Dear all

Two events warrants attention one is the swearing of Sachin Tendulkar as a   Rajya Sabha MP and that of Viswanathan Anand becoming the world Chess champion.  Knowing both Cricket and Chess, I am a bit partial to chess because it is game of sheer individual skill . Anand’s triumph need to be acknowledged by larger recognitions. While we talk of giving a Bharat Ratna to Sachin and make him an  MP or give make Dhoni a Lt Colonal, we are quite partisan while recognising  other individual and their sport in the same platform. Well we can always lament Cricket is a mass hysteria while chess is a sport on the fringe. Jai Ho
