Baby Girl in India Born With Nose Resembling Lord Ganesha's Trunk

In a village in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, a baby girl was born with a protuberance between her two eyes which people believe resembles the trunk of Lord Ganesha. She has become the center of attraction in the village as people are flocking to see her believing that she is an incarnation of Lord Ganesha. People from far off places have swarmed the modest house of a family of laborers to get a glimpse of the 'divine' baby.

Rajani, the baby's aunt, said, "The people were not even shying from making offerings to the baby like they would in front of an idol. My sister-in-law gave birth to a girl at 7:00 a.m. and her face looks exactly like Lord Ganesha. Everybody is saying she is an incarnation of the God. This is why whoever hears about her is coming here to get a glimpse of the baby and are making whatever offerings possible."


Neelam, a visitor, seemed very pleased to have had a look at the baby. She said, "I believe this baby is an incarnation of Lord Ganesha and hence I have come here. I feel very peaceful having come here."

This girl is the fourth child in the family and is perfectly healthy. The doctors have revealed that this protrusion is a result of gene mutation which can be caused by malnutrition and increased pollution levels. If the family chooses, they can opt for a corrective surgery for the child at a later stage in life.
