A TEENAGER worshipped as a god because of his seven inch 'tail' is considering having the growth removed for the sake of his health. Balaji, 13, has become a divine symbol in the state of Punjab, India. Locals have hailed the teenager, who is wheelchair bound, as an incarnation of the Hindu monkey god Hanuman - and refer to him as Balaji. But now he is about to visit a doctor to see if he can have the appendage removed.
