The mysterious transformation
Brothers Abdul Rasheed and Shoaib Ahmed suffer from a rare disease which leaves many doctors speechless and confused.
Whenever the 9 and 13 year old boys fall asleep, they become paralyzed and in a vegetated state! They are unable to eat, talk or move at all.
Their father believes they are under a curse or black magic of some sort, so he seeks spiritual healers to help the poor boys.
It has to do with the fact that Abdul Rasheed and Shoaib Ahmedâs parents are first cousins, and two of their six children died at an early age.
"Their father calls them the âsolar kidsâ because he believes they get their energy from the sun, and by evening have nothing left to function. This theory has been disproven, however, because the boys have no trouble during the day in a dark room, during a rainstorm, or shaded areas outdoors."
