A man in Tripura wants to name his newborn boy ‘Lockdown’ for he was born a couple of days ago at a hospital here amid the nationwide lockdown.
The man is a migrant labourer currently living in Tripura.
Sources informed that even though the name is yet to be finalised, the man, however, is hell-bent to name him ‘Lockdown’.
The man is identified as Sanjay and his wife as Puja and both have come all the way from Rajasthan.
Even though the duo tried to return to Rajasthan when the lockdown was called, however, due to the cancellation of all train they could not.
Sanjay along with his pregnant wife and 16 others were living at a camp in Badharghat School and the administration was providing them food, water and the essential medicines.
Puja was hospitalised at the Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital four days back where she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
She has been discharged from the hospital on Friday and were sent back to the camp in Badharghat School
A medical check-up was also organised for the inmates of the camp on Saturday.
When asked by doctors as to what name had he thought for his child, Sanjay said, “I think I will name him Lockdown.”
Earlier this month, a baby boy in Uttar Pradesh was named ‘Sanitizer’.
In fact, names like ‘Corona’, ‘Covid’, and ‘Lockdown’ have already been given to newborns across the country.
