New Delhi: Few days ago we reported to you about heroic Muhammad Yunus, who saved a pregnant woman stranded in Chennai rains, and later the couple named their baby girl after Yunus.

Here's another such story, this time in the national capital, where a baby born in a Uber cab is named after the firm, Uber.

Uber driver Shahnawaz Khan was on his daily routine ferrying people across the the national capital in his cab. A woman from Devli in south Delhi called him asking him to be taken to a government hospital. He initially thought of declining, but, after realising that the client had to be dropped to a hospital, decided to make the trip.
She was with other two women. Shahnawaz drove the trio towards the Safdarjung hospital but he had to halt in between as the woman, Babli, cried that the baby was coming. Khan initially didn't know what to do in this situation but with the help of two other women he turned the cab into a labour room and help Babli deliver the baby.

“I pulled out the towels from the seats and poured some drinking water into a bowl. The child was born within minutes and I was really happy to see that he was responding,” Shahnawaz told TOI.

Without wasting time Shahnawaz then rushed the woman to the hospital.
“The doctors asked if I am her husband. I narrated the entire incident after which they congratulated me. I am very happy. There’s nothing better than this. After all, money is not everything in the world,” Shahnawaz said.

The woman's family now wants Shahnawaz to name the child ‘Uber’ in a ceremony on Sunday.
