Commonwealth Games

We are no China. The Beijing Games announced China had arrived. The Commonwealth Games up till now tell us India definitely hasn’t.

These games instead of raising morale of the entire nation and giving us all something to be proud about, have turned the entire nation to feeling appalled and angry. The media’s role in focusing our attention only on the bad, shows us how irresponsible they are. Research shows that bad news sells faster and better than good news. And so everybody plays along.

I think its awesome to have great stadiums and building them in Delhi was no mean feat. But our bureaucracy’s is still struggling to come to terms with being a part of modern India, where everything happens at the speed of business.

    Quite true. But it has more dimensions as well. Media and bureaucracy may not be the only ones to be blamed.
