So Bizarre: See the Young Girl Who Has 'Cotton Tears' Falling From Her Eyes Every Day (Photo)

The girl allegedly oozes cotton tears
 
An 11-year-old from the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh has allegedly been popping out 35 to 40 small white pebbles of what looks like cotton from her eyes, every day for over two weeks.
 
Manasi, a sixth-grader from the village of Pachkhura, apparently started producing the bizarre white “cotton tears” on August 25, and her father, as well as the locals are convinced that she is possessed by a ghost.
 
Villagers have been avoiding the girl and her family ever since word got out about her condition, fearing divine wrath, and her parents are so superstitious that they have yet to consult an ophthalmologist.
 
According to Manasi’s father, Gendlal Kevat, she has been shedding between 35 and 40 “cotton tears” per day, for the past two weeks.
 
The local doctor came to see her after hearing about it from the other villagers, but after examining the bizarre white pebbles, all he could do was recommend that she be consulted by a professional eye doctor.
 
Nayi Duniya, the Indian paper that reported Manasi’s case, consulted several ophthalmologists about it. Dr Navneet Saxena, Dean and ophthalmologist of Medical College in Jabalpur, said that it could be just an allergic reaction that sometimes manifests itself as white discharge and thread coming out of the eye, while Dr Pawan Setak said that the condition is likely caused by a Vitamin D deficiency.
 
He added that malnourished children sometimes exhibit a white discharge from the corners of their eyes, which look like cotton.
 
Those explanations don’t make much sense to me, but, then again, I’m no doctor.
 
Manasi’s case does remind me of other bizarre eye conditions we featured in the past, like that of Saadiya Saleh, a Yemeni girl who cried stone tears, and that of Laura Ponce, whose eyes have been producing solid white crystals for over 20 years.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…

Planet Earth has indicated through global warming the most visible sign of climate change.

To stop this negative effect and preserve the ozone layer, here are a few ways to check air pollution; Prevent bush burning In some rural areas bush burning is an easy way to prepare farmlands for cultivation.
