24th October is world polio day. Here’s a thank-you note from Bill-Gates:
Hajj 2012 is here. Hajis have started walking toward the Mina camps. Today they’ll all move to Mina and then tomorrow is the actual Hajj day (Yaum-e-Arafah). A lot of Muslims around the world who could not make it to Makkah this year, want to watch the proceedings on TV live, and some times our TV channels are not helping. Here is a list of links and live-streams that you can use to watch Hajj proceedings live online right on your computer.
You can look forward to following events during the Hajj 2012 live for Saudi Arabia.
- 24th October – Transition of all Hajis from Makkah to Mina camps
- 25th October – Morning – Change of Kaab Cover (Ghilaf-e-Kaabah)

This 100 centuries set contains 51 test centuries and today’s 49th ODI century that he completes in 188 test and 462 ODI matches. And he’s done that in a tenure of 23 years. I’ve not even watched cricket for that long, and he’s been playing it and he’s always been in top 10 batsmen. What a player he is.
While I keep supporting Pakistan cricket and will continue to do that, all I can have for Sachin is admiration and respect. I don’t think I’ll see such a player again in my life time at least.
