Mithun is forced to stay at home because he fears that his appearance scares a lot of people.

If not for his condition, he’d be a typical Indian boy.

For many years, Mithun’s family believed that his condition was caused by taking the wrong medication.

Apparently, when Mithun was just five years old, they took him to a doctor because he complained about his mole being painful. After taking the medicine prescribed by the doctor, sores reportedly started to develop all over Mithun’s body.

Mithun has been rejected by schools because of his appearance.

Mithun’s father, Ramji told the UK-based Daily Mail:

“After taking the medicine, Mithun’s face started swelling. His entire body turned red like copper.”

Back then, Mithun’s family and neighbors believed he had been “cursed by the gods.” Thus, instead of going back to the doctor, they tried to cure him through rituals.

Mithun suffers from neurofribroma, which is not contagious.

However, they were alarmed when the tumors simply kept growing on his face and his body. At that point, Mithun was taken to a specialist named Dr. Ashwini Dash. It was Dr. Dash who revealed that Mithun had neurofibroma, a rare genetic disorder that causes tumors to develop along a person’s nerves.

Mithun's family members are among the few who aren't scared of him.

Another doctor had said that Mithun’s cases isn’t entirely hopeless. He said that the tumors that are covering his eye, mouth, nose, and other natural orifices can be removed.

Unfortunately, Mithun’s parents cannot afford the surgery, which costs £3,500 (around $4,364). Mithun’s father is a laborer who only earns £3 (around $3.74) each day.

Thus, Mithun remains confined at home.

Mithun seemed "normal" until he was 5 years old.

His parents did try to send him to school when he was eight. However, his classmates got scared of him. Mithun recalled:

“They called me a ghost and started running for their life as if they had a seen a real one.”

He likewise added:

“My parents have forbidden me to go out at night as people tend to get more scared of seeing my face at night. I spend most of my time alone at home. I have no friends. There is no one to talk to. I don’t know what the point of my life is.”

Mithun struggles to drink water.

We can only hope that some kind and generous soul will help Mithun, who has been nicknamed as “Ghost Boy” by those who don’t really know what he’s going through.

Aussie YouTubers Break Guinness Record For Highest Basketball Shot Ever at 180m (593 feet)

The guy got it on his third attempt. How is that even humanly possible?

A team of Australian YouTubers just broke the Guinness World Record for the highest basketball ever shot. ‘How Ridiculous’ is a bunch of guys who love “sport, trick shots and making a difference,” according to their YouTube channel.

It can be remembers that How Ridiculous first held the record back in 2015 when they successfully recorded a basketball shot of 126.5m (415 feet) at the Gordon Dam in Tasmania, Australia. In May 2016, however, Dude Perfect stole the record with their 162m (533 feet) shot from the Cotter Ranch Tower in Oklahoma City, United States.

Well, How Ridiculous just successfully regained the title this month with a shot made from 180m (593 feet)!
