The Indian Angle: Tendulkar keeps ego at bay to scrape one of his ugliest innings

Q. Why is it, if you book a one-week flight, the fare is a certain amount; if you book the same departure date but for two weeks' duration, the price goes up £20 or £30; if you book again the same departure date but for three weeks, the price increases by almost £100?
