Tendulkar described India's historic series win on Pakistan soil in March-April as "massive".

"It happe´┐Żed after almost 15 years, and because of that, it was about far more than just cricket. We were treated wonderfully by the Pakistani people. There had been security
concerns earlier, but once we got there, the hospitality we received was remarkable. I don't think we'll ever forget that. The people made it a memorable tour for us."


How nice that the after-match went so well. I bet the Police didn't have to confiscate passports.

I know. This might sound a bit radical now, but aside from their strategy of "Divide and Conquer" (Which is how they actually got power in India), I don't see a real reason for the split. Hindus and Muslims in the subcontinent had been living peacefully since practically 700 AD, which was something like 160 years after Muhammed.

While we're on the subject of the British being somewhat "interesting", what's the deal with the Kohinoor? I've been hearing stuff about it (yeah, I know it is a crown jewel, that this is mostly random, and that it came from India), but how did it get in the hands of the King/Queen of GB?

Just wondering.

Dismiss Tendulkar, get US $1000!


He is worth $1000 today? He was some years ago.
