Maa Tujhe Salaam – Happy Republic Day

Happy Republic Day to you all.

India seal a historic win at Perth

WHAT a win for India at Perth. After what happened in Sydney – the defeat, the racial slurs and the general feeling whether the tour would indeed go on, this win should rank as the best Test win for India – both at home and abroad. Also, this was one Test match where it was a complete Team effort – Tendulkar and Dravid set it up in the 1st innings and Sehwag, Laxman, Dhoni and Pathan did in the 2nd innings. The bowlers were the real stars of the show – R.P, Pathan, Ishant Sharma and Kumble set it up for India in both innings. There were even unlikely stars – RP scored a very handy 30 in the 2nd innings while Sehwag picked up a couple of very useful wickets in the 2nd innings.

Enjoy the last day’s highlights:

Happy New Year


Happy New Year to all of you – may all your cherished dreams come true and may this year bring peace, happiness and joy to the world.

Cancun Trip in December 2007

My wife and I visited Cancun from December 22nd – December 27th, 2007.It was a wonderful trip and i would like to share the places that we visited:

Day 1: Visit to the Isla Mujeres island – this included a lot of activities such as snorkeling, lunch and a trip around the island on a golf cart

Day 2: Trip to Chichen Itza, one of the 7 wonders of the world – this was a conducted bus tour in which they serve breakfast, unlimited drinks 🙂 and lunch.

Day 3: Resort break and Playa Del Carmel – during this day, we enjoyed the resort and its facilities such as the swim-by bar, swimming pool overlooking the beach and also the beach. We also checked out the beautiful beach at Playa Del Carmel where we also shopped around in the local stores.

Day 4: Xel-Ha water park in the morning – here, we did the Sea Trek, where you put on an oxygen helment and then hit the sea bed and walk on it. There, you can see a variety of marine life – it is quite an experience

Day 4: Tulum in the afternoon – this is another ancient Mayan ruin overlooking the ocean

Day 5: Checkout from the hotel

Overall, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable tour – highly recommended.
