Ancient India: We had Lord Ganesha brain transplant example, case of revivals after death and what not.

 Modern America:  Cleveland Clinic has successfully done first in utero fetal surgery to repair a spina bifida birth defect in a nearly 23-week-old female fetus. Which was later delivered by caesarean section near full term June 3.

During the fetal repair surgery, a caesarean section-like incision is made and the mother’s uterus is exposed. An ultrasound is then used to locate the placenta and fetus. The uterus is opened 4.5 cm and the back of the fetus is exposed, showing the spina bifida lesion. The surgeons then carefully suture several individual layers of tissue (myofascia, dura and skin) in order to cover the defect. After the uterus is closed back up, the fetus remains in the womb for the remainder of the pregnancy and is ultimately born by caesarean section.

Modern India: In 2014 over 350 and in 2010 over 100 children have died of malnutrition with acute hypoglycaemia episodes linked to lychee consumption. When will get back mera Sone ki chidia: Bharat
