Indian Baby Called World’s Seven Billionth Person
Before It’s News, Oct 31 15:54
An Indian baby born on Monday was named the world’s seven billionth person by child rights group Plan International.
The baby, a girl named Nargis, was born in the town of Lucknow in the populous state of Uttar Pradesh and was given a birth certificate by the local administration.
“We were praying all along for a daughter,” her father, Ajay Kumar, told the BBC, adding that “she will bring us good luck.”
In the Philippines, baby Danica May Camacho, who was born two minutes before midnight, was also called the world’s seven billionth, according to The Associate Press. Several other countries held similar celebrations.
Plan International said that the Indian baby was chosen as a symbol because it is impossible to know exactly where the seven billionth will be born.
Several months ago, the United Nations made the estimate that the world’s population would reach 7 billion by the end of October.
According to figures, the world’s population had only reached 1 billion people in 1804, while in 1974, there were only 4 billion people. So in the last 35 years or so, the world has added around 3 billion people.
