Meet Conjoined Twins Who Are Worshipped In India

This Siamese twin, Shivanath and Shivram Sahu, are the latest set of gods that are worshiped in India, a country known for its superstitious beliefs and wide range of mini gods.

The unfortunate twins are taking great advantage of their misfortune  as some people caused quite a stir when they were born in India, as some people in their tiny village near Raipur in central India, worship them as divine incarnations.

The 12-year-olds who were born joined at the waist, share two legs and four arms and work in tandem to get around and they have found a remarkable way to get to school - dropping to the floor and running like a spider.

According to reports from the Huffington Post, the duo have stunned doctors with their ability to wash, dress and feed themselves, and say they are determined never to be parted.

Shivram said:

We don’t wish to get separated. We will stay like this even when we grow old. We want to live as we are.

We have taught ourselves everything. We ride to school on a bicycle and playing cricket is no problem.

They are believed to share the same stomach but have independent lungs, hearts and brains.

With practice, they have learned to do all their basic daily chores with minimal fuss, including showering, eating, getting dressed and combing each other's hair.

They are able to walk down the stairs of their simple split-level home and even run on all six limbs to play cricket and other games with neighbouring children.
