The uber rich Elon Musk and singer Grimes announced the birth of their first child together on Tuesday, telling fans their son's name is X Æ A-12.The unusual choice immediately had fans guessing what it might mean, and how to pronounce the series of letters and numbers. 

                               In the Shankar directed Kamal starred movie ‘Indian’ [Bharatheeyudu] -  amidst a crowd jostling  in front of Regional Transport Office, Goundamani will at first sight tell  Crazy Mohan,  his name as   Parthasarathi – indicating that it is so typical a brahminical name !! –  Of course, there are many  Parthasarathis’ from Triplicane,  Ranganathans  and Ranganayakis     from Thiruvarangam;  Perundevis from Kanchipuram !!  Periyazhwaar in his ‘Periyazhwaar Thirumozhi’  (Nankam Pathu – Aaram Thirumozhi) devotes 10 songs on the need to name the children after Sriman Narayanan – those who are named after Maha Vishnu will be bestowed with all goodness and their parents will not go to hell is a firm belief.  That is for the believer – do you know any person with the name ‘Periyazhvar’ ? – the name is the subject matter of this post, as also T20I no. 869.

The Treaty of Kuchuk-Kainarji was a peace treaty signed on 21 July 1774, in Küçük Kaynarca (today Kaynardzha, Bulgaria) between the Russian Empire and the Ottoman Empire. Following the Ottoman defeat at the Battle of Kozludzha, the document ended the Russo-Turkish War of 1768–74 and marked a defeat of the Ottomans in their struggle against Russia. The Russians were represented by Field-Marshal Count Pyotr Rumyantsev while the Ottoman side was represented by Musul Zade Mehmed Pasha. The treaty was a most humiliating blow to the once-mighty Ottoman realm.

Ilfov is the county that surrounds Bucharest, the capital of Romania. It used to be largely rural, but, after the fall of communism, many of the county's villages and communes developed into high-income commuter towns, which act like suburbs or satellites of Bucharest. The gentrification of the county is continuing, with many towns in Ilfov, such as Otopeni, having some of the highest GDP per capita levels in the country.

The 2019 Continental Cup, also referred to as the 2019 Romania T20 Cup, was a Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket tournament held in Romania in 2019. The hosts were the defending champions, having the previous edition in 2018. The format was originally to be two groups of three teams played over the first two days, followed by a series of play-off matches. However, after Russia withdrew two days before the tournament, the format was changed to a single round-robin stage followed by a final. The participating teams were hosts Romania, along with Austria, Czech Republic, Luxembourg and Turkey. All five teams played their first matches with T20I status during this tournament, following the decision of the ICC to grant full Twenty20 International status to all its members from 1 January 2019. Austria topped the round-robin stage and went on to defeat the Czech Republic in the final.

Romania is a country located at the crossroads of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe. It borders Bulgaria, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia   and Moldova and has its opening to the Black sea.  Romania is the 12th-largest country in Europe and the 7th most populous member state of the European Union, having approximately 20 million inhabitants. Its capital and largest city is Bucharest.  The River Danube, Europe's second-longest river, rises in Germany's Black Forest and flows in a generally southeasterly direction coursing through ten countries before emptying into Romania's Danube Delta.  Modern Romania was formed in 1859 through a personal union of the Danubian Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia. The new state, officially named Romania since 1866, gained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1877. Following World War I, after declaring its neutrality in 1914, Romania fought on the side of the Allied powers beginning in 1916.

On Aug 2019, in the Continental Cup Romania played Turkey.  Sivakumar Periyalwar only 21 years of age scored a scintillating century taking Romania to 226/6 and then they bowled out Turkey for 53.  Sivakumar Periyalwar is a right handed bat and right arm medium fast bowler.    
** the list at the start is the Nations whose players have scored a century in T20 Internationals.
