Conjoined twins who were abandoned by their parents have now landed two jobs and two salaries.
Sohna and Mohna Singh, from Punjab, India, are working for the first time having won government jobs.
The 19-year-old twins will be grafting as electricians at the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited and earning the equivalent of £100 a month - salaries which have thrilled Sohna and Mohna.
The twins had been living at a shelter ever since they were abandoned by their parents when they were babies in New Delhi.
From a young age, they have shown a knack for fixing things and would try to help out by attempting to mend any broken appliances at their shelter.
Speaking to the Independent, the twins said: “We are thankful to the Punjab government for recognising our talent.”

Officials at the power company were impressed with the twins after they visited a training site and demonstrated a keen interest in electrics
Venu Parsad, chief managing director of PSPCL, told The Telegraph that the twins showed great technical knowledge and took them on under a disabled person quota.
In a tweet by NDTV, Sohna and Mohna said: “We thank the Punjab government and the Pingalwara institution, which schooled us, for the opportunity.”
The twins have two hearts, kidneys and spinal cords, as well as two pairs of arms, but share a liver, gallbladder, spleen and legs.
Doctors refused to separate the twins due to the risky nature of the procedure which could lead to the death of one of them.
