SIMPLY TWO-RIFFIC ... Feb. 22 wasn't just any Tuesday. It was a palindrome day where the date can be read the same backward and forward (2/22/2022). It was also a big deal at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, where twins Minika and Mishika Adlakha were born to first-time parents Prachi Adlakha and Rahul Taneja, who live in Fremont. "I am generally bad with numbers, but these are a set of numbers that I will always remember," Taneja said in a statement. "This is literally a once-in-a-lifetime day for my family." The girls, who were born a week early, came into the world at 8:44 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. Their names mean "beautiful and precious gifts from God," according to Stanford Children's Health. On Tuesday, the facility recorded a total of 15 deliveries, including the twins. The hospital's Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn typically delivers 4,500 babies each year, which breaks down to about a dozen babies per day.
