Security woes, incomplete infrastructure, dirty Games villages, overspending and corruption scandals... Even the Indians are finding all this hard to digest.

After-effects

    

 

 

 

 

 Even in the wildest of imaginations, one can’t justify the amount of money flowing in to this event. Certainly the overspending; the incomplete, broken over brid

ges; dirty Games villages; and the number of corruption scandals made the CWG one the great disasters for India. Only Hamilton (India beat this Canadian city to host the 2010 game) and terrorists – who even after the non-stop action of decades failed to make considerable damage to India – can laugh at this moment. Will anything happen after CWG? I don’t think so, after all the games government may announce that the CWG 2010 was an extraordinary event and proof of India’s ability to conduct multi-national sporting events – All is well!!! It’s curious to know, how many are considering the next Olympics in India?
