The disease of hydrocephalus is a difficulty in the outflow of cerebrospinal fluid from the brain, the impossibility of its adsorption.
The causes of hydrocephalus are not fully understood, but hydrocephalus can be treated successfully. True if you are not in India.
Although canonical Hinduism is a monotheistic religion (this is a surprise to many), it is filled with many incarnations of God, i.e. the main, well-known gods, their avatars, “vehicles” of the gods and their avatars and other incarnations of the One God.
As a rule, Hindus worship several gods in their understanding, although in fact they worship one god, only in several of his incarnations.
And this makes a cruel joke with the Hindus – every deviation from the norm of human appearance is considered the embodiment of God. This makes it impossible to treat congenital deformities, including hydrocephalus.
A child with hydrocephalus is considered the embodiment of God. It doesn’t matter which one, Ganesha, Garuda, Kali, Vishnu, Brahma, Shiva or some other incarnation.
Such children are worshiped in India as a deity and often die without receiving the necessary treatment.
