Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have known by now that the capital city of New Delhi will be hosting the 19th Commonwealth Games in another 16 days. The games will start off with an Opening Cermony on the 3rd of October 2010 and run till the 14th of October 2010. The 12 day extravaganza has gone through a lot of controversies about venues not being prepared on time, corruption in the organisation and stuff.
At the end of the day, Kalmadi and his band of merry men still reign. He is determined to put up a good show fully knowing that the whole country is looking to pin him down on a single mistake of his. Whether all the spending has been worth it or if the organising comittee and the people involved in the same have been corrupt is for time to tell and for the investigative departments to find out.
Meanwhile, lets keep our differences aside and put up a positive cheerful face for the world to see. With just 16 days to go for the games to happen, i plan to have a roundup of the venues and the changes the games have brought to New Delhi.
First of all, the games village which had a soft opening yesterday and going by the reivews of the people who have seen it, its mighty impressive. Our crappy media will for sure find some negative points to ham about, but lets look at the brigther side of life.
