Amala and Kamala- The Feral Sisters in India

10 Feb




The Two Sisters Kamala and Amala lying without a dress on the ground sleeping.

Have you heard about feral children? But maybe you already knew Romulus and Remus in Roman History. They are the best example of the known feral children in the world. Feral child usually underwent a very tragic experience like being abandoned by parents and left in the wild. Fate made them survived but left them with a trauma and unusual psychological problem. In Remus and Romulus case, they were luckily being able to survive with the tender loving care from a mother wolf that fed them and probably gave them the warmth that they need at night in the wild.

But just recently, around 1920s, there were another two children from India who were also raised by a mother wolf leaving them gestured like one. The two sisters Kamala and Amala were found naked in the jungle by a priest in Calcutta who later took care of them. The children were able to survive the abandonment but left with the trauma. As expected, since they were raised by the wolf they too acted like one. And that were commonly manifested by their behaviors. Walking in fours like any wolves actually made their hands thickened with callous obviously because they were walking with them like any animals. Another thing was their nocturnal behavior that made them awoke at night and eyes were used better off in the dark. They perfectly developed their sense of sight that made them able to see clearly at night. Amazingly transformed like their believed mother–wolf. But not only that, they also howl like wolves at night raising their heads towards the sky.

The story is a true example of how environment transformed someone just to help them survive with it. Isn’t it just fate? Or mystically the divine hands made a wolf raise the abandoned children like Kamala and Amala.

    This story is very interesting.
    We all were made my God to live but also survive under any circumstances

    Survival is our instinct, it’s in our blood as we too are animals. If everything was taken away from us, as it has been happened to me, I have learned how to survive with nothing.
