Amala and Kamala

Oddity
    Born in India
    Amala (circa 1919-September 21, 1921)
    Kamala (circa 1912-November 14, 1929)
    Feral children, allegedly raised by wolves before being brought to an orphanage (October, 1920)
    The rector of the orphanage, Rev. J.A.L. Singh, kept changing the story of how the girls were found.
    The doctor at the orphanage said Kamala had none of the physical anomalies claimed by Singh, such as long, sharp teeth and eyes that glowed in the dark like a cat's.
    Singh called Kamala 'a pathetic little subnormal, but clearly not idiotic, human being.'
    Pictures of the girls exhibiting wolf-like behavior (walking on all fours, eating raw meat) were staged with two other girls in 1937, after Amala and Kamala's deaths.
    If they were part of a hoax, they were unwitting participants.
    Singh allegedly beat Kamala to get her to display her wolf-like behavior for visitors.
    They both died young from kidney disease.
