ONE IN A BIL­LION

India Today - - GLOSSARY - by Shibani Bedi, Nishat Bari and Va­roon P. Anand

The world’s sym­bolic seven bil­lionth baby, Nar­gis, is a celebrity right on ar­rival. Born to farmer par­ents in a com­mu­nity health cen­tre on the out­skirts of Luc­know on Oc­to­ber 31, she al­ready has a Face­book page. But she is not the only one in the spot­light. She shares her seven-year spon­sor­ship, by a child rights NGO Plan In­dia, with six other sym­bolic ba­bies in the coun­try. Her fame re­mains undis­puted though.
