  1. Who will get Bharat Ratna? Sachin or Vishy Anand.
    I will vote for Vishy Anand who has successfully defended world championship
    3rd time in a row from 2007. Chess is more competetive than cricket
    which is well known in almost all countries.

  2. Luxury watches are totally flawless except the heavy price
    tags, which make them inaccessible for many people. Sapphire crystal whether genuine or synthetic is the preferred material of luxury watch makers.
    Many luxury watch companies actually prohibit sale of their watches online by
    their dealer network.
