Indian Farmer With Human Tail Worshipped As A God

human tailToday’s accidental religious savior via the Huffington Post:

A 35-year-old tea picker in Alipurduar, India, is getting tailed by followers every day — mainly because the 14.5-inch tail growing out of his back makes them think he’s a living god. Chandre Oraon has had his tail since birth and some Hindus believe it’s a sign he’s an incarnation of a monkey god known as “Hanuman,” Barcroft TV reported.

Worshippers from all over India travel to his home in hopes of touching his tail and getting blessings. One woman, Monika Lakda, said she travelled overnight to see Oraon at his small makeshift shrine, hoping he would be able to cure her nephew’s fever.

About 40 cases of human tails have been reported according to a study by the People’s Journal of Scientifc Research.
