Ram turns serious, Laxman playful

Raipur, June 23
Nearly a year-old Siamese twins Ram and Laxman are behaving differently since they had been separated after a surgery last month here. While one is still the old playful self, the other has turned serious.

Ram and Laxman, born on July 16 last year, were joined in the stomach and liver. They were separated in a rare surgery on May 29 at Bhimrao Ambedkar Government Hospital.

Said Premvati, the mother: “When they were attached to each other, both were playful. After the separation, Ram looks serious, calm and thoughtful while Laxman is now more playful.” The hospital management hosted a touching farewell function on Friday for the children.

The children's father, Ramprakash, and mother became emotional and broke down at the farewell when the hospital staff gifted the kids toys and infant milk food packets.

“Though my family is struggling for two square meals a day, we will do our best for the children and their proper education so that they can become doctors because doctors have given them a new life,” Premvati told reporters. — IANS
