These sumo kids who underwent surgery for being overweight are now back piling on the pounds. They recently received life saving operations in order to lose weight due to severe health issues.
Parents are force feeding their kids in order to make them overweight and compete in Sumo-Wrestling which is a big sport in India. Kids as young as 4 years old are made to compete and the money prizes involved are the reason they are doing this.
They are fed up at 12 times a day and some of them are stationary on the ground for over 12 hours at a time and force fed food. Even when the parents were asked ” Did they care about the child’s health ” they replied ” Well if we have no money they will starve, and if we have them compete we can get money to feed them. It’s the lesser of two evils ”
The oldest boy Ranshu is to begin his first sumo match next week. He is already weighing over 30kg and he is only 4 years old. ( see image below )
