A woman from Uttar Pradesh gave birth to twins on a moving train -- the second time in four years that she has delivered twins in a train! The bizarre coincidence took place on Sunday on board the Kushinagar Express. Zubin Nisha, along with her husband, was travelling from Mumbai to Gonda for delivery when she went into labour in the general compartment between Unnao and Lucknow.
As the train chugged ahead, alarmed fellow passengers cleared the area around berth 63 and made room for other women passengers to attend to the woman. Some passengers called railway staff and alerted a medical team stationed at Lucknow of the "developments on the train". The medical team was kept on standby mode. Before the train could reach Lucknow, however, the woman gave birth to twin boys. Both the babies were handed over to the waiting medical team, safe and healthy. The mother and the twins were immediately wheeled away to the Queen Mary Hospital in Lucknow, officials said. Habibullah, the proud father of the twins, said they were going to their village Kundera in Gonda when his wife went into labour in Kanpur. But before he could decide on de-boarding the train, the train moved, and he was left with no option but to wait till the train reached Lucknow. "I am very thankful to Allah and my fellow passengers who helped me a lot," Habibullah said, adding that he and Zuben have four-year-old twins, a boy and a girl, who also arrived in a moving train. Cradling the two babies, Habibullah said he was feeling on "top of the world" and shared the amusement of his co-passengers that his wife had delivered twins twice in a moving train. "Well, indeed this is some sort of a record, but what can I say," he said, sounding a bit surprised himself. "I can call this a rare blessing of God Almighty that my kids come into this world in such a manner," he said. Raj Babbar among five new AICC spokespersons The Congress on Sunday appointed five spokespersons to bolster its media department. However, a surprise element was that while the party retained the existing spokespersons - Renuka Chowdhury, Sandip Dikshit and P C Chacko - it dropped Rashid Alvi. Congress Working Committee member in-charge of West Bengal Shakeel Ahmed appears to have replaced Alvi as the party's Muslim face in the media. Other new faces are Raj Babbar, Mohan Prakash, Meem Afzal and Bhakta Charan Das. While Babbar is a Lok Sabha member from Uttar Pradesh, Das, a former Union minister, is an MP from Odisha. The appointments assume significance, as the beleaguered Congress is struggling hard with a spate of scams and scandals hitting it hard. The party is looking for image-makeover with an eye on upcoming polls. A surprise inclusion is film star-turned politician Raj Babbar, who has emerged as a strongman in Uttar Pradesh, fighting it out against the Samajwadi Party and building up the Congress. The team has been largely prepared with an eye on the media in North India, especially the Hindi heartland, with the inclusion of senior Congress Working Committee (CWC) members Shakeel Ahmed and Mohan Prakash, besides Meem Afzal in the team of AICC spokespersons. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's son Sandeep Dikshit is seen as a rising star, as he has been fielded even in the past to initiate or participate in key debates in parliament. Sandeep Dikshit has felicity of expression and can speak both in English and Hindi.
