Free rides for 5 years: Mom gave birth to baby in a cab and received amazing welcome gift!

Babies are a gift to the world but some of them receive gifts as soon as they open their eyes for the first time.  This is the story of a baby boy who was born in an Ola cab and got the best welcoming gift ever.

21-year-old Ishwari Singh Vishwakarma gave birth to a beautiful baby boy as she hailed a cab to go to the hospital. The mother was in labour when she got on Ola cab but she couldn’t hold the baby in and ended up giving birth inside the cab. This little bundle of joy was born on October 2, during the wee hours in Ola. To make it memorable, Ola made a lovely gesture to Ishwari by gifting her and the baby free rides for 5 years.

“My wife’s expected delivery date was October 24 but in the wee hours of October 2, she started experiencing labour pains, so we booked a cab in the morning to go to Kamla Nehru Hospital, and at around 7.20 am, the cab driver arrived for pick up at our residence in Kondhwa area,” her husband Ramesh Singh Vishwakarma said, reports The Free Press Journal. This kind of goodwill phenomenon with cab-services and airlines around the world has become a common one.  Ola also shared a tweet on Twitter saying “Congratulations, it’s a boy! Ishwari delivered a baby in our cab. We’re giving them 5 years worth free rides”. What more, as a part of goodwill, Ola sent the same driver to pick up the mother and her baby after their discharge from the hospital.
