A baby Girl Born in Bangalore in south India Shocked her Parents as she was not born with a penis as her Previous Doctor doing Ultra sound scans had told told her parents
but what shocked them more was that she was born with 4 arms…
Lakshmi Tatma, a 2 year-old girl born with four arms and four legs is thought to be the reincarnation of the Hindu Goddess Vishnu.
Children born with deformities are often viewed as reincarnated gods. Lakshmi is no different. She is named after the four-armed Hindu Goddess of wealth Vishnu, and her parents say she is revered in her village.
“Everybody considers her a goddess at our village,” said her father, Shambhu.
Last Wednesday, however, she underwent a 24 hour surgery to give her a normal body.
The surgery went “wonderfully well,” said Dr. Sharan Patil who led a team of more than 30 surgeons at a hospital in the southern city of Bangalore that performed the marathon procedure to remove the child’s extra limbs, salvage her organs and rebuild her pelvis area.
This girl can now lead as good a life as anyone else,” Patil said
Lakshmi’s parents, who were expected to see the girl later Wednesday, said they were very relieved.
“It will be great to see our daughter have a normal body,” her father Shambhu said. “We were worried for her future.”
Doctors at Sparsh Hospital in Bangalore estimated the surgery cost US$625,000, but they did it for free because the girl’s family could not afford it.
“We are very grateful to all the doctors for seeing our plight and deciding to help us,” Shambhu said.
