When Karam's parents got the first look at their infant son, they admit that they were 'horrified.'

Their first child was born with an extremely rare condition known as polymelia.

Babies with polymelia are born with the extra limbs of a conjoined twin that did not fully form. Rather than growing a separate body the other baby was absorbed into Karam's body resulting in polymelia.

Senior orthopaedic consultant at Jaypee Hospital in Delhi, India oversaw the care of young Karam from the moment the concerned parents presented their baby.

'When Karam was brought to Jaypee Hospital for the first time, he was just two weeks old and his condition was very critical," he told Daily Mail.
