Two-year-old Lakshmi Tatma, who was recently released from a Bangalore hospital after a complicated operation to remove her parasitic twin, is being deified in her village in Bihar where women have started worshipping her clay idol for divine blessings and good luck.
People in Lakshmi’s Rampur Kodarkatti village in Araria district are upbeat about her successful operation and are eager to welcome her back home.
‘We have planned a celebration to mark her presence,” the villagers said.
They have bought new clothes, sweets, chocolates, colourful balloons and toys as gifts.
Some villagers said she has divine powers while others said she is a miracle child and an incarnation of a Hindu goddess
