God has created them like this so they have to walk like they do

Conjoined twins Shivanath and Shivram Sahu were born in a tiny village near Raipur in central India.
Their birth caused quite a stir with some people in their village worshipping them as divine incarnations.

The boys who are now 12-year-olds were born joined at the waist. They share two legs and four arms and work in tandem to get around and they are determined to remain together. They are believed to share the same stomach but have independent lungs, hearts and brains.

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.”

The duo over time have learned how to do their chores themselves, 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.

They have stunned doctors with their ability to wash, dress and feed themselves.
They are also talented academics and considered among the top students at their local school and their father, Raj Kumar, 45 is very proud of them.

Raj, a labourer, who is married to Srimati has five daughters, and is very protective of his two sons and will not allow them to leave the village.

He said, "For everyone it is good fun to watch my children, but only I understand all the problems they have. During rainy season it becomes difficult for them to walk and when one wants to sit the other has to lie down. But they don't fight. They have similar opinions and if one says he wants to play the other one agrees.

"God has created them like this so they have to walk like they do. They will remain like this. I don't want anything else. Even if doctors say so, I won't get my children separated. I have no interest in money. I'm the one who will work hard to nourish them. I don't need any help."
