They however began feeling happier about it after a local priest told them that he was a reincarnated god.
The priest believes Deshant is a reincarnation of the Hindu god of Monkeys known as Lord Hanuman, according to Hindu mythology.
Filmmaker Puskar Nepal who interviewed Deshant said the priest told the lad's parents not to cut it or use anything to comb the tail as he may possess some supernatural powers.

The lad revealed that he was actually embarrassed about his condition at first but now feels comfortable showing it to the world.
