I thought the baby might be Muslim because of the name but don't think so bc of the parents names. Sounds like the 6 billionth was. Nevertheless let's hope she has a happy and good life. I think population is only a problem because we don't handle it properly. All the inequalities in the world. We have more than enough food and resources to support everyone.

There's this cool new scifi series set in 2149 called Terra Nova. The premise is that we've destroyed the Earth with all our pollution and environmental madness. There's also a two child policy the world over with 'population police' that go around to check to make sure ppl are following the law and jails ppl who break it.

There's also that crazy scary Indian movie I mentioned before called "the last girl" or something like that where there are so few girls left because of female infanticide; a nightmare future follows especially for the girl. Such a SHAME this is still being practiced today. --J.

Indian baby picked as world's 'seven billionth' person
Baby Nargis, India's seven billionth baby.

A baby born in India has been declared the world's seven billionth person by child rights group Plan International.

Baby Nargis was born at 07:25 local time (01:55GMT) in Mall village in India's Uttar Pradesh state.

Plan International says Nargis has been chosen symbolically as it is not possible to know where exactly the seven billionth baby is born.

The United Nations estimated that on Monday 31 October, the world's population would reach seven billion.

However, the UN itself has decided not to identify a specific child as the seven billionth person.

Earlier on Monday, the Philippines also declared a symbolic seven billionth baby, a girl born in a Manila hospital.
'Good luck'

Every minute, 51 babies are born in India, 11 of them in the most populous state, Uttar Pradesh.

Nargis was born to Vinita and Ajay Kumar on Monday morning in a small government-run hospital in Mall village, nearly 50km (31 miles) from the state capital, Lucknow, a Plan International official told the BBC.

The daughter of a poor farmer, Nargis was chosen as the seventh billionth baby to focus attention on the ills of female foeticide and India's skewed sex ratio, the organisation said.

Hundreds of thousands of female foetuses are aborted in India every year, even though sex-selective terminations and the use of ultrasound technology for foetal sex-determination are illegal there.

Photos of baby Nargis were shown at a function attended by nearly 250 villagers at the hospital, the BBC's Ram Dutt Tripathi reports from Mall.

Health officials presented the birth certificate to her father at the event.

"We were praying all along for a daughter," Ajay Kumar said. "She is Lakshmi [Hindu goddess of wealth], she will bring us good luck," he said.

A street play staged at the event on the importance of the girl child saw many moist eyes among the audiences, our correspondent says.

The person chosen as the world's symbolic six billionth person, Adnan Mevic - who was photographed in hospital in 1999 with the then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan - is now 12 years old.

His family are living in relatively poor conditions in Sarajevo and have expressed disappointment that since they were visited by Mr Annan, they have heard nothing more from the UN.

It is thought that this could be one reason why the UN has decided not to name a seven billionth child.

Yes, Hindus really need to all convert to Islam to stop them killing their baby girls.
