Boy For Sale: Young, Healthy and Fast on his Feet

Budhia Singh, a four-year-old child, runs during a marathon in the eastern Indian city of Bhubaneswar May 2, 2006. Singh, sold by his mother for just 800 rupees ($20), has been dubbed India's "marathon boy" after he ran 65 km (40 miles) on Tuesday, but critics accused his coach of risking the boy's health for cash.

The million-dollar question: Who now "owns" this young sports prodigy? Who is his legal guardian?
The 10 million dollar question(s): Where the hell is mommy and why did she need $20 so badly?
The $40 question: Does mom have the same sellers' remorse as the designer of the NIKE Swoosh logo?

Whatever the answers, may the wind always be at his back!
