(Scroll down for video) People are flocking to a small town in India, to worship a little girl who was born with an elephant trunk nose.
The unnamed girl of Uttar Pradesh, was born with a big piece of skin that obscures her nose.
The doctors said that a genetic mutation combined with possible malnutrition, gave the girl the bulge. Residents however, said that there was something more divine at work.
They believe that the girl looks like the Hindu god of success, which has the head of an elephant on a human body. People rejoiced during her birth, singing and dancing in the streets.
Many visitors lined up to see the girl and give her their offerings. Police are keeping the crowd under control.
The girl’s father, Om Prakash, said that he hoped the girl brings luck to her family because he only earns $4 a day as fruit vendor.
The girl’s mother, Sarvesh, is still recovering. The girl will be able to undergo corrective surgery when she gets older.
