India: Baby Born With Two Minds in Same Body

Mumbai | Doctor Jagadhish Parsa, who assisted yesterday in the birth of a baby born with a rare malformation causing him to have two distinct brains crammed inside his head, claims that the newborn could be a unique case of two separate minds sharing a single head and body.

Tamish and Rajiv Mukherjee were born at 09:10 AM at the Saiffe Hospital, after a long and complicated surgical operation meant to extract them safely from their mother’s womb.

The boys are a unique case of diprosopus, a rare condition in which twins share the same body but have separate faces and brains. In the case of Tamish and Rajiv, the twins share both the same face and the same body, with each of them controlling only one side.


Doctor Parsa and his colleagues from Saiffe Hospital have made an extensive series of tests and scans on the newborn, before realizing that they were indeed dealing with two individuals.

After realizing a complete medical examination of the twins over the last 24 hours, the team of medical specialist observed that the boys are in surprisingly good health considering their condition, with the heart seemingly irrigating both brains efficiently, an element of great concern for patients affected by diprosopus.

A large crowd of onlookers gathered very rapidly around the hospital, as rumors had spread around the city that an “incarnation of Shiva”  had just been born.

The particularity of the twins seems to have struck a very sensitive chord with many Hindus, as duality is a core concept of the most practiced polytheist religion in the world.

Journalists from all over India have joined in with the hundreds of pilgrims to try and meet the miraculous newborns, leading the police to use batons and pepper spray to push back the crowd.

The boy's father

The boys’ father, Hakesh Mukherjee, seemed a bit overwhelmed by all the attention given to his family since the birth of the twins.

The size of his head, which already caused many complications at the time of his birth, will without a doubt constitute a major problem.

The sheer weight of it could easily be sufficient to break the boys’ cervical spine if not supported carefully.

Besides that problem, the twins’ internal organs all seem to function normally, leaving hope that they could possibly live many years in rather decent living conditions.

An important question remains however concerning the capacity of the boys to eventually walk or speak since these basic actions would demand an exceptional coordination from both of them to execute.

Tamish controls the left eye, arm, and leg, while Rajiv controls their right counterparts.

The twins have already demonstrated strange faculties, as one them can fall asleep while the other is awake, leaving one half of the body inert while the other is active.

  1. Hinduism is a MONOTHEISTIC religion. “as duality is a core concept of the most practised polytheist religion in the world”

      hinduism is monotheistic… how dumb are you?

    • technicality | November 4, 2014 at 6:19 pm |

      actually at its core, yes, hinduism was in fact a monotheistic religion but at the time that it was developing and being spread to what was considered “the common person” and not “the enlightened person”, they divided what their over arching “one divine being” was divided into parts in order to make it easier for the common person to understand. Because of that, modern hinduism can be described as monotheism, polytheism, panentheism, pantheism, pandeism, monism, and atheism among others depending on the individual and the tradition specific to the region in which the religion was developed.

    • at it’s originality anything was anything else. common language delegates titles according to somethings common application or practice. so as was originally said in the article, “polytheist”

    • It’s not just polytheistic. You can’t narrow it down to that because it’s way more complicated than monotheism vs polytheism.

    • Stu,
      How dare you said that?
      Welcome to the world!

  2. This is definitely a situation in which homeopathy will help.

    Hopefully this baby will learn to think twice.

  4. I understand that this is rare, but it does happen. In most cases they die due to neglect. I do hope that the parents are ready and up to this what can only be called a TEST!

  5. Here is a miracle that needs nurturing.

      A miracle? LOL. What a curse. Those children will never be able to speak. It’s not as though they can coordinate their thoughts ahead of time and agree on something to say. They’ll each need to type or write what they wish to convey.

      Walking? Maybe…but probably not without a stabilizer like a walker.

    • You don’t need your mouth to speak. One can control one computer while the other controls a separate one.
      I’m pretty sure they have no idea whether the two brains can communicate with eachother yet, they’ve just been born and it’s a world first.

    • They would understand each other and be able to intuitively coordinate their actions, if they learned at a young age. Following along with the other person would come natural, especially if they were awake together all the time. As for directly communicating, I bet it is possible, but they’d probably have to train themselves somehow, I don’t think it’d ever come naturally like this lmao. Siamese twins don’t usually do that to my knowledge, and this is similar.

    • “2 Brains are better then 1?”

      Same body though..conflicting…I want Indian food, I want Chinese…let’s sleep f u I want to go dancing…You dumb ass, I told you not to drink, now I am all f’d up and got a hangover…wtf, I got a date, can’t be late…dude, what are you blind, she’s ugly anyway!

    • Miracle? This is pure satanic genetic manipulation from a sick sickkk medical project. Many more have been done in the past and many more will be done if humans don’t say ITS ENOUGH and stop those psychopaths.
