In this article, we introduce 25 year old man who has been trapped in his infancy since he was one year old. He has since maintained a child’s height and weight of 4.4kg.
A look at Mapreet Singh would make one conclude that he is an infant without a second thought. Unfortunately, it’s not the case. Singh was actually born in 2005.
He stopped growing when he clocked one year before he was able to walk or talk.
A desperate search for answers by Singh’s family landed them to different doctors who gave them hope that their child would resume growing, perhaps at a later stage. Unfortunately, it never came to pass.
Singh’s father Jagtar Singh, 50 was told that his son had a certain hormone disorder which impeded his growth.
At the age of 25, he is still treated like other children.
His parents were unable to attend to his needs so they had no option than to send him to his aunt and uncle.
Singh can mumble few words, but cannot hold or start a conversation he mostly communicates through signs and gestures.
Singh is loved by many, he has always attended the temple for prayers, and most times, people worship him, seeing him as a small god. Singh’s family said that they have never been given a definite answer about why he stopped growing they now raise funds to hell pay for his treatment, which the cost of initial investigation and preliminary treatment is 500,000 rupees (almost £5,400.)
