Come June, not just the city but the entire country could well have its attention focussed on Niloufer Hospital here. The conjoined twins from Guntur travelled a long distance to reach the hospital giving a new issue for the medical fraternity to discuss and debate even as common man watches on expectantly.

Will the surgery be successful? The hospital has scheduled the separation surgery for June choosing to take adequate time to study the case in depth and work out strategies for the operation.

Some three years ago, the conjoined twins of Iran made international headlines and people across the globe joined prayers for their survival. But alas, the prayers were not answered.

Doctors here, however, sound confident of pulling it through.

Will they be able to?
