A baby girl in India is being worshipped as a Hindu god, after she was born with a trunk. Born on Thursday, March 26, 2015, the child has a protuberance between her two eyes which people believe is the ‘trunk’ of Hindu deity Ganesha, who has the face of an elephant. People from far and wide swarmed the modest house of a family of labourers to get a glimpse of the ‘divine’ baby.
Aunt of the baby, Rajani said the people were not even shy from making offerings to the baby like they would in front of God’s idol. This girl is the fourth child in the family and perfectly healthy.
A visitor, Neelam seemed pleased to have had a look at the baby. People haven’t stopped coming in since the news of the birth of the ‘divine’ baby spread.
The girl, who has not yet been named, was born in a village in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, in northern India on Thursday. People are now flocking to see the new-born infant as they believe she is an incarnation of the Hindu deity Ganesha, who also has a trunk.
‘This is why whoever hears about her is coming here to get a glimpse of the baby and are making whatever offerings possible’.
The girl was born to Rambabu Sarvesh and his wife Banna Devi.
Mr Sarvesh, who is already a father to three children, earns 250 rupee ($5.17) a day, and hopes that his daughter’s birth will result in a change to the family’s fortunes, according to the Times of India & Telegraph.
