    CWG Beauties: One Year Later

    They were supposed to be the pride of India. They were supposed to boost sporting culture in India. All that these used Commonwealth Games venues and properties do now is make Delhi’s landscape ugly.

    Like festoons at a carnival, they lent beauty to the Capital during the Commonwealth Games that kicked off on October 3 last year. One year later, the beauty spots have turned into ugly pockmarks.

    But 2/3rd intelligent and intellectual voters don't vote to Congress. But Problem is that these kind of people are less and minority. :frusty:

    This time (2013), I am very much hopeful that Congress will lose Delhi election very badly.

    Intelligent Delhiites can't look beyond a few flyovers and the fuel subsidy.

    Delhilites do not deserve these kinda infra. I would be furious if they bid for hosting Olympics, someother city should get next chance.

    Our country does not need to host such extravaganzas that last for a fortnight. Afterall why do you think politicians are so enthusiastic to host oylmpics?. Because once again they can make a lot of money and after the games are over everybody would forget the infrastructure.

    Well if it were handled well it could have at least returned the investment if not profits, the infra would have been an added bonus.

    What kind of returns? There are so many better avenues for investment. Such grand games in a country like ours is just tamasha. Even before the Games were nearing there were a lot of voices foretelling all that we know now, but no one listened.

    I was talking of an ideal scenario, in hindsight yes we can say it was a disaster but still it did give us experience and it did expose the rot within the OC.
    That don't kill you, only makes you stronger.
    I say go for the Olympics.

    Delhi is good but politicians are corrupt.

    It's not about city but nexus of Kalmadi, Shiela Dixit and others. :frusty:
    By the way, Kalmadi is from Pune and if CWG happened in Mumbai/Pune, It would have been same story most likely. :pound:
