   Most Fingers and Toes-world record set by Haramb Ashok Kumthekar

 GOA, India
-- Haramb Ashok Kumthekar, a 22 year old marketing student from Pune was born with 12 fingers and 14 toes-setting the world record for the  Most Fingers and Toes-Living person.

  Pianists, typists and tailors might all look on green with envy at Haramb, but for him it means he cannot even wear a pair of simple flip-flops, nor can he find a pair of gloves that fit his hands in the winter.

  Heramb, who is currently studying for a Masters in Business Management at his college in the western Indian town of Pune, has always seen his extra digits as something to be proud of.
    "I am happy about it because I have something that others don't have," says Heramb. And showing a full understanding of that old maxim 'Use what you've got' , Heramb goes on to say, "I never had a problem with it and after I get publicity I will be famous because of it."   Photo: BARCROFT MEDIA  (enlarge photo)  

   Heramb's extra digits are caused by the medical condition polydactlyism, which translates from the Greek for "many fingers".

   The congenital condition occurs in one in every 500 births and famous holders of extra digits include the beheaded ex-wife of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, who was rumoured to have an extra finger on her left hand.

   Indeed, Heramb shares the condition with one of his idols, the Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan. Roshan, 34, who is one of Indian cinema's rising stars, boasts one extra digit on each hand.

   Because of the sheer number of digits he has Heramb does not have the requisite amount of nerve endings available to feel all his fingers and toes.

   Aware of his extra digits, but unable to move them, the awkwardness this causes has led to some friendly jibes from his friends. "My friends sometimes kiddingly say that my hands and feet resemble that of an alien," he laughs.

   Regardless, Heramb, who lives with his mother Seeta, 49, clearly sees his oddity as a gift rather than a curse.
