TEc - "Running into the sand" - Commonwealth Games overshadowed by traditional Indian woes?
By the looks of it the omens are that the Commonwealth Games may be a failure or a relative success.
Whatever - and I can only hope all will fall in place by October - the government, India's business community as well as concerned citizens should raise every right question carefully tracking every right answer to full effect.
Indians cannot or should not continually provide self-satisfying answers to endemic problems that never get addressed.
As the country grows richer with increased levels of economic maturity so must social expectation and accountability from top down.
There's of course a great deal at stake when a country puts up a grand sporting event, be it international prestige or more homely the actual ability to do it and do it right.
I believe the latter is India's biggest challenge as the case is yet to be made whether or not the country delivers on schedule, on quality, on organization and on budget.
On graft, price distortion, last minute overpricing, foot-dragging, technical and assembly flaws - does it really make any difference commenting?
