New Delhi: It was a priceless moment when the formerly conjoined twins Jaga and Kalia saw each other for the first time today after their separation surgery was successfully conducted at AIIMS, New Delhi two months back.
The twins were joined since birth in such a way that they could never see each other's face. But for the first time they saw each other after their bodies were separated. The two appeared to be glad to see one another as Jaga touched Kalia's face and smiled when they were made to sit next to each other today.
The hospital authorities informed that there has been considerable improvement in the health condition of the separated conjoined twins since the surgery conducted on October 25 and 26.
The twins, whose crania were fused, were brought to the AIIMS on July 14 from Milipada village in Kandhamal district.
The AIIMS on Sunday also released a photograph of Jaga and Kalia spending time with their parents.
Official sources said, both Jaga and Kalia will have to undergo reconstructive and plastic surgery of the skull in a phased manner.
