I always thought that Boxing Day was on 26th Dec. When I was working with Avery's we always had a holiday on 26th Dec. on account of Boxing Day. But you see I am living in INCREDIBLE INDIA and we always pride ourselves in giving surprises.
So when I went of Fort Kochi on Christmas day evening to watch the rolling waves, inhale the balmy sea breeze and see the holiday crowd milling around, I was surprised to see boxing matches conducted by District Boxing council for school and college students both boys and girls. There was huge enthusiastic crowd watching the bouts with great fascination and admiration.
We have not produced a Mohamed Ali or Mike Tyson yet but looking at the fights and the ferocity of the participants I am confident we will soon have a world champion. Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.
I take this opportunity to wish you all, my dear friends, a very happy, prosperous, healthy and successful new year.
