The Largest Albino Family in the World (17 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       15 Mar 2012       92004       21 GALLERY VIEW

Pullan family from India is about to enter the Guinness Book of Records for being the largest albino family in the world. As long as albinism affects around one in 17,000 people, it is the unique occasion that there’s a family of seven persons who all share this condition.

 

The Pullans live in a one-bedroom flat in Delhi and due to their unusually fair complexion are often called "angrez" (which means "English") by their neighbors.

Apart from the lack of melanin pigment, albinism often brings the shortsightedness, so all the members of Pullan family can’t see properly and are extremely vulnerable to the direct sunlight. Nevertheless, the Pullans enjoy their lives and are looking forward to global recognition as the unique family.

After seeing these images, I think that all the European and Caucasian races are the result of some sort of ligth albinism happened to African races :P (Hhehehee my half assed pseudo science)

Actually, it has occured to me as well that having white skin and blue eyes is a kind of a local Northern mutation. Just think of all the animals who live in the North and have white fur, skin and feathers, unlike their Southern relatives.

re: blue eyes on WP,
apparently blue eyes first arose about 8,000 years ago in a single individual in what is now the country of rumania. for all the rest of mankind's existence, man had brown eyes, other than perhaps albinos, whose eye color comes from different genetic switches. blue eyes are in effect brown eyes with diluted pigment.

Obviously they look strange, but I can't help to wonder that despite all of their problems - poverty, medical issues -, they look happy. It might just be the novelty of being photographed that helped them forget about their lives, but it's still... cute.

Hitler wanted Germans to emulate the Aryan race (Aryans are originally from India). Now the Aryan Brotherhood celebrates the white race. And now we have a very white family from India. The circle is complete.

Connect the DOTS :)
