|Malnourished all his life, Gopal Haldar couldn't work in the fields in India's Sunderbans mangrove region.
Because of his poor health and stick-like body, his neighbors said that he was "born to play a ghost" - so in a when-life-gives-you-lemon-you-make-lemonade fashion, Gopal now makes a living playing a ghost.
From the website: "He says it takes him only 10 to 15 minutes to do his makeup and transform his emaciated self into a ghost-like creature -- mainly by painting his sunken face, protruding ribs and skeletal limbs with soot."
