Girl born with two faces in the northern Indian village, is worshiped as the reincarnation of the deity Ganesha. Three weeks of a child born at the village, 30 km from the capital New Delhi, is considered a "miracle," wrote The Daily Telegraph.

Hundreds of locals gathered at the house girl and expect her "blessings". According to ancient Indian tradition the pilgrims showered her parents' money. "At first I was a little scared - said 24-year-old father of the" divine "child Kumarn Vinod Singh. - But then I received this gift from God."

Villagers, most of whom are illiterate, according to the girl reincarnation of the god Ganesha, demihuman-poluslona, one of the most revered characters in Hindu mythology Shaivite circle. While Ganesha - the boss of the lowest of the pantheon in the service of Lord Shiva, he is revered primarily as the god of wisdom, business and overcoming obstacles.

Meanwhile, very little is known about the health of the child, because parents do not allow him to doctors. "They do not realize that they must refer to specialists for treatment - said obstetrician, who took the child in the local government hospital. - We told the parents that are willing to make a girl x-ray of the brain is free, but they have ignored this proposal.

Recall that in the past year in India has successfully passed the operation year-old girl who was born with four arms and four legs. During the operation, which lasted 27 hours, at Lakshmi separated its own spinal column and kidney from the "alien" and remove extra arms and legs. Lakshmi Tatma was born fused to the so-called "twin-parasite. This "twin" who has no head, but has its own spine, hands, feet and kidneys, was connected with the body of Lakshmi through the pelvis.
