Did you know?

There are some interesting points that I came across in various newspapers and magazines. Please read, enjoy and comment on them (if you want to!!):

1) The Pope is Europe's only absolute monarch!!

2) Fred Trueman, who was the first bowler to have taken 300 wickets in test-matches (Final Tally of 307 wickets), owned a Rolls-Royce with the number plate reading "FST 307"!!

3) Twinkle Khanna owns an interior designing store "WHITE WINDOW" which won the Elle Decor International Design Award in 2005!!

4) "The Art of War", a 2400-year old book by the Chinese General Sun Tzu is said to be the favourite book of Luis Felipe Scolari, the present coach of the Portuguese National Team. He said it helped him guide his team to the finals of Euro 2004 and also help him guide Brazil to victory in the 2002 World Cup finals!!

5) Pele, Puskas, Maradona, Zico, Platini, Zidane and Ronaldinho have all worn the No.10 jersey at some point in their careers!!
