BELAGAVI: Ramawwa an 18-year-old girl from Belagavi, Karnataka has never tasted any kind of food except Parle-G biscuit since her birth nor she tried any other brand of biscuits either.
She has refused all other food items that deliver the energy and nutrition. Her mother did not breastfeed the newborns but fed them Parle-G biscuits mixed with cow milk. Her twin brother was also fed the same but with time, he switched himself away from it.
Ramawwa said, “I don’t feel like eating anything else. Eating four-five biscuits at a time is enough for me. Parle-G biscuits are everything for me. I don’t know what will I do if the brand stops manufacturing them.”
Her parents said they are worried about what happens once she gets married. Even the doctors of Lake View Hospital has started a research on Ramawwa.
They made several attempts to feed her food but it has gone in vain. Dr Girish Sonwalkar from the hospital said due to lack of nutrients, Ramawwa looks like a 10-12 year old girl, however, everything is fine with her. Her knowledge is alike the other girls of her age.
He added Ramawwa needs medical counselling as she thinks normal food might harm her body. She would definitely adjust to food if she is mentally prepared for it.
