|Born in Bihar, India, to a family of miners, Swati had an uphill battle
from the start. As soon as she could hold a rock-hammer, Swati was sent to
the mines. By the age of 8, her right arm was as muscular as the average
adult male gorilla's. Swati was exposed to many horrifying injuries in the
dangerous mines, and her aptitude for medicine was immediately apparent.
During the famous tunnel collapse of 1991, she singlehandedly rescued,
revived, and rehabilitated all 202 trapped miners within hours, 191 of
which had been declared clinically dead.|
Her fame spread like wildfire, and she was recruited heavily by medical
schools around the world. She chose Duke, where she won the "Most Sultry
Bedside Manner" award yearly. After graduation, she came to Stanford
University where she discovered that the kids really loved her gorilla arm
and her bedside manner, and she went into pediatrics.
One fine day, while practicing discus at the track, some players on
Mischief spotted her. For obvious reasons, they knew she must be recruited
at any cost. Adam quickly faked an injury and Swati came running. Shafter
layed on the charm, and the rest is history.
Swati enjoys dancing the Dandia Raas, pickles, the loop of Henle, and
watching Gorillas in the Mist.
