A two-month old baby is being worshipped as a god in India because she has three hands. The infant girl was born in the Bilaspur district of the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh on November 2.
Though otherwise healthy, she has a small additional arm and hand growing out of the right hand side of her chest.
Her concerned mother, Radhika Sahu, brought her for a check-up at the local health centre but it appeared the extra limb was causing her no harm.
In fact, she has become the talk of the town, and some villagers are even worshipping the baby girl as a god.
But Dr. B.P. Singh, head of Chhattisgarh Institute of Medical Science, recommended an operation to remove the one-in-a-million extra hand, which would allow the girl to live a normal life.Babies born with extra limbs in India are often worshipped as reincarnations of Hindu deities.
