A baby who was born with a deformity, is being worshiped as a god.
The baby who has not yet been named, was born with 8 limbs and is believed to be the reincarnation of the Hindu god Ganesha.
Thousands of people have come to see the miracle child and worship his arrival.
The baby, who was born to Ureda Khatun in Jharkhand, India, on Saturday, has turned the sleepy town of Dumri-Isri into a pilgrimage destination.
Although many people believe that their child is a miracle baby, doctors believe that the birth defect, which left the baby with 4 arms and 4 legs, is the remains of an underdeveloped conjoined twin and not a god.
Kuntalesh Pandey traveled about 71 miles from Hazaribagh, to get a glimpse of the child.
Pandey said that when a friend first sent him a picture of the baby, he thought that it was photoshopped, but when it was confirmed that the baby was real, he had to see the baby for himself.
The baby is being cared for by nurses. “We are taking great care of the baby,” Nurse Sarita Devi said.
