We often use the term “Siamese twins”
when we see a similarity in behavior of two persons, who though are
different individuals but show similar behavioral pattern. But in
reality, “Siamese twins” or “Conjoined twins” are those twins who are joined to each other bodily at some identical location.
Calling them “conjoined twins” seems like a misnomer. "Conjoined"
means " to join or become joined together, or to unite," which is
exactly the opposite of what happens in these cases.
twins are formed when identical twinning goes awry and the result is
non formation of two separate individuals. Wherever the embryo stopped
dividing, the twins that would have been two separate identities, melt
back into a single entity. Although there are scattered historical
hints, there are few definitive records of Conjoined twins until the
second millennium, and most of those are quite recent. The most famous
Siamese twins in history are Chang and Eng Bunker from China
who were connected by a short length of skin on their chests. Today
with the advancement of science and technology, such twins are being
separated through surgery to give them individual lives.
has planned to come out
with a new out-of-box serial Amber Dhara
, to be produced by Siddharth
Kumar Tiwari and Vikas Seth of Swastik Pictures, which is going to
explore on this topic of Conjoined twins.
The story is based
on two sisters who are Conjoined twins, each with her own, dreams,
ambitions, and aspirations, but as fate would have it, share the same
body. The role of these two twins is being played by complete new comers.
The serial has some leading artists from TV industry like Paintal
Ambegaonkar, Viju Khote
This concept for the serial is totally novel and is totally an
unexplored arena for most common viewers. It will surely raise some
thought provoking questions in the minds of the viewers. Depending on
how much these twins are joined to each other; one would surely like to
- What would be their day to day life style?
- Will they be separated by surgery and will each lead an independent life or will they be two heads with one heart?
- Does each of them carry the same feelings, the same hope and aspirations or do they both vary in their thought process?
- Will both have the same emotional and intelligence quotient?
- Can they have a normal life if they are separated by surgery? How normal can they be?
Well, questions are many, but guess we need to think and analyse a lot,
to get the answers to these questions. Pour in your thoughts here;
But to know about the story of two Conjoined Twins, Amber and Dhara, we will have to wait and watch the new
serial with a unique concept, Amber Dhara starting from 24th September, at 9 PM,
Monday-Thursday only on Sony ….
