The moles almost covered his face but not his self-confidence
Haripad: Prabhulal’s skin is covered with moles. 80 percent of his skin including face have been taken over by this weird skin growth. However, it couldn’t stop him from living in this society with his head held high.
This 23-year-old Thrikkunnapuzha native is an M.Com student at Madhura Kamaraj University through distance education. He also works at the water authority office in Haripad.
His skin had been covered with moles since birth. As he grew, so did the moles. On the right side of his face, it protrudes like a beard. It also filled his right ear causing deafness.
“Earlier, during my school days, I was very sad over my appearance. I had even resisted going to school, because I believed I was ugly. But my mother, Bindhu repeatedly taught me that every being in this world has its own importance for the way they are. Those words gave me courage to accept how I am,” he added.
