a. ) Am a sucker for useless movie trivia so here's one :
The sequence of the maths quiz question of 3 X 9 and the subsequent clash of the planets in Ishaan's mind is taken from the Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snowgoons in which Calvin comes with an answer of 6 to the question of "6+5 = " . For the record, the sequence is on pages 38 & 39 and Ishaan's answer was 3.
b.) The look on Ponting's face in the Perth post match press conference.Priceless doesn't quite sum it up!
