NEWS : 'Uber baby' gets b'day treat from Uber's Big Daddy

Last December, a newborn in Delhi grabbed headlines after being born in an Uber cab. Reportedly , the baby's mother called the cab after emergency calls for an ambulance went unanswered, and she went into labour in the cab on her way to the hospital.

The baby was named after the cab company as well. Now, barely a week after his first birthday, the baby and his family met Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, who hosted a private birthday celebration for him, along with Amit Jain, president, Uber India.

Kalanick also announced a scholarship fund of $12,000 (Rs 8.14 lakh) for the child's higher education after he turns 18. Travis also gifted the baby a bunny stuffed toy, similar to what he had as a child.
Uber recently said it is targeting to attach at least one million drivers to its operation by 2018. As the taxi aggregator urged ex-servicemen to become "entrepreneurs" under its `UberSHAAN' initiative, defence ministry officials sought a special package for former defence personnel to become their driver-partners.
'UberSHAAN' initiative was launched in partnership with Maruti and the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) last September.
Secretary of ex-service men welfare department under the defence ministry, Prabhu Dayal Meena, said some ground work has al ready been done by Uber and their executives are in touch with Rajputana Rifles in Delhi.

Stating that people retire early from defence services and need to find new jobs, Meena said becoming driverpartner of Uber could be an attractive proposition. "But ex-servicemen need some special package," he said.
Meena was sharing platform with Uber founder and CEO Travis Kalanick and other senior men in uniform besides NSDC managing director and CEO Manish Kumar.
