My wife Shilpa had completed her nine months in November and we decided to get the baby delivered on Friday. We wanted the delivery to happen on 11:01 am and that's how it happened," Dr Viral Vaghela was quoted as telling the newspaper.
Bhopal's Monu Mehtele timed the delivery of the baby to perfection with her son being born on 11.11.11 at 11.11am. In total, around 50 babies were born in the city with many even opting for caesarean section to make sure that they give birth on that day.
