Ja paros na baba ta korte jas ken. India te dekhi obosta BD er chaite kharap. They are arranging Ind vs Aus during Commonwealth games too. What a mess!
not a question of ability, delhi has hosted asiads and similar sized games before without any problem. this time it was the bunch of people given charge.
when suresh kalmadi (whose name fittingly enough, can be re-arranged to 'sir u made lakhs' ) was given the responsibility everyone knew what would happen. still they have managed to salvage some of it from his grimy hands.

many athletes are fine with the arrangements.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-11415577

to get an idea of their corruption
Quote:
It took seven years and Rs. 5 crore for a company to build a Foot Over Bridge (FOB) near the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, which then collapsed. The Indian Army, which was called in to salvage the Delhi's pride and build a temporary FOB, has done the same job in four days flat and at a fraction of the original cost.
btw, do keep in mind that some western media(and athletes) would go overboard in trying to show those dirty third worlders in a bad light. especially so from australia since they lost the bid to delhi
so don't believe everything they say. much is true but much is just opportunistic garbage. some of the 'shocking' pictures above are from before the rooms were given a last scrub and handed over to the foreign teams. that is just cheap from the contingents.
team wales had some pics of their rooms on their FB page. it doesn't look half bad IMO.


case in point, the 'security breach' exposed by australia's channel 7


the sports and transport infra is quite decent btw, I hope it is kept in good shape after the games are over and not allowed to decay like what happened after the asiad.
the delhi metro is quite advanced and compares favourably with most metros around the world (including the one we have in kolkata though that might change when the second line starts working ) and more importantly is quite cheap. the airport has had a new terminal that is one of the largest in asia and is fairly impressive.

Any chance of wining any medals for us this time ??

for all the madness before the games started, I'm mostly satisfied with the ceremony and I think the rest of the games would go fine as well. we are after all living proof of the cliche that there is order in chaos !
the aerostat idea was genius !

a few shots from it.
















first part of the opening ceremony. the uploader has rest of it in his profile.


watch from 6:00 onwards especially the 7 yr old kid at the end. he plays the tabla superbly and even shakes his head like zakir hussain !

my favourite segment was swagatam, the children were a nice touch. 4:35 onwards here

and continued into the first part of


since people were comparing with china, I would say that we are quite a bit behind in scale and moolah spent but the common man in India still has pride of place in a glitzy event like this. unlike in china where thousands were thrown out of beijing and hundreds of small shops were closed down as not being impressive enough. I felt the 2008 event also had a bit of "I'm going to conquer you and trample you underfoot, so bow to me" intimidation thing going on which wasn't the case here. there was no overt patriotism on display and thankfully no such arrogance.
I'm also happy with the fact that there has been no effort to put an artifical gloss on proceedings. this is India, the good with the bad, warts and all, WYSIWYG all the way.

the last segment was journey of India and it probably highlights the difference in approach I've written above. participants like these would have been unthinkable in beijing 2008.



-------------------------
the pak contingent received a big cheer from the crowd but unfortunately their leaders, including the chef de mission were busy fighting on camera on who would carry the flag. you can find that in the video's I posted as well. 4th or 5th one.

first medal for BD !

Quote:
England's James Huckle and Kenny Parr (1174) won the silver medal while Bangladesh's Abdullah Hel Baki and Md. Asif Hussain Khan (1173) had to be content with bronze. Both teams, however, were far behind the Indian duo of Bindra and Gagan.
medal's tally so far

Hopefully Asif gets a gold for us. We wasted so much money on him after his first commonwealth success yet he is unable to bring one more gold for us. He is Ashraful of our Shooting!

Dont forget the beat up he received which ruined his career.
We are lucky that he is still shooting medals.

Best of luck to him.
Inshallah he's gonna bag us a gold.

asif came 9th in the 10m rifles singles event.
http://results.cwgdelhi2010.org/en/C...List/SHM101900

interestingly olympic gold medalist abhinav bindra lost the gold in his strong event (10 m air rifle) to narang, who broke his own world record in the process.

btw, we should look to introduce kabadi in CWG, if lawn bowling can be an event, kabadi can surely be.

Asif and Ashraful are synonyms. They shine only on their Eid days !

As I said, Asif isn't the one we can rely! Rabz vai, Asif was inconsistent even before the beating. I'm actually looking for what Ratna can do. She is a good shooter and much more consistent in her scoring.
