

Several states started reopening the schools partially from October last year, but physical classes are again being suspended in view of the exponential rise in coronavirus cases.

Last year, the board exams had to be postponed mid-way in March. They were later cancelled and the results were announced on the basis of an alternative assessment scheme.

Both the CBSE and CISCE had decided not to come up with a merit list last year.

India registered a record single-day spike of 1,26,789 new COVID-19 cases, pushing its infection tally to 1,29,28,574, while the number of active cases too went upwards to breach the nine lakh-mark again, the Union Health Ministry’s data updated on Thursday showed.

Places of worship to open from June 1; private, govt offices with ‘full strength’ from June 8 in West Bengal



West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday – two days before the lockdown 4.0 to end — said that all places of worship in the state will open from June 1.

As per her announcement, not more than 10 people will be allowed to enter the religious place and congregations or functions will not be allowed.

“Temples, mosques, gurdwaras, churches, all will open, but not more than 10 people will be allowed, there will be no assembly at religious places. This will be implemented from 1st June,” she said in an online press conference.

CM also launched a sharp attack at the centre during the online press conference for running migrant special trains.

“They are stuffing the Shramik trains full of people, there is no social distancing, no food, no water, nothing. What are they trying to do? Are they running Shramik trains or are they trying to run Corona Express?” West Bengal CM said.

She said the railway ministry could easily increase the number of coaches in the trains to prevent crowding. Citing herself being as the rail minister, she asserted that the railways has enough number of rakes to make the trains longer and stop crowding.

“If such trains could run in the lockdown, religious places that had been shut and neglected for two months could open too,” she said.

“West Bengal was successful in controlling the COVID-19 spread in the last two months. Cases are increasing now as people are coming from outside,” she added.

The tea and jute industry will also open from June 8 with 100 per cent workers, Mamata Banerjee said. All government and private offices will open with full strength.

After the announcement of lockdown on March 25, all the places of worship were shut and continued in the extended versions as well.

Earlier today, Union Home Minister Amit Shah met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the lockdown strategy as India saw its biggest spike in Coronavirus cases with 7,466 infections in 24 hours.

His meeting with the Prime Minister comes a day after Shah on Thursday evening asked Chief Ministers for feedback on the lockdown and their views on whether to extend it after May 31.
