Commonwealth GamesINDIA is going to host 19th Commonwealth Games(CWG). The Games are scheduled to be held in Delhi, between 3 October and 14 October 2010. I am not going to discus here that we are ready to manage this event or not, i want to simply discuss with my fellow members that INDIA is going to host a big event and whole world will be watching this.
We all know that CWG is a multinational, multi-sport event. CWG is 3ed largest multi-sport event in the world. The event was first held in 1930 under the title of the British Empire Games. The event was renamed in 1954 as 'British Empire and' Commonwealth Games and in 1970 as 'British Commonwealth Games'. It's current title was given in 1978.
Currently there are 54 members of the Commonwealth of Nations, and 71 teams participate in the Games. The most recent games were at Melbourne, Australia in 2006, and now we are going to host the next edition. There were two principal bids for the 2010 Commonwealth Games one from Delhi, India and other from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. We won the bid, and now we have to host the game so that we can show the world that we won that bid because we are capable of hosting such events, we have done this in past(Asian Games, Afro-Asian Games) and we can do this again.
Whatever done can't be changed, but still we have some time left in which we can make this event a success. So i invite the views of the fellow members about what we can do now to make this event a success? What should Indian think tank do? And how a common man can help?
