A baby girl born at the 60 Para Field Hospital of the Indian Army in quake-hit Sinamangal in Nepal, has been named "Bharati".

The entire field hospital celebrated the moment as they and members of the Kathmandu Medical College (KMC) named the girl Bharati Pudasaini.

"Since the hospital was already occupied with earthquake victims and also because the building was not safe, the members of KMC wanted the delivery to be done here. It is our pleasure to have assisted in all possible ways. We are extremely happy for the parents," said Lt. Colonel R.K. Yadav of the Indian Army.

Bhawana Pudasaini, a resident of Duwakote, Bhaktapur, gave birth to Bharati at 12:01 p.m. in the field hospital with the assistance of gynaecologists Dr Anu Bajracharya and Dr Rojina Manandhar.
