Yesterday in the Economic Times – a headline which made me laugh:

NRS 2005: ToI advances to No 9

reminded me of headlines when we were growing up – Indian Wrestler comes 35th – and the story would run — The Indian Wrestler (or rower or shooter) excelled their own record and finished 35th out of a field of 37 in the Olympics.

On closer checking we would realise that Swaziland was 37th and Nepal was 36th!
