The Actual Story

Unlike the stories claim, the baby in pictures is not 105 years old. Back in June 2015, the baby was unfortunately born with a rare skin condition – making her skin look wrinkly-old. News about the unusual birth of the baby girl – in seventh month of pregnancy – spread across the village in north India. The baby weighed just 800 grams at birth and her parents rejected her because of her rare skin condition. No one held the baby in hands as they thought they will catch the disease. The abandoned baby was suffering and battling with life for two weeks. Thankfully, her granddaughter came to her rescue. He fed her goat’s milk and managed to get her to a hospital in Maharashtra, India.
