"It's a delight to see my daughters live like any other normal children. At the pre-pregnancy stage itself, we were aware of that they were conjoined twins, but still, we went ahead as I felt they are our children and we should own them in whatever form they are born," said the girls' father Emmanuel.

Narayana Hrudayalaya Woman and Child Institute director, Dr Ashley L J D'Cruz, said that the twins were fit to be discharged, but added that Peace had hernia, which would be rectified in six months time.

The twins arrived in India for surgery as they shared a common liver, small intestine, gall bladder and bilary gland. On June 7, they were separated in a marathon operation that involved 24 medical personnel.
