How many of you know someone in your family or friends or relatives who is a twin brother or a sister? I personally know only couple of my friends who are twins but if you go to a village in Kerala, almost every other house will have twins in their family.
Kodinji village in rural India in Kerala is known as "twin village." The remote village is home to more than 204 sets of twins
According to wikipedia, The number of living human twins in the world has been estimated to be approximately 125 million in 2006 roughly 1.9% of the world population.
With about 45 twins per 1,000 live births, this village in North Kerala has six times more twins than the global average -- and women from Kodinju married off to far away places are also known to give birth to twins.
Latest surveys at the start of the year, found that there were 204 sets of twins.Some locals also believe it is to do with the water as Kodinji is surrounded by water in the fields and during the monsoon season it becomes inaccessible from heavy rains.
Most of the twins are non-identical, which means that the mothers are producing extra eggs that are fertilized at the same time. Identical twins develop from a single embryo that splits after fertilization.
Great mother nature....
