pain is the staff of life

Tiny Tot Lali (Apple Photobooth pic or a new mindset needed)

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on April 9, 2008

Is Tot Lali, the 2-faced babe born in Northern India, a Goddess or a Severely Deformed Child? It depends largely on where you live. If she’d been born in the West she would have already undergone surgery to remove one of her faces. How great a deformity (maybe this is the wrong word) does it take to set one handicapped (also the wrong word) person apart from the crowd in India? Many of the Gods in the Hindu Pantheon when expressing themselves in human form have exaggerated and unusual features. The Goddess Kali has 24 arms, Ganesh the original elephant man looks like Dumbo with the body of a human but has 4 arms. Sometimes Shiva has 3 eyes.

If you’re a God and you have to get human, of course you’re going to have 24 arms or 2 faces. Is it only a surfeit of human features that makes one a God? or would a deficit in some departments also count?

I think this is a hoax, Totalli. She doesn’t seem to have a body and she doesn’t look Indian. She could be Tibetan…or Chinese.

Tot Lali

and…Tot Lily!
