What a day!

An eventful day – this one – October 17, 2008! Let us start from the start of the day. India and Australia face each other in the second test match of the tour. Anil Kumble, the birthday boy misses out due to shoulder injury and Mahendra Singh Dhoni takes charge as a captain. He wins the toss and India marches down to bat, in a batters heaven. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar becomes the highest run getter in Test Cricket surpassing Brian Charles Lara. He scores his 50th Test fifty and goes on to reach the 12000 run marks in Tests. He raises his bat thrice during the day. Sourav Chandidas Ganguly also gets to his own milestone of 7000 Test runs in his last ever international test cricket series. Had India given Babu Moshai* enough chances as they gave Chhota Babu*, the tally would have been no worse than that of the former.

*Sourav and Sachin call each other by these names.

The Sensex has fallen below the 10,000 mark; closes the day at 9975 – 606 points below the opening. Sensex has fallen below the 10,000 point mark for the first time in last 27 months! Its counterpart Nifty has fallen too through the same percentage and closed at 3046. This is not the bottom – that is what I hear the excerpts from the experts point to. Who knows what is there in the future! Nothing is safe here – not the road you travel on, nor the house you sleep and neither the money that you have. A few days like this, and people would enter your house and ask you for money that you have lost in the share market.

In between these fight between the Bull and the Bear and also between Lee and Sachin and the
Aussies and the Indians, I seem to get a bit of lucky. I have been writing this blog for a long time now – and never ever have I seen it being listed by Google – anywhere, for that matter. However, now, if you search with the name of my blog (Thus Spake Tan), you get my blog listed – right at the top! WOW! A dream comes true! A wonderful sight that was! I saved it and am putting it back here, for you to see…
