Now 17, conjoined twins Sohna-Mohna wish to prepare as electricians – cities
The twins, Sohna and Mohna, who recently passed their matriculation exam, are ready to begin the next phase of their lives. The 17-year-olds want to become electricians.
The twins were abandoned by their parents in 2003 and were only two months old when they were taken in by Pingalwara, a home for the needy on the outskirts of Amritsar.
On Sunday, the boys were seen working on a problem in the generator installed on the premises. The brothers helped each other with the power tools and seemed to enjoy the job. “Work is worship. It shouldn’t be scaled down. Instead of engaging in drugs, the youngsters should do productive work of their own accord, ”said the twins.
“Both turned 17 and are now self-employed as they don’t need a lot of help from anyone. The hobby of doing electrical repairs fueled their passion and now they are being trained here by one of our electricians. We try to enroll them for an electrician diploma course according to their wishes. By gaining expertise in the field, both can earn a living, ”said Bibi Inderjit Kaur, chairman of the All India Pingalwara Charitable Society, which runs the home.
The electrician who runs them said, “Both of them learned and performed electrical repairs over the past year. They used to watch my work after school, but now they devote more time and learn quickly. They are able to troubleshoot any minor problems related to electricity and electronic equipment. “
Especially after their birth, the doctors from AIIMS contacted Pingalwara and the babies were given a home here on Independence Day 2003. They were named by Bibi Inderjeet Kaur after the famous historical fiction of Bhai Vir Singh Sohna and Mogna.
The twins have two hearts, two pairs of arms, kidneys and spinal cord, but a single liver, gallbladder, spleen, and a pair of legs. You were born on June 14, 2003 at Sucheta Kriplani Hospital in Delhi and soon after switched to AIIMS. AIIMS doctors said the separation would result in the loss of a twin, as well as the loss of vessels and neurons in the survivor’s lower limbs.
