India’s Divine Baby Born With Trunk
This has become a centre of attraction to the state of Uttar Pradesh as people are coming in numbers to see her.
It is believed that the girl is an incarnation of lord ganesha.
The child has a protuberance between her two eyes which people believe is the 'trunk' of Hindu deity Ganesha, who has the face of an elephant.
People from far and wide swarmed the modest house of a family of labourers to get a glimpse of the 'divine' baby.
Rajani, the babies aunt, said the people were not even shying from making offerings to the baby like they would in front of god's idol.
"My sister-in-law gave birth to a girl yesterday at 7:00 am and her face looks exactly like Lord Ganesha. Everybody is saying she is an incarnation of the God. This is why whoever hears about her is coming here to get a glimpse of the baby and are making whatever offerings possible," said Rajani on Friday.
This girl is the fourth child in the family and perfectly healthy.
"I believe this baby is an incarnation of Lord Ganesha and hence I have come here. I feel very peaceful having come here," said a visitor.
People haven't stopped coming in since the news of the birth of the 'divine' baby spread.
Women and children from the village sang songs and danced their hearts out to express their pleasure at the baby's birth.
Reportedly, according to doctors this protrusion is a result of gene mutation which can be caused by malnutrition and increased pollution levels.
If the family chooses, they can go for a corrective surgery for the child at a later stage in life.
