The operation has ended after 27 hours and doctors say it was successful, the BBC
reports. "Lakshmi is stable and sound," Dr. Sharan Patil, the lead
surgeon, told a nationally broadcast news conference. "We will keep a
close watch on her for the next 48 to 72 hours and won't move from the
hospital until she stabilises." He added that he was "optimistic about
the child's survival."
