Octactinal orthopaedic operation...

Update, a.m. 08/11/07: So far, so good..."She has withstood the operation, she is safe and doing well," said Dr Sharan Patil, the consultant orthopaedic surgeon who led the 36-stong team that operated on Lakshmi.
Good luck tommorrow Lakshmi Tatma. She's a two-year-old girl - named after the Hindu goddess of wealth who has four arms - and will undergo a 40-hour operation tomorrow as doctors try to give her a chance at a normal life: she was born with four arms and four legs. [DT Link]

Well I hope it was a success. Pretty little face.

How touching that the villagers thought her condition was a gift from the gods not an affliction.
