In Hardoi, a baby born with four legs and four arms has been labelled ‘reincarnation of God’ with locals flocking to catch a glimpse of the ‘miracle baby’. The still-to-be-named baby was born earlier last weekend at the Shahabad Community Health Centre in Uttar Pradesh’s Hardoi district.
Earlier on July 2, the baby’s born Kareena, who chose to not reveal her last name, was rushed to a community center for the delivery of her baby. She, along with medical staff of the community center received the surprise of their lives when they welcomed the unnamed baby with four legs and four arms. Although a medical rarity, both Kareena and her newborn are reported to be doing well.
The baby soon became a local celebrity with flocks of locals emerging from different places to catch a glimpse. Visuals emerging from the health center showed the baby surrounded by shocked locals taking pictures of the child that they are claiming to be a “reincarnation of God”. It should be noted that several Hindu Gods are portrayed as having multiple arms.
The doctors have meanwhile claimed that the case is that of a twin birth, where the body of second child not developing properly, and thus, the one baby was born with a pair of extra limbs.
The Facts of the Matter
A baby born with four legs and four arms have shocked the doctors and locals in Uttar Pradesh’s Hardoi district. The incident has made the baby quite a celebrity, with locals going as far as calling the baby a “reincarnation of God”. The baby was born earlier last weekend at the Shahabad Community Health Centre.
Locals Gather At Community Health Centre
Crowd of locals swarmed the Shahabad Community Health Centre after the news of a baby with four arms and legs spread like wildfire across the district. The locals who visited the newborn called the incident a “nature’s miracle” and further labeling the baby a God’s reincarnation.
Both Mum & Newborn Doing Well
Earlier last weekend, the child’s Mother Kareena, who chose to not reveal her last name, was rushed to the health centre after she started experiencing labour pain. She was operated by the doctors, and the baby with four arms and legs was welcomed with shock and surprise. Despite the medical marvel, the child and mother both are reportedly doing well.
Child Referred to Lucknow for Treatment
Despite the child and mother being in a healthy condition, the child will now be going to Lucknow for further investigation and medical treatment that may follow. According to Dr. Ramesh Babu, who spoke to India Today, the case was of a twin birth. While the head of the one child was connected to the stomach of another baby, another baby was never developed fully, and hence the medical anomaly.
Similar Incident was Reported from Bihar
It should be noted that a similar incident was reported earlier this year. In January 2022, locals flocked the community centre of Bihar after a baby was born with four arms and four legs. Locals had back then labeled the child to be a God’s reincarnation as well.
It should be. Noted that Lord Vishnu, one of the major deities in Hindu mythology, also has four arms. With people inclining towards religion deeply, such connections are truly not surprising. Meanwhile, following the baby’s birth, the doctors confirmed that the baby with the pair of extra limbs was a case of birth defect due to pregnancy complications.
