World Cricket Legend - India's Sachin Tendulkar played his 200th and final Test Match last week in Mumbai, India against West Indies.

Here's a look again (updated) at all his Test Centuries from the 1st one at Old Trafford, Manchester, Englad to the 51st and last Test Century at Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town, South Africa.

Google I/O Purchase has been cancelled - Very dissapointing

I was all excited that finally I would be going to Google I/O when I saw the message on Google I/O Registration Page.. "We have a ticket for you"... but my mistake I had the wrong CC in my Wallet. But I did update it right away and got a email from Google Wallet saying my purchase has been updated. But when I logged in to my wallet account I see this.. Very disappointing...

Martin Luther King - Timeline of Events (Mapped!)

Today January 21st is Martin Luther King Day in United States. Its a federal holiday here in United States celebrating Martin Luther King’s birthday (January 15th, 1929). Martin Luther King Day is observed on 3rd Monday in January every year.

Here’s “Martin Luther King” journey map which I created couple of years ago. It maps out important events in Martin Luther King’s life. The map automatically moves on to the next event in Rev. King’s life. You can however manually move forward/back by clicking on the arrows located at the bottom left on the map.

Map of Recent Worldwide Shootings

I had created a Map of World wide shootings a while back. Last I updated it was after the tragedy at Virginia Tech. I did not want to revisit this page or was hoping that I would not have to update this page ever. Sadly with the tragic events of last Friday I revisited the mashup and updated it. Here it is: Recent Worldwide School Shootings.
Our prayers and condolences to the family and friends of those who left us so soon.

Mapping Hurricane Sandy Tweets

Hurricane Sandy is barreling towards the East Coast with widespread flooding and destruction predicted. One way to gauge what's happening on the ground is by looking at the tweets from the region as shown in this Google Maps Mashup I created. Along with tweets (which automatically pop up every couple of seconds), the map also has a KML overlay from NOAA of Tropical Warnings and the Hurricane Path which are clickable.
