It was a day of nines.

For those keen about numbers and their combinations, Tuesday turned out to be an interesting day when the calendar showed the date as 9, the month as 9 and ending with the year which had yet another 9.

And when the clock reached 9 hours and the minutes and seconds too reached that number, it was all nines. And adding to the fun and excitement, the city theatres had an apt offering, the movie ‘9’ and its tagline said ‘Mission Begins 9-9-09’.
