Spare a thought about Sunday

WE COME across many new and novel innovations these days all over the world, which enable mankind to improve lifestyle. But here is an innovation that has puzzled me as to how it can be of any help.

WE COME across many new and novel innovations these days all over the world, which enable mankind to improve lifestyle. But here is an innovation that has puzzled me as to how it can be of any help.

About three four years back in January, I had discovered that a diary presented to me by a friend had no mention of the 52 Sundays in a year.

I asked myself, if I come across any memorable or unusual event on a Sunday, should I not keep record of the same. Are accidents totally banned on these 52 Sundays?

Three or four years have passed since then and in this time I have seen many new diaries every year. Somehow, printers of all these diaries seem to be guided by this foolish idea that since Sundays are not working days, no important event worth recording can happen on those days.

Pray what do I do, if my granddaughter refuses to heed to diary makers and goes ahead and delivers her baby on a Sunday?
How and where do I record this most memorable event of becoming a great-grandfather?
