In an extremely rare condition and shocking development, a one-year-old boy from New Delhi in India has developed sex organs of a full-grown man – a condition that affects one among a hundred of thousands.

The little boy, Akash (not real name) suffers from the rare medical disorder called precocious or early puberty.

The rare condition has resulted in him growing facial and body hair as well as sexual urges, with his testosterone level going as high as that of a 25-year-old man.

Speaking on the rare Biological phenomenon, his mum said that Akash was just six months old, when his grandparents noticed the abnormal growth.

She said: “We thought he was just a big baby but later everyone started to point out that that this growth couldn’t be normal.

“His penis had grown to that of a man’s size and we knew something was wrong.”

Also speaking, the boy’s doctor, Vaishakhi Rustagi, who is a consulting pediatric endocrinologist at the Max Super Speciality Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, said:

 “Usually this disorder is caused due to brain or stomach tumour, but we didn’t find anything as such in blood reports. The child was lucky in a way because tumour usually increases complications and leads to cancer.”

Rustagi said he saw similar cases ‘once every 10 years’ and added: “Precocious puberty is traumatic for a child of his age and it makes them violent.

“His muscle strength increased to a level that even his parents couldn’t control him.

“If such children are not treated, they will become violent. The physical changes will not be suitable for their age.

“They will also stop growing after a few years and remain about 3-4ft tall.”

Asianage reports that when Akash was brought to the doctor, he was already 18 months old.

His testosterone level was like a 25-year-old man’s and his brain development was like a 12-year-old teenager.

Usually, a one-year-old baby’s testosterone level is 20 nanogram per deciliter but his own were 500-600 ng/dl. Due to which he also started getting facial and body hair.

Dr Rustagi said only one in 100,000 have this condition for toddlers in age group of one year and one in 10,000 for boys aged eight to 10.

The kid was put on hormone therapy and within five months his hormonal developments and genital size decreased. He is given a dose once a month that blocks the effects of hormones. The treatment will continue till he is mentally stable enough to understand and accept the changes in his body.

Ten and thousands of Hong Kong protesters flood city streets in largest rally in weeks

Published

Source: AFP- A sea of democracy activists flooded the streets of Hong Kong Sunday in a defiant show to the city’s leaders that their movement still pulls wide public support, despite mounting violence and increasingly stark warnings from Beijing.

Hundreds of thousands of protesters carrying umbrellas poured across the heart of Hong Kong island defying torrential rain and a police order not to march from a park where they had gathered earlier for a rally.

Weeks of demonstrations have plunged the financial hub into crisis, with images of masked black-clad protesters engulfed by tear gas during street battles against riot police stunning a city once renowned for its stability.

Sunday’s action, which organisers the Civil Human Rights Front said drew more than 1.7 million in the largest rally in weeks, was billed as a return to the “peaceful” origins of the leaderless protest movement.


“It’s been a long day and we’re very tired, but to see so many people out in the rain marching for Hong Kong gives strength to everyone,” said Danny Tam, a 28-year-old graphic designer.

The unprecedented political crisis was sparked by opposition to a plan to allow extraditions to the Chinese mainland.

But protests have since morphed into a wider call for democratic rights in the semi-autonomous city.

Anger has been sharpened among protesters by the perceived heavy-handedness of the police who have used tear gas, baton charges and rubber bullets in incidents that have pinballed across social media.

“The police are doing things that are totally unacceptable,” said Yim, who like many of the protesters gave only one name.

“They are hurting citizens, they aren’t protecting us.”

Communist Party-ruled mainland China has taken an increasingly hardline tone towards the protesters, decrying the “terrorist-like” actions of a violent hardcore minority among the demonstrators.

Despite the near-nightly clashes with police, the movement has won few concessions from Beijing or the city’s unelected leadership.

Hong Kong Activities face crucial weekend test after airport setback

Published

on

Source: AFP- Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement faces a major test this weekend as it tries to muster another huge crowd following criticism over a recent violent airport protest and as concerns mount over Beijing’s next move.

Ten weeks of protests have plunged the international finance hub into crisis with the communist mainland taking an increasingly hardline tone, including labelling the more violent protester actions “terrorist-like”.

Chinese state media have put out images of military personnel and armoured personnel carriers across the border in Shenzhen, while the United States has warned Beijing against sending in troops, a move many analysts say would be a reputational and economic disaster for China.

The nationalistic Global Times newspaper said there would not be a repeat of the Tiananmen Square crackdown, in which hundreds — or even thousands — are believed to have been killed, if Beijing moves to quash the protests.

“The incident in Hong Kong won’t be a repeat of the June 4th political incident in 1989,” it said, insisting the country now had more sophisticated approaches.

It was a rare reference to the bloody events, which are taboo in China.

Hong Kong’s protests were sparked by opposition to a plan to allow extraditions to the mainland, but have since morphed into a wider call for democratic rights in the semi-autonomous city.

Millions of people have hit the streets while clashes have broken out between police and small groups of hardcore protesters for 10 consecutive weekends.

For most of that time, US President Donald Trump has taken a hands-off approach to the unrest but began speaking up this week, suggesting any potential trade deal with Beijing could be upended by a violent response from the mainland.

Speaking on Thursday, Trump urged his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping to meet protesters and solve the crisis “humanely”.
