Just what's going on? With hardly ten days left we are still talking of preparation! India boasts of her hospitality, but athletes are withdrawing day after day, teams are delaying arrivals and countries are issuing advisories. Honorable Prime Minister has intervened now and the chief of thieves has been sidelined. But why now? That should have happened long long back.
Huge wastage of taxpayers' money in a country of poverty stricken illiterate millions and with inflation raging at 15%+ still. Okay, it was decided to waste the money in the spirit of sports and goodwill. But after deciding to waste it why no efforts were taken to ensure results! And on the top of it, suspense drama of the Ayodha Mandir-Masjid verdict to be delivered on September 24 is extended for one more week giving ample opportunities to the media to hype it to Himalayan heights and others to articulate speculate manipulate and gesticulate even more!
What a country! What a shame!
Time is running out, India! Make amends and restore at least some of the horribly lost pride!
