NEW DELHI – This is the three-eyed calf that is being hailed as a spiritual icon across India.
The baby animal has been hailed as a blessing by Hindus after being born with a third eye in the middle of its forehead two weeks ago.
Proud owner Meghala described baby Shiva as a miracle, while many believe the calf is the reincarnation of three-eyed Hindu God and namesake Shiva.
The cow has become a major attraction in Tamil Nadu, southern India, with hundreds flocking to catch a glimpse of the ‘deity’ and pray to it.
Hindu children have been touching the cute animal on the head, believing it will bring good fortune.
