The expected time of arrival of my babies is March 26 and I have decided to name my upcoming baby after as Ganga after the name of the rescue operation that India launched,” Abhijeet told ANI, adding that he is coming to India while his wife has to stay in a Poland’s hospital for her medical safety reasons.

Abhijit ran a restaurant in Kyiv and was trapped in the war after which he was rescued from Ukraine.
