Still, her mother and father were unwilling to accept that their daughter was an alien.

Doctors at a hospital near New Delhi confirmed that she suffered from a severe case of hydrocephalus, like the famous 1970's philosopher Zippy the Pinhead.

Dr Sandeep Vaishya, Director of Neurosurgery at Fortis Memorial Research Institute, who is treating Roona, said, "I was surprised when I saw the baby for the first time. Even though I had seen her pictures, I wasn't expecting the head to be so big. Her head measures 94 cm, in similar cases the average measurement is around 50-60 cm." roona4

Roona's mother, Fatima Khatoon, says, "When she was born, I wondered why do children of poor people like us suffer this fate? Why is fate cruel to us? Why do rich people who can afford to cure their kids never get diseases like this?"

Roona's father Abdul, 19, added, "Even though our neighbors come and play with her, my parents have refused to acknowledge her existence, since she was born."
