India wins

And the pain of the 1999 defeat against Pakistan is relieved. As the afternoon progressed, it was deja vu. Sachin batting gloriously, the tail just 2 wickets away. Thankfully Swann isn't Saqlain Mushtaq, and we won.

Amazing Innings Chenthil.You compared Sachin to Seabiscuit and rightly so. He gives so much joy and hope to many Indians and certainly to me.

I've really enjoyed reading your blog, and was hoping you could lend some perspective.

I will be joining the Foreign Service on Jan. 5, and am writing to inquire about life in Chennai. I'm very much interested in possibly preffing the city high on my bid-list (assuming it is on the list), and am trying to get a feel for the security situation there, especially as it pertains to women. In your opinion, could my wife, a white 25 year old, move about freely during the day without serious concern for her safety?

Also, is there much concern for terrorism in Chennai? Would the recent attacks in Mumbai change your analysis? Does the potential for conflict between India and Pakistan bear on the safety situation in Chennai?

Thanks so much for any thoughts or advice you could lend. If you wouldn't mind, please respond to my gmail address:
