A girl in India who’s been born with 26 fingers and toes is believed by her family to be the incarnation of a Hindu Goddess. The baby, who has seven fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, has a condition called polydactyly which is one of the most common hand abnormalities present at birth.
However, the family considers the little girl’s extra offerings as something bigger. “She has come to our home as a goddess. We all are lucky that ‘Lakshmi‘ [the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune, power, beauty, fertility, and prosperity] has taken birth in our family,” the baby’s uncle Deepak said in an interview.
