Twelve babies were on the 12/12/2012 considered a special day, at the Jalpaiguri Sadar hospital here, hospital sources said.

Twelve babies were born today at the hospital and all the deliveries were normal, hospital Superintendent B Majumdar said.

All the 12 babies are fine, Majumdar added.

Today’s date, 12-12-12, is considered auspicious by some, doomed by others, and just plain easy to remember by many.

December, 12, 2012 will be the last date of its kind - when all three numerical in a date are the same - for the next 88 years. The next time this will happen is on January 1, 2101, or 01-01-01.PTI
