Inspite of all the pre-game chaos the CWG has been done more than reasonably well.The ordinary citizens of India were under severe stress due to the hyped negative local media publicity to spoil our own country's image.Foreign medias too were competing to kill the glamour of the game since they're obviously jealous of India's growing ecomonic power.Racism and racistic thoughts roots from jealosy. Since it's a multi-multicrore business, naturally some 'middle men'/'kick backs' would h be involved just like any other business whether it's in India or abroad.Only thing is that whether it has been judiciously tackled to minimum without compromising quality of the materials nor the country's best interest.Most of the Indian politicians which represent the people are genetically corrupt,and man is a social animal(Karl Marx is 100% right!!).If people/society in general are corrupt no body's bothered about stealing. This 'minor' issue will continue.The only concern is whether Kamadi &team has gulped in multi crores(few lakhs is just ignorable in our current corrupt society!) Let's hope that Indian society will be able to beat the deadly evils of corruption,poverty and iliteracy in the coming years at the earliest.
Ever since News of investigation by multiple agencies against kalmadi and his team has come,Sheila has been issuing statements trying to absolve herself from the corruption charges and trying to distance herself from Kalmadi and his team.Why Sheila is being so proactive?Is it the case of Chhor Ke Daadhi Mein Tinka?
As expected, all others are trying to hid under the bed now. The investigation should not look at mere embeszzling of funds but also sheer incompetence displayed by Sheila Dixit, Jaipal Reddy and others. Sheila comes across as an excuse oriented lady who can never meet her deadlines but quick to blame others. Jaipal Reddy is a mere all weather politician nothing more. Sheila bore accountability for the civic works inside the CWG premises with a def deadline. Why did she keep slipping on such deadines and with shoddy workmanship.
In Kannada language Kalmadi means a thief. Kalmadi's parents are from Udipi, Karnataka. This fellow has certainly lived up to his name. In other countries where corruption is punished he would be behind bars till death.

The word in Kannada is kalla for thief, and this stupid disrespect for the last name of Mr. Suresh Kalmadi is ridiculous. Being a Kannadiga, and even though Mr. Kalmadi has a base in Pune, makes me to support him!
Mr Kalmadi being at the helm of IOA for years may have been a mixed blessing. But given the effort and the unweildy nature of the task undertaken, the competence at work need not be underestimated. Let us not forget that he has given his lifetime for Indian sports, and his wealth of experience and those of others can be still tapped to lay proper foundation for future success.
Per true sporting spirit, let our criticism be just and our appreciation for efforts made be gracious.
when the game has been successfully conducted , the only point left is that there was corruption. The media was biased because it did not get broadcasting rights. But every player is now telling on channels that they were vigourously supported by the Governmentin last two years. Kalmadi may be hanged but to criticize investigations even before these are held is clearly prejudicial. Also the amount spent on games is also not clear. Let the report come. The first part of downsizing immage of India by media is deplorable.Media is not fair in evaluation. Narandra dashora
