    Media must project 'positive image' of Commonwealth Games: A R Rahman

    New Delhi: As the country's bigest sporting extravagenza is around the corner, India's music maestro A R Rahman has asked the media to project the positive image of the upcoming Commonwealth Games in October.

    The Oscar winning composer, whose song 'Swagatham' has been selected as the theme song for the event, said that he was pained by the negative publicity for the mega sporting event.

    Addressing a press conference alongwith the Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi, Rahman appealed to the media to present a positive image of the Games.

    'It is my humble request to you (media) to present a positive image of the Games to the international community,' said Rahman.

    Knowing the importance of the big event, Rahman said 'Hundreds of people are working day and night for making the Games successful. People across the world are asking if India will be able to hold them successfully... so kindly bring a positive image to the Games'.

    During the PC, OC chief Kalmadi said 'With 30 days to go for the opening of the Games village, we are confident of a great Games'.

    CWG is the biggest sporting event being organised by India since the 1982 Asiad Games But it has been hit by the corruption allegations and delay in preparations.
