Three sisters, who have been afflicted with a rare syndrome, are contemplating living their lives as spinsters as they fear they will not get married due to their condition.
Savita, 23, Monisha, 18, and 16-year-old Savitri Sangli suffer from a rare genetic condition called werewolf syndrome, which manifests as uncontrolled growth of hair from head to toe.
The girl's mother Anita Sambhaji Raut revealed that the girls inherited this condition from their father. "It was only on the day of my marriage that I discovered what my husband was, hairy on his face, ears and body. He scared the hell out of me when he arrived at the altar," Anita told The Sun.
She has six daughters, but only three are affected with this syndrome. The mother is also fearful that a good marriage proposal may not materialize for her daughters.
Currently, the girls use hair-removal creams, but the hair always grows back. They cannot afford laser surgery that could address the problem permanently.
