A designer baby is to create desired traits in a child. Today genetic engineers and scientists are working on this.
The six brothers five pandavas and Karan of mahabharat had specific qualities. Yudhisthir was most honest, Bhim strongest, Arjun most skilled, Nakul most handsome and Sahadev was most knowledgeable of all. Similarly, Greatest warrior, Karn was born with armour and earring and had qualities of Sun God.
Their mother Kunti was granted a boon by sage Durvasa. So she was able to get babies from any God she desired. As a result, all her sons had different qualities.
Were all of them genetically designed? Were all of them designer babies ?
