Kodinhi – The Village Of Twin Babies
A small, yet unique village in Kerala is home to the most incredible phenomenon. This place has an incredible amount of twins! There are about 2,000 families in this village with 250 sets of twins that were registered officially, although scientists believe there may be even more. The number of twins born here increases each year and there seems to be no explanation as to why this is happening. What makes this story even more remarkable is the fact that twins are pretty rare in India – only 4 children out of 1,000 births are born as twins.
Many people believe that children have memories of their past lives, but as they grow older they soon forget all about them. Yet this was not the case with Shanti Devi who could remember her past life in all the details and at the age of 4 claimed that here parents were not her real ones. Young Shanti remembered exactly who she was – a woman named Ludgi who died during childbirth. Shanti’s parents were so amazed and disturbed that they decided to see if the story was true. They actually found the family of their daughter from the ‘past life’! Ludgi did live and die just as Shanti described. Shanti Devi later became a great scholar and teacher.
