    Real-life elephant man is worshiped like a god, begs to stay alive

    Kanai Das has the face of an Indian God — and the wallet of a poor man.
    A rare condition called neurofibromatosis has left the 42-year-old with pachyderm-like features, which has made some worship him as a real life Lord Ganesh, the Hindu elephant deity.

    But he still has to beg for money– and only collects about $5 a day.
    “People think I am a God because I have a trunk like him,” he told Caters News Agency. “But I was not always like this.”
    Das was born with a lump on his head that eventually grew so large that layers of facial skin sag all the way down to his chest — completely blocking his right eye.
    “I have fond memories of seeing from both the eyes, but over the years, my right eye has disappeared,” he said. “I do not even remember how I used to look before.”
    Das uses what little money he gets from begging on the streets to support himself and his adoptive mother, Bharati.
    “People revere him as Lord Ganesh and give money,” the 73-year-old widow said. “Everyone loves him and seeks his blessings, but we need the blessings. He needs it more as he lives a very painful life.”
    Das is currently trying to get enough money to have surgery to correct his appearance.
    “Though doctors have told me there is no cure, I still hope for a miracle,” he said. “I want to be a healthy person and lead a normal life.”

    It's not kind of us to ridicule and demean this godforsaken man. I want to reach out to him.
    Is he on Facebook or Encyclopediabook?
