The Child With 8 Limbs

July 4th 2008 02:24
As reported in the Daily Mail, a two-year-old girl worshipped as a goddess after being born with four arms and four legs is taking her first steps since having her extra limbs removed.
Girl with 4 arms and 4 legs


Lakshmi Tatama is an Indian girl born in 2005 in a village in Araria district, Bihar, having "4 arms and 4 legs." She was actually a pair of ischiopagus conjoined twins where one twin was headless due to its head atrophying and chest under-developing in the womb. The result looked like one child with four arms and four legs.

Families in her remote village in India believed she was the reincarnation of the eight limbed Hindu goddess of wealth and fortune Lakshmi.

Her parents were reluctant to agree to the operation for fear it would bring bad luck until doctors told them she would struggle to survive into her teens without it.

Now the brave youngster is learning to walk for the first time eight months after the successful 27-hour procedure.

Lakshmi, whose progress is being monitored by American television's National Geographic Channel and ABC, now attends a school for disabled children.

since first becoming aware of the story i wonder... what if the child was a goddess incarnate?Would she still have her divine abilities? would that have changed her in a way that the surgery had been unnecessary? it just makes me think and wonder....

True idiocy has many guises and unfortunately, too many defenders.

If this little girl really is divine, losing some of her limbs would not stop her from being divine. Natural intelligences and gifts of the spirit are not removed because of the loss of a limb (or, in this case, 4).

The removal of her misformed twin, on the other hand, is allowing this little girl to live a relatively normal life. It is no different than giving a child born with a hairlip surgery, or putting glasses on someone with vision problems. We were granted our gifts and minds to help ourselves.

It's unfair to say that! The little girl would never be able to walk or live life without having others help her. Would you enjoy being handy-caped from walking your entire life, needing someone at your side to help you with nearly everything? Everyone is different in some way, but "she would struggle to survive into her teens without it." Did you not read the article?
