We all have five fingers on each hand and feet. But this family in Gaya, Bihar is bit different.
All the 25 members of the family have 24 fingers. Yes, you read that right.
Krishna Choudhary, who lives in a small village in Gaya, just like his father and siblings. He said,”My father and grandfather had 24 fingers. I along with my brothers and sister have 24 fingers and our children and grandchildren are also affected by the condition.”
They have six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot.
While some members of the family consider it as a blessing, others term it a curse.
Krishna’s sister-in-law, Sitbiya Choudhary, said,”I feel it is a blessing on all of us; else it is impossible to have all members of the family to have the same condition. It must be some kind of message from God.”
However, Krishna admits it’s difficult for him and his children to find footwear.
The unusual condition of theirs have even left experts baffled.
Aayush Gupta, an assistant Professor at Dr. D.Y. Patil Medical College, told Dailymail,”The term is medically called Polydactyly, a genetic disorder. There may not be any physical issues related to the extra fingers but people do sometimes suffer from the psychological issues of living with such a condition.”
