According to News18, the woman identified as Rita Yadav, a resident of Ambedkar Nagar, Uttar Pradesh went into labour while she was travelling in Shramik Express from Mumbai.

She was then sent to the district hospital in Madhya Pradesh’s Burhanpur where she gave birth to her son and named him ‘Lockdown Yadav’, reported Times Of India.

In a tweet, CM of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, broke the news and congratulated the woman.

In the video shared by the CM, the woman was seen thanking the authorities for arranging transportation to send them to their native place.

I am sure the parents naming their kids as ‘Sanitier’, ‘Covid’ and ‘Lockdown’ might have brainstormed a lot. But, I wonder how the kids will react to it when they grow up. What do you think of this new naming trend? Tell us.
