Run Dhileepan Run!

It seems that lately there has been a lot of news about criminals on the lam from justice. When we read/hear about these people, we hope and pray that these criminals are taken off the street as soon as possible so that we can live safer lives. Usually it's some cracked out meth head who stole a police cruiser thinking it was his grandmother's Buick, and usually I don't give a shit about the criminal or his excuses for his crimes, but this case is a bit different.....

Before I continue, I want you to think back to what types of things you were doing as a 15 year old teen....You have some memories coming back right?

The movies, the mall, fast food, roller skates, basketball, paper airplanes, summer camp, bubbles, "Hide and Go Get It" errrr....I mean, "Hide and Seek", yeah, "Hide and SEEK"

How about performing a C-section? Was that on your list? No? Mine either.

Well, this kid Dhileepan Raj is unofficially the youngest person to ever deliver a baby by Caesarian section. Under the watchful eye of both his parents (both doctors themselves) Dhileepan performed the procedure sucessfully and compared to what we were doing as kids, that's some amazing shit if you ask me! Most of us were too squeamish to dissect frogs at that age, imagine trying to cut open a human and taking out a baby! This kid needs to be showered with accolades and scholarships to the best universities the world has to offer. But instead....

....he's on the run from the Indian authorities.

Now I know he looks like a criminal. Just look at those little beady eyes and devilish grin. You can tell he wants to chop you up and feed you to elephant seals just for the fun of it, but that's not why he's in the top ten of India's Most Wanted. He's being sought because his father wanted to see his son's name in the Guiness Book of World Records. After performing the surgery, Dhileepan's proud father began showing the video to his colleagues, who were probably jealous that their own teen sons were selling magazines on the corner and sniffing glue instead of operating on people. Some punk ass envious doctor ratted on them and today the cops showed up to arrest Dhileepan and his parents for "cheating, forgery of records, endangering human life, concealing evidence and abetting a crime." His parents got taken into custody, but the kid got away and now the police are after him. Now, I know of some stories where parents have forced their kids to work the rice fields and factories, or even allowed their kids to become child prostitutes or do pornography to help bring food to the table. (OK Woozie, I promise, it's the last reference to that unnamed ex-con!!!) These parents are teaching their son to be a DOCTOR! What's so criminal about that?

OK, ok, so having a kid do medical procedures is a bit of a hazard, I mean really, most teens can't walk and chew gum simultaneously, much less drive a car safely, but he did the surgery correctly and the woman and child are both fine. One day this kid is gonna save hundreds of lives with his medical skills and why should a criminal record keep him from that? Some crimes deserve a slap on the wrist and I think this is one of them! So right here and now, I'm starting the Free Dhileepan Petition (that is, after he gets caught) so that our senators and congressmen know that we support this kid. Hell, I'll even provide him a free place to stay....once I move to a place of my own!

eek....i don't know about this. I do think the parents should be penalized. That is very dangerous for them to be having him conduct the procedure. Did the patient know?

Are you crazy? You find it an achievment? What about the lives of that mother and her baby? It's not child's play!!

Hi peace and love, i agree with u on the fact that this kid is quite good at what he did. But the question is, what if other surgeons let their childer do operations as well?
BTW, did u know that in Tamil Nadu people even cut their tongue as an offering to the god, if their candidate wins the election?
Take care, Bye

I wouldn't want some damned 15 year old kid delivering my babies any way, especially c-section. The parents should be arrested.

I hope ya'll know that I was being sarcastic- except for the fact that I am truly amazed that a 15 year old had the balls to perform the surgery. I do agree, as I told Raakshas that it was idiotic for the parents to allow the boy to do it and I wouldn't want a 15 year old delivering my child either- BUT you still have to give the kid some credit. Here's an update...

man I'm not giving him credit for nada HOMES!!

what kind of sick ass parent puts his kid in this predicament so that he can get into the Guiness book of world records. And they call our parents crazy for pushing their kids to win in sports and be the best in beauty pageants.


i hope they lock his damn mom and dad up for a long time.

Too bad they haven't been teaching him how to be a defense attorney ;)

paz, society generally goes in the opposite direction, prohibiting too much. I agree that this was a dangerous thing. However, our society is heading the other way--one day we'll need a permit to put on a bandaid.

A family of Indians, all being doctors.


Still, it's crazy to let a 15 year old, even if he is a prodigy, deliver a baby.

Sure, he could be really talented, but I keep thinking about when serial killers get caught and they interview the family. They always say stuff like, "well, there was that one time he performed a c-section on Auntie Maye...oh and the animal corpses in shoe boxes under his bed...but other than that, real nice kid. Kept to himself."

This is one of the few instances where I can say "I blame the parents," and totally mean it. The kid wouldn't have done it on his own and I don't think he should be the one punished. That is all his crazy world record wanting parents' fault.

NFC- I can't say whether the patient knew or not, but apparently she was anesthetized by the father and probably didn't have much of a choice. Raakshas has a bit more info on it and the culture the family comes from.

Raakshas- I'm sure other surgeons have let their kids do things that they shouldn't have, we just haven't heard about it. That's crazy about the tongue thing, talk about blind loyalty!

Aisby- They did catch the parents but I don't know if the kid got caught yet. I can't say I blame you, but what if it was Doogie Howzer?

Kiyotoe- C'mon man, you have to give the kid some props, especially since you won't even go into the crawlspace!

Rock- It's a shame isn't it. We need to get the guvment out of our lives!

Woozie- 15 is young, but how young is too young? If he did it flawlessly and "professionally" in a clean environment (which it sounds like he did) who's to say he SHOULDN'T be able to if he has the skills and knowledge. There are a lot of young kids going to college well before they're supposed to, and most of them excel.

Mist1- I kind of hinted on that, but now I'm thinking you might be on to something....

Natalie- I blame the parents too, especially since the rationale was simply for him to be in Guinness, and maybe the kid was just doing what he was told. Parents can be a little too overzealous if you ask me and that's something I hope I don't do with my little one.

I don't know what that dude(?) is talking about. Something about "lick my ear" maybe? You can't talk shit under the "anonymous" banner, ESPECIALLY in another language!

I'm in total agreement....if my son could take out the trash without getting sidetracked by his XBox, I'd up his allowance by a few dollars!

I can't believe you support a 15 y/o boy performing a C-section. You are ridiculous. His parents belong in jail and the Department of Family and Children Services should be trying to gain custody of any child who's mother would let a 15 y/o perform that kind of procedure.

You let a 15 y/o cut your hair, trim your beard, arch your eyebrows, rearrange the living room furniture, etc.

Not perform an operation that most trained doctors can perform and experience a loss of life.

Good luck with that petition.

To me, it seems the parents are the ones that should be convicted of a crime, not the son.

I wonder if they had the patients consent.
