Today is the 6th day of the 6th month of the 6th year after 2000! That's 6-6-06. Or if you like putting your month before the day, American style, that's 6-6-06. Drop the zero for no reason except that it looks more dramatic without the zero, and you have 6-6-6! Six-six-six! Shock and horror! The Number of the Beast! The Day of Evil!
Also my friend Salil's birthday, though he's no beast. Well ... say no more.
Happy Beast Day. Wherever you are, I hope you are fending him off as best you can. Don't laugh. Remember, Mahendra Dhoni ended his innings with three sixes in a row. What does that tell you, eh? You think it's a mere coincidence that this happened on 6-6-6?
Oh, Dhoni did that on the 5th?
