We have always had kind of an obsession with Lakshmi, the Indian girl born with a parasitic twin that gave her four arms and four legs. Well, Lakshmi and her family (who, you might recall, rightly refused to sell her to a circus) are the subjects of a National Geographic documentary this weekend and a 20/20 story tonight. After the surgery, her family had to move away from the town they lived in to avoid people that were angry at the surgery and thought they profited from it (they didn't), but Lakshmi's attending a school for disabled children and her parents still consider her a goddess.
