I don't want to be harsh but if a country half-arsedly organizes an event that is much smaller than the olympics, I don't see how that's going to work. I think that India should stop taking so many things on their plate, first solve problems before creating more problems whether or not it is in the form of challenges like organizing the CWG. I wouldn't let a company repair my floor if I'd know they regularly set ablaze houses in error.

ya me too feels the same, i watched a short video clip on a news channel, the way to the CWG stadium road was covered with huge flux board on both sides,it was welcome boards.but it was not kept to welcome the players instead indian government used the huge boards to hide the big area of slums in delhi behid the board. it was very pathetic for me to watch it.

What is the use of such pomp and show when most of the people in the country are reeling under high cost of living, under supper power cuts. There ought to be a greater emphasis towards overall growth and not growth in just one direction and only one state that is Delhi. India should first tackle the menace of terrorism more than anything else.

I think India has done a great job in CWG. All the preparations before launching of CWG were really bad and seemed to be having no end. But responses from international players and the launching with a theme song of world renowned singer AR Rahman paved a way for India. Also I think media has reported very bad about CWG preparations before its launching. But the Games were held with international facilities and features succesfully.

oh you say YES! do you how many players refused to play in india due to the bad practise condition and staying condition? and many played here avoiding these problems, because everyone wanted to play for their nation. are you aware of the kalmadi issue? the brand ambassador of CWG saina nehwal herself, first expressed her negative comments on the conditions that india provided for the games(later regretted and changed her words due to some influences) so how can you say that India can host the olympics?

Hello venkit, After watching the opening and closing ceremony of CWG in TV I felt that India successfully conducted the games. However, when I came to know about the other details through newspapers I really felt bad. Now the politicians started to blame each other without thinking the results of the same. Common people in Delhi suffered a lot during the games period. There was much traffic blocks in road, the prices of vegetables shoot up as there was no vehicles coming due the restrictions. The only advantage is the roads become good, I don’t know for how long but I am happy to see that currently there is no pit in roads.

in my opinion India did not host the commonwealth games successfully. even though there was no more accidents after the breaking down of the bridge, we cannot be surer about this. Till the Indian ministers who are all money loving ones do not change their concept India should not host the Olympic games. why should we host it and make it a disaster. many people's life are based upon it.

India hosted successfully yes but now shoud host olympics a big no. It can't be justified that the budget of 1000 cr reaches 70 times more. If 10% this money spent after players to motivate them we could have got more medals. I am not against promoting the sports but whose wealth was created in the CWG is known to everyone.

Hi, There were lots of problems in the beginning of the COMMON WEALTH GAMES.Most of the damages held during the opening of the COMMON WEALTH GAMES.Some swimmers were affected with some diseases due to bad quality of water.The buildings and score boards used to crash down and it was a great risk for other sports persons to take Part in the COMMON WEALTH GAMES.This was the reason for some countries opting out from the COMMON WEALTH GAMES.There were lots of corruptions and bribes so next time India won't get a chance to host Olympics during 2020.Let's hope for it .
