A day of downs!!!

12th April 2006..
Would be a day to remember for a long time..

It didnt start off well... my sister had some burns while forcibly opening up the pressure cooker in the morning while cooking...
Though nothing much but still it was not that great a start.

Later in the day , it was a routine day of work, but the Indian top order collapsed like the cycles in the cycle stand , as Navjot Singh Sidhu puts it. The local lad Dhoni really played well , but narrowly missed his century. India did put up a respectable score on board, but not enough to stop the English , who finally won a match in this series. They have already lost the series though.

The stock market also saw a huge fall of more than 300 points in a single day. the highest since the 17th May 2004 Fall (ie on the Black Monday ) ...

Then , last but not the least, our beloved old neighbour , Dr Rajkumar passed away.
The news was spread around 2 pm , and we all all got the mail from the HR to leave for the day to avoid any problems.

I did remember the 31st July inciddent years back, when DR was abducted by Veerappan.
I did hurry home, but there were a lot of riots on the way , buring of tyres etc ..
I am happy that I managed to reach home safely without any problems. All shops were forcibly closed.

The only good part was that we might have an holiday tomorrow....
