Hailing from Uttar Pradesh, North India, this one-year-old toddler, was born with 34 fingers and toes. He has ten toes on each foot and seven fingers on each hand.

Doctors have performed a number of surgeries on this boy to amputate the extra fingers. He does not have thumbs on both his hands, so doctors are now trying to reconstruct them with the surgically removed fingers.
