Lakshmi Tatma Goes Home

Lakshmi Tatma, the toddler born with eight limbs, was released from the hospital this weekend.

The Times of India begins their coverage with a cute, though awkwardly worded, anecdotal lede:

Ask Lakshmi where are her extra legs and hands and the two-year-old gives a bright smile. She gestures with her hands indicating they are ‘gone.’

Lakshmi’s future looks promising. Her doctors at Bangalore’s Sparsh Hospital believe that she will live a normal life.

There was another bit of happy news in the Times of India article. Lakshmi’s father Shambhu has promised to educate his daughter to the best of his ability. “Who knows, she might become a doctor or engineer tomorrow,” he said.
