    As the world comes together to celebrate sochi Olympics,one country that will remain conspicuous by it's absence is India.So brutally corrupt is the country that it's banned from participating in international sporting events.India's very presence in Olympics has no meaning as it barely wins anything.

    Shamelessly for a country whose population is larger than the combined population of entire Europe and North America and having a continental size youth force,it's medals tally is even lower than many unheard African countries.

    This speaks volumes on the state of affairs of the country.The brute inefficiency is not just limited to sporting field alone but transcends into every other field,be it healthcare or education or economy.The country spectacularly fails to achieve anything despite having resources to do so.

    For example the millennium development goals laid out in the 1990's to achieve a particular set of goals by 2015.That was not hard to achieve considering India's good economic progress but that financial well being failed to bring tangible improvements in social well being.While China and many countries have achieved the goals almost a decade ahead of time,India is likely to fail by wide margin.

    Though I do not subscribe to the view that India is the most inefficient country, I would blame the shortfalls on the feudal structure/mindset of Indian society.

    One good excuse for every failure.

    to the OP:

    thing that matters the most is economy. per capita. doing good in olympics is hardly on the mind of a common Indian. let's fix our economy first, we are at the bottom with african nations in quality of life, so who cares about how we do in sports?

    also, people here at dfi seem to really love spending large amount of money on foreign weapon equipment, I don't get what is pride in buying a russian 5th gen fighter or aircraft carrier or whatever.

    I'd say let's cap our defence budget at present level - let's not increase it any further; ban import of foreign weapons and produce everything locally even if its of inferior quality; and increase spending in education exorbitantly, let's build CBSE standard schools in all our villages. within 20-30 years our villagers or poor folks would be educated enough to take care of themselves and learnt enough to work in factories.

    India can be proud of being slightly better than Nigeria, Somalia, Nepal, Bangladesh (debatable), Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, etc... :TSK:

    Unfortunately it is.Lets ignore the Olympics.Look at economics.India's economy is at 1.7 trillion $ is actually lower than 2nd tier european country like Italy with a population of merely 60 million or even tiny Canada with just 34 million people.

    That means the overwhelming majority of the people in this country contribute nothing to economy.

    The country is unable to generate wealth to spend on it's people because the lethargic govt which is in a state of comatose doesn't spend a dime on anything be it healthcare,education or infrastructure and because of this neglect the condition of the country is in shoddy state and consequently very few are willing to trade and invest in the country and therefore the country remains in a condemned state of poverty.

    Actually this is the first time in decades that India has actually run out of money to spend on even military.India has to wait another fiscal term to finalize the rafale deal.Last night i read in papers that India has asked for a 1 billion euro loan from Germany.

    Given the kind of society India has which has made the entire country renowned world over, i don't think so it's worth spending even a penny on things like aircraft carrier and nuke subs.

    Indian sportsperson were forced to come to Sochi under Olympic flag but not the Indian flag and the reason for the suspension of IOA was more related to the acceptance of Olympic charter and involvement of Olympic committee in the election process in IOA. All this was more about autonomy and not being dictated by Olympic committee. IOA did elections in December 2012 but IOC suspended IOA before elections in the name of Government interference. IOA has done elections after the Sochi ceremony because IOC was unfair to IOA.

    Regarding the Germany $1 billion loan that loan would be invested in renewable energy and the total investment is around Rs.40,000 crore ($7.5 billion) with an aim to create 30,000 MW of additional capacity in renewable energy sector during the 12th Plan period (2012-17). This German loan would let german companies to supply german equipment and technology.

    what a shoddy argument! before presenting any counter arguments i need to know why are some defending the indefensible ?

    In the entire world IOC can only be unfair to India,isn't it?

    IOA was suspended because all the important positions was occupied by politicians which is against the IOC rules.The politicians occupy the positions at sporting bodies because of reasons known to all.These fools rather choose to remain suspended rather than adhere to the international rules and only accepted the demands after coming under immense pressure from all quarters

    You cannot have one set of rules for the whole world and another just for India.IOC is not ICC.

    You have given a link of that 10 billion $ aid to Europe.This is a 2 year old news when India was financially sound.The current situation of India has gone from bad to worse with economy stated to grow below 5% even this year.

    Besides do you think that a union of 27 richest states with one of the largest financial reserves in the planet is any dependent on aid of an impoverished country?

    There is no shoddy argument in here. The reason for Indian Sportsperson to go to Sochi under Olympic flag was due to the unfair attitude of the Olympic committee and it was more linked for some more autonomy and the whole issue was for changes in the qualifying rules. In next Olympics we will see the participation of more Indian sportsperson.

    N Ramachandran set to be elected as IOA president : India: Headlines Today




    In 2012, India was the European Union’s (EU’s) eighth largest trading partner. During the period 2003–2012, Indian companies invested some €43 billion (US$ 59.13 billion) across the continent and created three times more jobs than Chinese investments, according to a report by the Europe India Chamber of Commerce (EICC). The biggest chunk of the investment viz. €29 billion (US$ 39.87 billion) went into M&A of 411 companies, while Greenfield investments amounted to €14 billion (US$ 19.24 billion) for a total of 511 projects. The United Kingdom (UK) was the major beneficiary, attracting 47 per cent of India’s Greenfield investments in Europe and 63 per cent of new jobs. Other recipient countries included Germany, Netherlands, France, Belgium and Italy which together accounted for 41 per cent of investments and 25 per cent of jobs created.

    GoI do let Indian companies for foreign investment in Eu countries but the sad thing is this that these companies doesn't let Indian citizens to even work in these companies by giving many invalid excuses.

    Governments have different ways to invest and improve relations and it is done in shape of loans or aid or direct investment but this doesn't means that anyone can insult any country. India is creating wealth and even doing foreign investments which is helping not only Indians but even other countries and regarding poverty within India , GoI is working under mechanism to uplift Indians and provide basic needs but that is another subject .

    I don't know why you said like this but this Olympic problem is beyond internal Indian politics.

    Many countries are asking for reforms and changes in Olympic laws and even during the Beijing Olympics , some were for the elimination of nationality rule against the Rule 41 of Olympic Charter which says that all athletes must hold citizenship in the country for which they compete and now such athletes seems can take part under Olympic flag and those medals will be not added in that country medal list but under Olympic list.

    Olympics rules are laid on the western standards and because of this majority of the athletes cant compete from second and third world countries.

    It is all about dominating the arena. Call it Hippocratic or twisting of laws, one has to deal with these kind of situations situations while trying to ascend and become a force to recon in Olympic arena.

    Here its the nations from second and third world countries which wants changes in the Olympic qualifying rules so that they can send bigger teams in competitions which would even let them to invest more money on sports. In events like Asian games/Afro-Asian games more athletes are able to take part from second and third world countries. We do know that there is very little help from governments but in Western countries athletes do get direct support and help from governments.

    The number of athletes coming from a nation depends on Olympic qualifiers.

    In western countries sport is a considered as a part and parcel of their culture and also Govts support the athletes by giving them infra. etc..etc...

    In India also Athletes are encouraged well these days.

    An olympic medalist is getting more money and support from GOI than an athlete with similar kind of medal in western country.

    India needs world class coaches to develop athletes as well.

    Indian Olympic Association did asked for slight changes in qualifying rules so that more athletes can compete and we all do know that in games without the government funding athletes be it from any nation will have problem in competing in any events as its the governments which pays the expenses and all the others requirements of the athletes.

    Here we are again coming back to the same question because of which Indian Olympic Association was suspended. When everything is done from Government expenses then why International Olympic Committee was having objection with the appointment of President of Indian Olympic Association and rejected the elections and unfairly suspended India because of which Indian Sportsperson have to go without the Indian flag in Sochi and here instead of understanding the situation , why ours Indian members are playing vote bank politics and making it as fault of the Government. When nation comes first then such type of tactics should not be used and this really hurts me a lot.
