Sports ministry created and share the money from the federations which not exists in International sports.Any one can make Federation wether itis of Kanchey, Guli Danda, stapoo, ludo,snake and ladder sorry for Carrom it is already made or any home made game you know.The upcoming federations are Video/Computer Games.Many media personalties are also involved with them.Its a pure game of WINE,WOMEN,WEALTH. is really Maharashtiyan specially PUNE/Mumbians have experience to get jobs in CWG Delhi where others can work at the half the cost and better then a dozen of those. The rest are the relatives of the politicians and Federations members.Is really there is need of so much staff.
IF really Govt wants then check the expenditures of YCWG Pune of Transpotation,Hotels,Accredition Cards which were not more then a normal peace of paper as there were no scanning machines to check accredition cards.Ticketing,kit etc.
Most of the tenders of CWG Delhi are given to the Agencies which are of the heads of Sports Federations or of their relatives.
Transperacy what transperancy Sports Ministry is Partner and its a dispute of Money.

However there is big gap between reality and Bollywood.”- Posted by Willy Vee—I do not think the West is pressing India to match China given the fact that China managed Olymics like no one else did before and the London must be under pressure to match the Chinese. Is that not understandable? The gap is due to the Indian democracy vs Chinese communism which translates into efficiency.But nothing at all will explain poor management of the games.

If the Indian Olympic Association and the Govt. are really doing something, its neither sufficient nor satisfactory. Besides it is too late now. The Govt. and IOA have condemned India to international ridicule by their lethargy and corruption.

World is watching us. However, there is no need to panic, nobody is fool to kick start the games unless everything is complete.

Every International Sports committee expects adequate facilities and hospitality by the people hosting the events. Indians should not feel or think of insecurity. Any nation or peoples must simply galvanize their population & focus on the tasks that need to be completed. Many other people have hosted major sporting events: Russians, Japanese, Germans, Brits,… the list goes on. The Chinese were very determined to show off to the world. They have self-confidence and are looking towards the future. Btw some of the English used in the comments by folks is absolutely terrible.

What about the other 1250000000000 people. Not all speak the same language. Thanks to India’s diversity, we would need 100s of leaders to influence their respective followers (citizens)What I think is…we Indians have always looked upon someone to administer us…manage /govern us. we have never, ever learnt to act ourselves(be responsible).We are like buffaloes, we need someone to show the way.In other words, most of us are followers rather than leaders.There is no denying of the fact that India has a great history of Leaders, BUT that era is long gone.All the great leaders are dead .The people or citizens who have the potential of a LEADER will never get the opportunity or the medium to become one. Thanks to corruption, beauracracy, Red Tapism etc.Another solution, I love the most( and I am sure no one would like) is to invite Germans to our country and give them all the power and freedom to change us.Govern us. No interference from the Govt. They should be allowed to do whatever they want. Hard to imagine for some..I know…but the quickest solution for someone interested in quick and great results.So, you see all the problems are interconnected. So, its no wonder to imagine that the Commonwealth Games would be a disaster .

Educated people should be setting examples. But if educated people are setting bad examples then what to do?Making laws and penalizing people for littering etc… is going to create few more departments in the government, increase taxes, increase corruption etc… Yes, Hawaldars will be able to make more pocket money.Installing bins is a good idea. Atleast it gives people an option. An option to litter the waste or dispose it.P.S: It better be concrete dustbins.
