SKSN School featured in Channel 4 documentary

SKSN School is featured in one of the latest episodes of channel 4’s Bodyshock series, “The Girl with Eight Limbs Grows Up”. Lakshmi Tatma was born with a conjoined twin, attached at the front of her hip, giving her the appearance of eight limbs. Immediately she was worshiped by her parents and village as the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi, the eight limbed goddess of wealth and prosperity. She is now happy and flourishing at SKSN School after having endured an 18 hour operation to remove her half formed twin. Since her operation last year, Lakshmi and her family have received care at SKSN School where her father works in the school kitchen with Lakshmi and her older brother attending school. This is a rare opportunity to see the great work of SKSN School, but hurry the documentary is only available on channel 4OD until the end of February    http://www.channel4.com/programmes/bodyshock/episode-guide/series-19/episode-1.
