    it is quite sad indeed.
    And this is indeed what forums should be used for: to foster understanding, rather than create divisiveness! Kudos to you, Kwun!

    Shame on you ....... wakakakaka. You really need to experience India then, Georgie and limsy too.

    India is a decent place as long as you are able to adapt to it.

    But not the traffic, of course. That would remain a nightmare for quite a long while yet.

They are not working - no matter how hard the cameramen tried making it look that way. The photos where you actually see kids working are not from CWG places. I doubt if they are from Delhi itself. There are loads of cases of children working in construction industry and other, but no one would dare to do that in Delhi. Police is strict, media is stricter.
    There is lot of mismanagement and negative publicity about these games. But I hate to see this being dragged to such level by some media. Just because one event could not be arranged in a proper manner does not mean everything related to that country is poor and a-la 18th century. Actually such news and talks remind me how much prejudice and narrow-minded people could be while discussing alien culture. But believe me, even if you show me photos, I will not think every Chinese practice Kung Fu and eat only noodles and rides bicycle.
    thank you for sharing those infos, vpsingh! as i know you live there and actually seen what's going on, personally, i could take your comments as the reality. I have the same feeling also abt the report.

    Wasn't much of a challenge, travelling to Paris ..... except the travelling time from Kuala Lumpur.

    But exposing yourself to India will make a man out of you .... But hey, we are moving out of topic.

    The Australia Olympic Committee President could have been more tactful when talking to the press. Besides, he never had first hand experience of the issues in place, since he didn't travel with the advance party to Delhi. There may have been some stereotyping in his statement, due to cultural differences.

    Similarly, the statement from the general-secretary of the Organizing Committee about his acceptable hygiene standards being different from the visitors was downright insulting to his nation.

    Sure Indian decision-makers moved slowly like a glacier blocked by a mountain, but now they have been exposed to flaming heat and will come the wiser from it.

    I believe that India could organise the game well. At the moment they are doing their level best with whatever resources they have and they did make all the visitors and participant feel welcomeand at home. I believe the game will be a success. Bravo India

    I've working for an India MNC (owner is one of the richest men in World/Asia) almost 2yrs and my job requires to communicate with mid-high management on daily basis. So I know their office culture very well. On top of that, I'm a SAI devotee, and into Hinduism (goddes and deities). My parents have been to India for pilgrimage so they share all the stories about India with me...

    I should not say ill things about India, but I think in terms of capability and efficiency, they are still behind Singapore and HK.

    Sorry... off topic... Let's pray for India's success in the coming CWG 2010.... BOLEH...!!!

    Some team already start training and practice on court.
    The badminton venue looks ready and it's HUGE though. So many spaces between those courts.

    After hearing all the horror 'tummy' stories, better to bring your own water there. Use the bottled water to brush teeth as well. Always bring some pills for emergency. I've been there. Good luck!

    There are bound to be some issues with the food for the westerners.
