In fact, her family has begun to contemplate the possibility that she might be the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess, a notion that adds an element of mystique and wonder to her extraordinary birth.

Despite her additional digits, this remarkable baby girl is in the pink of health. Dr. BS Soni, a seasoned medic at the hospital where she was born, has confidently assured the family that there is absolutely no cause for concern. He explained, “There is no harm of any kind in having 26 fingers; it is simply a genetic anomaly. The girl is otherwise absolutely healthy.”

Medical experts have identified her condition as Polydactyly, a rare genetic anomaly characterized by the presence of extra fingers or toes. The term itself is quite telling, with its origins in Greek – “poly” meaning “many” and “dactylos” signifying “digits.” Typically, these extra digits sprout adjacent to the fifth finger or toe.

Intriguingly, polydactyly tends to have a familial connection, running in families through generations. It can also be attributed to genetic mutations or environmental factors. In most cases, the go-to remedy is surgical removal of the extra digit, a procedure that usually takes place during the child’s first two years of life. This ensures that the child can enjoy typical hand functionality and comfortably slip into shoes when the time comes. Interestingly, some adults also opt for the surgery to enhance the aesthetics or function of their hand or foot.

As for the Bhattacharya family, they find themselves in a unique situation, pondering whether they will opt for surgery to remove their precious baby’s additional digits. It’s a decision that undoubtedly comes with its own set of considerations and emotions.

Despite the medical intricacies, both parents are absolutely thrilled by the arrival of their extraordinary baby girl. Her uncle, brimming with joy, proudly declared to local media, “My sister has given birth to a baby who has 26 fingers, and we are considering it to be the incarnation of Dholagarh Devi.”

And perhaps, in a poetic twist of fate, their belief isn’t entirely unfounded. Nearby in Bahatoo Kalan, Bharatpur, stands a Hindu temple dedicated to the goddess Dholagarh Devi. Statues of the deity depict a young girl with several arms, mirroring the unique attribute of their newfound family member.

In the end, one thing is clear: amidst the medical marvel and spiritual wonder, the Bhattacharya family is brimming with happiness and embracing the uniqueness that their extraordinary baby girl brings into their lives.
