10 years ago...

Supriya Tyagi -" On this day one decade back, Indian cricket witnessed an unprecedented transform when they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in the final of inaugural T20 WC, solely by holding their nerves. This victory booked a special place in the hearts of millions of Cricket lovers, for a very young team without its greats, lead by a new captain outclassed teams with far better names.

While Saurav Ganguly as the captain of Indian Cricket Team turned them into fighters from strugglers, it was only Mahendra Singh Dhoni who turned them into Champions from fighters as their captain, and it was this World Cup through which he amplified his silent arrival. Needless to say India carries the same soul of Champions even today. This World Cup gave us unforgettable moments, future heroes and probably the best captain Indian team ever had. As a fan, I remember India getting crowned as World Champions for the first time (even though in T20s), and celebrating the unmatched joy with roommates. :)"

Novel: The Dog Stars (Peter Heller)

Published - 2013, Language - English, Paperback, Pages - 416
ISBN13: 9780755392629

Hig, bereaved and traumatised after global disaster, has three things to live for - his dog Jasper, his aggressive but helpful neighbour, and his Cessna aeroplane. He's just about surviving, so long as he only takes his beloved plane for short journeys, and saves his remaining fuel. But, just once, he picks up a message from another pilot, and eventually the temptation to find out who else is still alive becomes irresistible. So he takes his plane over the horizon, knowing that he won't have enough fuel to get back. What follows is scarier and more life-affirming than he could have imagined. And his story, THE DOG STARS, is a book unlike any you have ever read.

Book - Nightmare at 20,000 Feet (Richard Matheson)

Remember that monster on the wing of the airplane? William Shatner saw it on The Twilight Zone, John Lithgow saw it in the movie-even Bart Simpson saw it. "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" is just one of many classic horror stories by Richard Matheson that have insinuated themselves into our collective imagination.

Here are more than twenty of Matheson's most memorable tales of fear and paranoia, including:

"Duel," the nail-biting tale of man versus machines that inspired Steven Spielberg's first film;

"Prey," in which a terrified woman is stalked by a malevolent Tiki doll, as chillingly captured in yet another legendary TV moment;

"Blood Son," a disturbing portrait of a strange little boy who dreams of being a vampire;

"Dress of White Silk," a seductively sinister tale of evil and innocence.

Personally selected by Richard Matheson, the bestselling author of I Am Legend and What Dreams May Come, these and many other stories, more than demonstrate why he is rightfully regarded as one of the finest and most influential horror writers of our generation.
