Derek Redmond was already a tragic hero. Having been forced to pull out of the 400-metre relay in 1988 due to an injury to his hamstring 90 seconds before he was to start, it seems Lady Luck was not on his side. When he returned to Barcelon
a in 1992, he had undergone eight operations, but was in relative good health. The first part of the relay went great; Redmond posted the fastest time and the team made it all the way to the semi-finals. But a mere 250 metres from the finish, Redmond re-injured his hamstring, and it seemed like victory was snatched from him once again. But a powerful thing happened. He refused to give up. As he hobbled along the final stretch, his father made his way past security to help his son cross the finish line. Sixty-five thousand people cheered them on. Although he came in last in the Olympic race, he came in first in the Human race.

Indian boy Prithviraj Patil and Thai girl Supatra Sasuphan have dreams and behave just like other children around the world: they love to be included in activities and games; they enjoy swimming or painting, and most of all, eating ice-cream. What makes them different is the fact that both children were born with congenital hypertrichosis, known also as the Werewolf Syndrome.
 This terrible disease
 is very rare and unusual. There have been fewer than 50 cases documented since 1638. The children are suffering from uncontrollable hair growth. Thick animal-like fur covers their head and parts of the body. Unfortunately, science and medicine havent found an answer for their disease.
 Its so sad to read headlines such as "Half human, half wolf  or "Real Wolf Kids . The cruelty doesnt come from the syndrome, but from society

***Every Sachin Fan Must Read and Share This***
 
India vs Australia [2004] match...
 
Brad Hogg takes Sachin's wicket

 
At the end of the match Hogg gave that ball to Sachin for his autograph.
 
Sachin put his sign with one beautiful sentence,
 "IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN"
 
Till today Hogg could not take his wicket for the second
 time. After this incident Hogg and Tendulkar have come
 face to face 21 times... but he could never get Master Blaster out!
 
"THIS IS CONFIDENCE"
 
"THIS IS TENDULKAR"
 
And did you know why Sachin moved into his "own house" only recently for all the money he has? And gave away the Govt. alloted flats to him?
 
He wanted a "clean deal" in Mumbai with no black money involved.
 
"THIS IS INTEGRITY"
 
"HUMILITY, DIGNITY, RESPECT"
 
"THIS IS SACHIN"

Sanju Bhagat's stomach was once so swollen he looked nine months pregnant and could barely breathe. living in the city of Nagpur, India, Bhagat said he'd felt self-conscious his whole life about his big belly. But one night in June 1999, his problem erupted into something much larger than cosmeticworry. Mehta said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins an operation. But while operat
ing on Bhagat, Mehta saw something he had never encountered. As he cut deeper into Bhagat's stomach, gallons of fluid spilled out " and then something extraordinary happened. "First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair."

At first glance, it may look as if Bhagat had given birth. Actually, Mehta had removed the mutated body of Bhagat's twin brother from his stomach. Bhagat, they discovered, had one of the world's most bizarre medical conditions " fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene.

She is a nurse from Haldipur, India. In 1973, she was working as a nurse at King Edward Memorial Hospital where she was raped by a ward boy and was strangled. Her brain was deprived of oxygen for too long and her whole body got paralised and she was in a vegetative state. After years of treatment the doctors wanted to move Aruna from the hospital because she was showing no recovery and was occupy
ing one hospital bed. The nurses of the hospital went for a strike and Aruna was let to stay in the Hospital. She has been suffering through this since 36 years till now. When all this happened she was engaged to a doctor in the Hospital which later got married to another person after waiting for almost 3 years.
 
Attack and trial :
 
Arunaa Shanbaug from Haldipur town of Uttar Kannada in Karnataka was a junior nurse, at King Edward Memorial Hospital in Bombay (present-day Mumbai) and was planning to get married to a medic in the hospital.

On the night of 27 November 1973, Shanbaug was sexually assaulted by Sohanlal Bhartha Walmiki, a Sweeper on contract at the King Edward Memorial Hospital. Walmiki was motivated partly by resentment for being ordered about and castigated by Shanbaug. Walmiki attacked her while she was changing clothes in the hospital basement. He choked her with a dog chain and sodomized her. The asphyxiation cut off oxygen supply to her brain, resulting in brain stem contusion injury and cervical cord injury apart from leaving her cortically blind.

The police case was registered as a case of robbery and attempted murder on account of the concealment of anal rape by the doctors under the instructions of the Dean of KEM, Dr. Deshpande, perhaps to avoid the social rejection of the victim, and her impending marriage.

Walmiki was caught and convicted, and served two concurrent seven-year sentences for assault and robbery, neither for rape or sexual molestation, nor for the "unnatural sexual offence" (which could have got him a ten-year sentence by itself).
 
Supreme Court case :

Since the assault in 1973, she has been in a vegetative state.
 
On December 17, 2010, Supreme Court while admitting the plea to end the life made by activist-journalist Pinki Virani, sought a report on Shanbaug's medical condition from the hospital in Mumbai and the government of Maharashtra. On 24 January 2011, the Supreme Court of India responded to the plea for euthanasia filed by Aruna's friend journalist Pinki Virani, by setting up a medical panel to examine her. The three-member medical committee subsequently set up under the Supreme Court's directive, checked upon Aruna and concluded that she met "most of the criteria of being in a permanent vegetative state".
However, it turned down the mercy killing petition on 7 March 2011. The court, in its landmark judgement, however allowed passive euthanasia in India.
 
While rejecting Pinki Virani's plea for Aruna Shanbaug's euthanasia, the court laid out guidelines for passive euthanasia. According to these guidelines, passive euthanasia involves the withdrawing of treatment or food that would allow the patient to live
 
Response :
 
Following the Supreme Court judgment rejecting the plea, her colleagues, the nursing staff at the hospital, who had opposed the petition, and who had been looking after her since she had lapsed into coma, distributed sweets and cut a cake to celebrate what they termed her "rebirth". A senior nurse at the hospital later said, "We have to tend to her just like a small child at home. She only keeps aging like any of us, does not create any problems for us. We take turns looking after her and we love to care for her. How can anybody think of taking her life,"

Pinki Viranis lawyer, Shubhangi Tulli ruled out filing an appeal stating "the two-judge ruling was final till the SC decided to constitute a larger bench to re-examine the issue". Pinki Virani herself stated, "Because of this woman who has never received justice, no other person in a similar position will have to suffer for more than three and a half-decades.

The first streaker at a major sporting event, also produced the most famous streaking photo ever. This photograph, taken by Ian Bradshaw, was Life magazines "Picture of the Year  and also won the World Press Photo Award. People Magazine named it, "Picture of The Decade  The photo was taken during a rugby match between England and France, at Twickenham in February, 1974. During half-time, Michael
OBrien, to win a bet, ran naked on the field before a crowd of 48,000, including Princess Alexandra. The next day he lost his job and was also fined  £10, which is the exact sum he won in his bet. OBrian is now a respectable Melbourne Businessman, and was never proud of his stunt. After avoiding the press for 32 years, he finally agreed to do an interview in 2006, with an Australian TV show called "Where Are They Now?  OBrien said he thinks streaking at sporting events is a stupid thing to do, and regrets starting the worldwide trend. O Brian also said that there were no TV cameras at the games in those days, and no one but the 48,000 people in the park would have ever known about it if it wasnt for Bradshaws photo.
 Interesting Fact: Constable Bruce Perry (The bobby holding his helmet to cover OBriens naughty bits) was also on the TV show, and presented OBrian his famous helmet as a gift. Perry said "I feared he would be mobbed, or that other people would follow suit. I felt embarrassed so I covered him up as best I could.  He then added "It was a cold day " he had nothing to be proud of .

Cyclops Baby Born in India Only Survives 1 Day

 A baby boy with one eye in the center of his forehead and no nose was born in India last week. He survived only one day.Doctors were shocked when they delivered the infant by cesarean section from the 34-year-old mother, Veena Chavan.
 Dr. Ashok Anand, professor of gynecology at the hospital, told reporters, "The child must have possibly suffered fro
m cyclopia."
 A sonogram during Chavan's 32nd week of pregnancy revealed the baby was hydrocephalic, meaning water was accumulating on his brain. According to the doctor's report, medical staff wanted to perform an intrauterine shunting procedure but could not because of the advanced stage of her term.
 Chavan not only grieved the loss of her son, but was upset that she did not even have an opportunity to see him."This was my third pregnancy. I lost my previous child while I was carrying. I was told that the baby had water in the brain but never had I expected the baby to be born with one eye and no nose," she told reporters.Chavan's one surviving child is an 8-year-old daughter.
 Surprisingly, this form of cyclopia occurs in roughly one in 250 embryos and is a rare form of holoprosencephaly, which affects how the front of the brain is formed during fetal development. With cyclopia, the eyes and nose don't form properly.
 Such fetuses are often lost early in the pregnancy. Thus, despite the higher-than-expected odds, it's rarely seen. The cause is often the result of a genetic mutation, though alcoholic and diabetic mothers are at greater risk of carrying a cyclopic child.
 In 2006, India saw another cyclopic baby born in the city of Chennai. The baby girl survived and was taken home by her parents. No recent reports offer any further information about her survival.
 A year earlier, a one-eyed baby girl was born prematurely in Russia but died almost immediately after being delivered. Reports claimed her head, shoulders and back were covered with thick hair and a "small trunk" was growing above her eye.
 Cases like these have been documented for hundreds of years but have surely occurred for thousands. The mythological Cyclops dates back to ancient Greece and may have been inspired by a cyclopic infant.

Raman Lamba (January 2, 1960 in Uttar Pradesh " February 23, 1998 in
 Dhaka) was an Indian cricketer who played in four Tests and 32 ODIs,
 mainly as a batsman.
 He died after being hit in the head while fielding without a helmet,
 at short leg in a Dhaka club cricket match at the Bangabandhu Stadium.

 Batsman Mehrab Hossain hit the ball hard, and it hit Lamba in the head
 and rebounded to wicket-keeper Khaled Mashud. Mohammad Aminul Islam,
 the former Bangladesh captain, recalled "I was the new man in and
 asked Raman if he was okay. He said, 'Bulli [Islam's nickname is
 Bulbul] main to mar gaya' [I am dead, Bulli].
 Although the injury did not appear to be particularly serious, he
 suffered an internal haemorrhage and he soon died, despite a
 neurosurgeon being flown in from Delhi.
 Lamba went to Bangladesh there to play club cricket in 1991 after his
 international career was over. Banned from Indian cricket for ten
 months after an altercation with Rashid Patel, he moved to Dhaka.

Lizzie Velasquez

An American girl, who suffers from a rare and undiagnosed syndrome that prevents her from putting on weight, has to eat every 15 minutes in order to stay alive. Lizzie Velasquez, 21, from Texas, who is a communications student, weighs just 25.4 kg and has almost zero per cent body fat, but is not anorexic. This, despite 60 small meals a day, consisting of between 5,000 and 8,000
 calories daily. Velasquez had been born four weeks prematurely and doctors found there was minimal amniotic fluid protecting her in the womb. Genetic experts could not diagnose her illness, and her case fascinated doctors all over the world. Now she is part of a study run by Professor Abhimanyu Garg in Dallas. Garg believes Velasquez may have Neonatal Progeroid Syndrome which causes accelerated ageing, fat loss from the face and body. People with PRS often have triangular and prematurely aged faces with pointy nose
 
Lizzie said: "I weigh myself regularly and if I gain even one pound I get really excited. I eat every 15-20 minutes to keep my energy levels up. I eat small portions of crisps, sweets, chocolate, pizza, chicken, cake, doughnuts, ice cream, noodles and pop tarts all day long, so I get pretty upset when people accuse me of being anorexic. When I meet new people I have to say: ‹“Hi, Im Lizzie and I have this rare syndrome, I am NOT anorexic. 
 
Lizzie has a brother Chris, 12, and a sister Marina, 15, who are both normal.She was born four weeks prematurely " weighing just 2lb 10oz.
 
Lizzies parents said: "They told us they had no idea how she could have survived. They told us she would never be able to walk, talk or have a normal life. We had to buy dolls clothes from the toy store because baby clothes were too big. 
 
Despite what her appearance might suggest, Lizzies brain, bones, internal organs  developed normally, but she nearly died twice: once when her appendix ruptured at 16 and another time at 19, because her blood cells were not multiplying properly (she was critically anemic).Lizzie was born with two brown eyes, but when she was four, her right eye began to change of color and she became blind from that eye.
