A boy has been named Lockdown by a couple in Madhya Pradesh’s Sheopur district.
The new-born has been named Lockdown basically to stand as one to defeat the novel coronavirus on the appeal made by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The newborn was born to Raghunath Mali and his wife Manju.
Both are residents of Bachheri village in Sheopur district, at a private hospital on April 6.
When asked about the reason behind naming his son as “Lockdown”, which evokes feelings of anxiety among people in view of the ongoing three-week restrictions on movement, Mali, a farmer, said it would forever remind them about these unprecedented times.
“My wife gave birth to a boy on Monday. When it comes to mention his name on birth certificate, I and my wife decided to name him ‘Lockdown’,” Mali said.
The farmer also said that his wife did not dislike the idea. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given a call for a 21-day lockdown to protect the country from coronavirus.
