President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched India's biggest tax reform, Goods and Service Tax(GST) at the stroke of midnight on Friday and what added a unique flavor to this launch was the birth of a child in Rajasthan.

Probably at this time many children in India would have been born, but what made this child special was the name bestowed upon him. As he was born at midnight at 12.02 AM in Beawa, Rajasthan, his mother decided to name him 'GST', symbolising the biggest launch in the country.

A picture of the child and mother is revealed, marking the celebration of birth of baby GST.
