Reincarnation of the Hindu Goddess

I know this is a sensitive issue but I just can't help not to comment about this. I've seen the video from the National Geographic channel about this children who are considered as a Hindu Gods. This children has deformities and should be treated and not be considered as Gods. I am not against these kids, I actually pray for them that they will be treated soon. I just don't like the idea that some people consider them as the reincarnated Gods.

The above picture is Lakshmi Tatma who was born joined with a parasitic twin.

The headless twin is joined with her at the pelvis and has its own spinal column and kidney.

Her mother Poonam Tatma believed that her daughter is a miracle and a reincarnation of Vishnu.

But the good thing is that her parents considered to finally submit their daughter to undergo a 40-hour operation to remove half of her limbs. Without the operation the girl could never walk and might not live past her early teens.


Another story about the reincarnation of the Hindu Goddess is this baby who was born in India with a congenital disorder called craniofacial duplication (diprosopus), in which part of the face is duplicated on the head.

The sad thing about this story is that the family refused to seek for special medical treatment, believing she is the incarnation of a Hindu goddess. In fact, hundreds of people have flocked to the family’s dilapidated brick house to “worship” her and seek blessings.

Reports said she ate with both mouths and blinked all four eyes.

well i guess it's better that they're treated like gods than the horrible abuse they may encounter from people who think they're curses or something.
