Did you miss what was ‘special’ about 7th of October?

By Angel Chan

DUBAI 8 October 2017: What was so special about yesterday?

For one thing – this kind of day does not come very often in our lives – and mostly when it does – it usually slips by unnoticed.

It’s uniqueness is in the fact that it is a ‘palindrome’ date.

That means you can read it either way


If you read it English language wise from left to right or Arabic or Urdu wise from right to left – it reads the same!


How about that?

Palindromes are words like ‘madam’ or ‘nurses run’.
