Test Match Series: India v Australia
17-10-2008 at Mohali , Day 1 of 5
India won the toss and decided to bat
India 1st Innings
311 for 5 (85.0 overs)
India's Sachin Tendulkar has set a new record for the most runs scored by a batsman in Test cricket, overtaking the mark set by West Indies' Brian Lara.
Afterwards, having been dismissed for 88 - and becoming the first man to 12,000 runs - he said: "It's definitely the biggest milestone because it's taken me 19 years to get - it's not something that can happen overnight.
"The journey has been fantastic. There have been ups and downs. So many times there have been stones thrown and you have to turn them into milestones.
"I knew I was 14 runs short [when Friday's innings started]. I have just been trying to focus on the game but whoever I see in front of me they have an opportunity to remind me.
"I decided to keep it simple and keep watching the ball."
He spent the tea interval on 13 not out, just one run away from Lara's record. But after the 20-minute break he hit his first ball for three down to third man and saluted the crowd before the Australian fielders went to shake his hand.
Fireworks were set off around the ground.
India's President Pratibha Patil later said Tendulkar had "given joy to millions of Indians", while the country's Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, described the batsman as a genius.
"I congratulate Sachin Tendulkar on becoming the highest run-scorer in Test cricket," said Singh.
"Sachin is truly worthy of the mantle of the greatest run-scorer in Tests. I have been following his cricket and there is no doubt that he is a genius."

Sparks fly over Gilchrist’s comments
Gilchrist's autobiography which centers on the hostilities between the two teams in Australia last summer and saw India threaten to boycott the tour is bound to ruffle a few feathers here. The book questions Tendulkar's honesty throughout the acrimonious Harbhajan Singh-Andrew Symonds incident which occurred during the Test series between the two cricketing powers in Australia last summer. Australia claimed Harbhajan called him a monkey during a match but an independent tribunal later cleared the India off-spinner of the racial charge. The writing is clearly a part of marketing strategy that requires a sensational writing to sell books in Britain and Australia. It is very unfortunate that Gilchrist made such comments about Tendulkar. He should have thought twice before making such comments about Tendulkar, who is a great batsman and widely respected all over the cricketing world.
Zambia faces clean water crisis
There is urgent need for government to sink more bore holes in rural areas. Many boreholes that are in rural areas have not been working well as they have been overused.
Many people in areas such as Kabulwebulwe now fetch water from nearby shallow wells were cows and goats drink from. It is clear that this water poses a health risk. The scenario is not different from other rural areas in South Province, Chief Chikanta’s area where they need more than 200 bore holes. Many urban areas in Zambia however also suffer from lack of water because of low pressure and an increased population. Places like Mandevu Compound have for more than 20 years been having an erratic supply of water forcing people to fetch water from Matero township whose water supply is under rehabilitation. Lack of clean water is a major worry as every year the coming of the rain season sparks a Cholera outbreak which is also triggered by unsafe sanitary conditions.
Japan’s stressed medical system
This is not the first time that a person has lost life due to lack of immediate attention. Japan might boast universal health cover and some of the world's best medical technology, but an acute shortage of doctors is leaving some hospitals unable to treat even the emergency cases. Grueling work hours are discouraging people from entering the medical profession in a country where the population is rapidly ageing, foreign doctors are barred and a swelling public debt caps doctors' salaries. Doctors say they are also suffering as they come under intense emotional and physical stress, prompting some to leave the medical profession or resulting in death due to overwork or even suicide. With the human toll rising all across Japan only hollow promises have been shelved out and nothing concrete has been done to address the situation.
Nominee for 2008 CNN Hero awards
It is wonderful to see a Malawian woman to be nominated by CNN for her valuable work in solely funding a school (at Chigumula) called Jacaranda Foundation in order to help fight the impact of AIDs, a disease that has killed 14 of her family members, including her father and two brothers. The name for her school and its foundation support comes from the Jacaranda tree, which symbolizes hope. Thanks to Da Silva's passion, the school is now thriving in her childhood home of Chigumula and more than 200 children, most of whom are AIDS orphans, receive porridge every morning and education, free of charge. Orphans [in Malawi] are deeply underprivileged, their grandparents try to raise them, with no money, no food, no clothes amidst grueling poverty. Da Silva funds almost entire initiative by herself, sending US$1,000, about one-third of her monthly paycheck, to pay the salaries of 12 teachers and the headmaster, and purchase whatever supplies she can afford. According to UNAIDS, 14 percent of Malawi's adult population is infected with HIV and more than half a million children have been orphaned by the disease.
