印度马拉松神童出演MTV

India's "Marathon Boy" Stars in Music Video

A four-year-old Indian boy who became a national celebrity after running for seven hours, triggering abuse claims from human rights activists, has notched up another success -- starring in a music video.

Last week Budhia Singh entered into the Limca Book of Records, a local version of the Guinness publication, after running uninterrupted for 65 kilometres (40 miles).

Officials in his home state of Orissa in eastern India poured praise on the boy as the media raced to cover his every step, but leading rights bodies criticised the state government and Budhia's coach for endangering the boy's health for personal reward.

Prepared in the local Oriya language, the video is being promoted by a handful of television channels. A four-minute song from the video is set to be released on Sunday with the boy in attendance.

  "We hope the song would clear many misconceptions about child," producer Rajesh Kumar Mohanty told Reuters.

"Budhia is not just an ordinary human being. We have tried to compare him with mythological Lord Krishna. He was born somewhere else and is being brought up by his coach," Mohanty said.

Krishna, a popular Hindu deity, is believed to have been born in a jail before being spirited away by his father and given to relatives to look after.

Born in a slum in Bhubaneswar, the capital of Orissa, Budhia was sold by his mother for just 800 rupees (10 pounds) after his father died. Biranchi Das, a local judo teacher, adopted Budhia and later discovered his unusual stamina.

The video shows Budhia running and practising judo, the sport taught by his coach, while the song's lyrics praises him as the pride of Orissa.

The state government has requested the Orissa High Court to restrain Das from making Budhia run long distances after a doctors' report warned that strenuous exercise at such a young age could damage his health.



不久前,印度4岁的布迪亚·辛格创造了世界上最年轻的马拉松选手的长跑纪录。辛格成为印度家喻户晓的运动明星,也引起人权组织的高度关注。目前,这位印度的焦点人物即将在一部音乐电视中担任主角。

据路透社5月11日报道,2日,印度奥里萨邦男孩布迪亚·辛格连续7小时奔跑65公里后创下了印度版的吉尼斯世界纪录——林卡记录。由辛格为主角的音乐电视将于14日在印度奥里萨邦当地电视台播出。在音乐电视中,人们可以看到辛格在进行长跑和柔道训练时的情景,这首新歌称赞他为奥里萨的骄傲。

制片人莫汉提表示:“我们希望这首歌能够消除关于这个孩子的太多误解。辛格不是一个普普通通的人,我们将他比作克利须那神。”克利须那神是印度最重要的神灵之一。传说他出生在狱中,后来被父亲偷走送给亲戚抚养,而魔鬼普特娜曾用牛奶和毒药喂养过他。

辛格的身世也很悲苦,他出生在奥里萨邦首府的贫民窟。在父亲去世后,母亲以800卢比(合10英镑)的价格将他卖掉。后来,当地的一名柔道教练收养了辛格并发现他在长跑中的惊人耐力。

辛格的传奇式成功轰动了整个印度,人们用“天才”、“神童”等各种封号铺天盖地地赞扬着他。

电视中,人们看到瘦小的辛格身着白色T恤、红短裤一直在不停地奔跑,他不断超越身边的成年选手,直到跑到65公里身体出现了极度疲劳迹象后才被医生中止了比赛。而在停下来之前,辛格已在炎热的天气中连续跑了7个小时。

年幼的辛格立刻引起印度人权组织的高度关注。印度全国人权委员会要求奥里萨邦政府对辛格进行体检并调查这次长跑的组织者。医生发现辛格有营养不良、贫血、低血压等症,并指出剧烈的运动对这样小的孩子而言有害健康,奥里萨邦政府下令禁止他继续参加长跑。印度全国人权委员会指责奥里萨邦政府和辛格的教练为了破个人记录危害孩子的健康。
