SET Television's latest venture, Amber Dhara seems to have the medical profession in a tizzy. For the liver sharing conjoined twins in this daily are shown to be fraternal( different actresses) According to Dr. Piyush S. Goyal, MD, Honorary Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist,
Wadia Hospital for Women, Parel, this is not possible, for conjoined twins are always monozygotic (identical twins) that is a single fertilized egg splitting to develop into two fetuses. Conjoined twins can only be formed, when such above identical twins fail to completely separate into two individuals.The channel is right in saying that such births are very rare, one in 200,000 births.
However the channel is sticking to its gun, Sanjay Upadhaya, creative director, Sony Entertainment television says that "Our extensive research proves that this is not necessary. and conjoined twins can be non identical as well." Whom to believe now ?
