An 18 year old Ramawwa claims to have tasted nothing except Parle-G, her whole life. Since her birth she was denied any other food for her growth and development, except for Parle-G.
She was not even breastfed by her mother and the only thing that she tasted was the biscuit mixed with the cow milk. Even her brother had the same diet. However, he was later weaned from the diet.
Ramawwa has around six to seven packs of biscuits every day. “I don’t feel like eating anything else. Eating four-five biscuits at a time is enough for me. Parle-G biscuits are everything for me. I don’t know what I will do if the brand stops manufacturing them.” She says.
Even though the doctors tried to make her taste other foods she wouldn’t budge. She will not like tasting biscuits of other brands.
Dr. Girish Sonwalkar says that Ramawwa requires medical counselling to encourage her to feed on other food and to remove any kind of fear that’s associated with tasting other food. He is sure that Ramawwa’s digestive system will not reject the food she needs to take later.
