Awesome day: Sachin’s world record 12K, saurav crossing 7K, sensex below 10K and now vishy anand winning with black against Kramnik

What an awesome day for india:

First sachin played absolutely brilliant innings of 88 (hard luck he did not score another century), and while doing so has surpassed Brian Lara for highest individual test score, then crossed 12000 individual runs in Test cricket.

Remarkable stuff : the kind of commitment which he puts in cricket is amazing. After playing for 19 years at international level it takes greatness to have the same zeal and ambitions of youngster. Bravo sachin … may you cross atleast 15K in test cricket if not more 🙂

Saurav ganguly has declared retirement after this series, and he looks like a man on mission to prove everyone wrong. I like saurav ganguly’s batting when he is in full flow. The kind of innings he has played especially after his comeback are truly admirable.
Saurav, we will miss you.

Absolute mayhem at share market where sensex has closed below 10,000 today. Who would have believed that 10 month’s ago when it was hovering around 21,000.
In my opinion this is a wonderful opportunity to pick up good stocks at very low level.
Many companies are trading below their book value prices.  Excellent opportunity for Long term investments.

And now the epitome, vishwanathan anand has won third match against kramnik with black pieces in world chess championship.

He first played some daring opening using slav and then not hesitated with double pawns and king safety issue, and gone ahead with the amazhing attack which ensured him one full point with black.

This means he has put kramnik under tremendous pressure by taking important early lead. And i’m sure kramnik and his team will come up with some novelty tommorow to try for full point.

This championship match has promised excellent games ahead in store after looking at game 2 and game 3.

Great show vishy … All the best.
