He cannot go to school because his physical condition does not allow him to walk long distances.

His mother Rokayah Somantri said: “I wish he can go back to normal because it makes me sad.”

Arya wasn’t always fat as a child. He was not born with this condition, in fact at the time of birth he weighed a healthy 3.8 kg.

However as he grew up he ate five meals a day – two plates at a time. This soon ballooned Arya’s weight out of control.

His school teacher comes home to tutor him and his friends come to play with him, because he suffers walking long distances.

When asked about his routine Arya said:

“I just watch tv and sleep. I study at home and my friends come to my house. Before I could only walk 10 metres, now I can walk about 30-40 metres.”
