NEW DELHI (Diya TV) — Doctors in India have replaced the damaged nose of a 12-year-old boy with a new one which was grown on his forehead. After he suffered pneumonia as a baby, Arun Patel’s nose was badly damaged and disfigured as a result.

The infection damaged the cartilage of his nose, making it difficult for doctors to fix it. In 2013, a similar operation was carried out in China where a man who had damaged his nose in a car accident was given a new one.

Patel’s parents took him to see the doctor of their village in the central state of Madhya Pradesh when he suffered from pneumonia soon after being born. The treatment he received only worsened his condition and he lost his nose due to extensive tissue damage during the process.

The entire operation took about a year to finish.

More than a decade later, a team of doctors in Indore decided to a rare four-phased plastic surgery to give Arun a new nose.

Dr. Ashwini Dash, who served as the lead of the surgical team, said that he was “confident that the new nose would work properly like his other organs.”

The entire process took about a year to finish, Dash said.

In the first phase of the process, a silicon “tissue expander” was applied to Patel’s forehead to create the space to grow a new nose. Afterward, a special chemical was injected to make the tissues expand. The second phase involved the removal of cartilage from his chest to create the new nose, which grew on his forehead over the next three months.

The doctors removed the artificial nose during the third phase, ultimately implanting it on his face. The fourth and final phase of the process was spent to repair his forehead.

Pastor challenges yoga, Hinduism for having ‘demonic’ roots

Published

on

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (Diya TV) — A Missouri pastor criticized yoga for its ‘demonic intent’ because of Hinduism influences. John Lindell of the James River Church in Ozark, Mo., which serves over 10,000 people in its congregation, warned Christians to not partake in the activity.

“They were designed, they were created with demonic intent, to open you up to demonic power because Hinduism is demonic,” Lindell said during a sermon on Oct. 28 according to the Springfield News-Leader.

While yoga is a longstanding practice originating from India, there is no indication that it is based off religious values. According to India’s Ministry of External Affairs, it is stated yoga doesn’t adhere to any particular religion or belief system.

Yoga translates to “union” in Sanskrit, an ancient language of India. Given its broad meaning, the practice has varied locally and abroad. In addition, there are variations in certain disciplines — which can have a Hinduism, Buddhism or Jainism influence — but it is dependent on the type of schools, practices and goals one is pursuing.

In the U.S., it’s become popular for various outcomes. Whether it be for physical, mental or spiritual pleasure, yoga has served as a peaceful outlet for many without it impacting their religious beliefs. While Lindell claimed it’s “spiritually dangerous,” many in the area have responded.

Heather Worthy, a Christian and yoga instructor in Springfield, only had four people attend her class following the sermon.

“It’s so frustrating,” Worthy told the Springfield News-Leader. “The whole thing is quite ludicrous to me.”

Worthy felt attacked, and she wasn’t alone.

With about a dozen yoga classes in the Springfield area, Amanda Davis has spent her last 12 years as an instructor.

“Yoga doesn’t prescribe to any religion, and I don’t think people understand that so they get false ideas about it,” Davis said, one week after a Florida gunman killed two people and injured five at a yoga studio.
