I'm just one in a billion!

With the birth of a baby girl named Asha - 'Faith' in Hindi - India's population officially hit 1 billion today, an event marked with fanfare and concern over the nation's too-rapid growth. Astha was born to Anjana and Ashok Arora at 5:05 a.m. this morning, putting India in an exclusive club with China as the only nations with populations exceeding 1 billion.

Now if any country messes with us, all we have to do is jump at the same time to wipe out the enemy. :)

The name ia Aastha, not Asha and Aastha means faith......Asha means hope.

Yeah I know I mistyped it, and since MetaFilter doesn't have an edit function, I couldn't change it, but I did type the name Astha [according to yahoo. Aastha according to TOI.] towards the middle of the post. Thanks for correcting me though.
