WORDLESS WEDNESDAY:- Nothing wordless today lots of Words – Common Wealth games

Posted: September 22, 2010 in corruption, Politics, random, Rant, Shame

I am sure most of my article are RANTS on stuff , I was wanting to write these few line since last night when I entered my house and switched on the TELE for the news, The first news on a BBC1, and ITV1.. the headlines was Common Wealth games, along with the pictures of what had happened, Other channels are showing how dirty places are, the threat of Dengue fever.. The pictures are splashed all over

The bridge collapsed

The Village in which the Athletes were to stay… (with a picture of the model room SUPPOSED to be for ready)

The Stadiums

The interview with people who have been shifted and removed

All in all, it was shameful , what India has done has bring SHAME to our great country.. Will someone answer or be held accountable.. 3 years we had known about the games , work did not start till last year… How much or how long will we carry on living the shameless life that we are living…

I am glad the English athletes have pulled out, and the Scottish team has postponed leaving for India. I really wish these games get cancelled… Even if Delhi put up a great show the best show ever in the games Will it be WORTH it after all the Sleaze that has befallen OUR country.

Even if the games go on, what good will it be if the Athletes pull out, the ones whom people would have come to watch …

I have already cancelled my tickets to come, not worth spending so much money when anybody who is into sports here asks me , how much money will be enough for the politicians… I had no answer…

The Sports village is a embarrassment so much so that athletes interviewed from around the world are saying they don’t want to go and sleep in such accommodations.. Look at South Africa or any other 4th 5th 6th world country they would do a proper job.

Is there no limit to our shamelessness, My question to all who reading this ,

WHAT DO YOU FEEL ?

WHAT DO YOU THINK SHOULD HAPPEN ?

are you still wanting for the games to go on … The countries or the athletes who have pulled out of the even did they do the right thing… ?

WHY CANT WE FOR ONCE DO SOMETHING THE RIGHT WAY ?

All these officials, Can i please ask them HOW MUCH MONEY will be enough to stop them taking more,

HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH ?

SM sums it quiet nicely… I would also like all those people who have been telling me or emailing me about how I am looser-traitor , living in Uk, etc all the ones who are ready to give there lives for the country , what are they going to do about this.. are they still going to just say the same stuff they have been saying all along which is one line “I love my country ” .. also… How much more can we take

I was talking to my brother in Delhi a few hours ago, his words are that majority of the SANE people wish the games get cancelled, The educated people understand this They dont want it to happen, the Common man on the streets Dont want it.. So much money has been wasted… Yet again and the DELHI DARBAR has no answers.

SHOULD WE INDIANS BOYCOTT THE GAMES ?

  1. It's a shame. There are hardly a few days left for the games and this is how we have progressed. And add to bad infrastructure, security issues.

    it all comes down to values. hey premarital sex existed from kunti's times. you think orphanages sprung up only recently?you have seen nris who ask their parents to baby sit, i have also seen parents who tell, whatever the condition work abroad and send us the money and have seen them squandering it away. i am refering to the blue collar jobs which are 3-5 year contracts.and earlier the respect reserved for a boy's parents was not reserved for the girl's parents. (for eg, Baghban would have looked stupid if Amitabh had had 4 girls).But Yes I have seen values disappear. I blame it (probably wrongly) on the tv ads which say its ok to lie cheat or do anything immoral because the product is worth it. coupled with it, our values on piracy has corrupted away many stance.i think what gets me is the ok factor. many parents today would be more upset if their child failed than their child cheating in an exam.i am sick of CWG. millions can die of hunger but its ok. but a structure collapses and it brings shame to us. of course i am against corruption and feel sick when i read a negative cwg headline in cnn.com but there is a limit to how obsessed we are with our image. The Bharatiya I think cares not just for the image.cwg has become a shame game. but the rotting foodgrains are a bigger shame.

    oh no i pasted the earlier comment in wrong post!no i don't think we should boycott the games. its like saying i don't want to take care of an autistic child. it might be difficult and perhaps not desirable. but when we cancel or boycott we do more damage.better to grin and bear it and start punishing those responsible for the mess NOW instead of waiting after the games.

    You know, I am going to be the devil's advocate yet again!And, I feel that, if we are able to pull this off despite the mess, then it truly will be a miracle. I know, that the common has been suffering because of the preps, but isnt this common man going to use akll the facilities that are being created for the games themselves?The metro, the buses, the newer routes.. that make delhi much more travel savvy.India believes in "Atithi Devo Bhava" and as an Indian, today, I want that whoever comes here, sees and lives exactly the opposite of what the media is saying.The ones who should be thrashed, should be givcen a public trial but after the games. they should be left to the people to deal with.Delhi, has progressed leaps and bounds in the last couple of years, and the attitude of rest of the ntion towards this is so wrong. Like I said, very easy to blame, to crib, how many of us actually co-operate? Tell me, if it is a two way lane minus a divderr, why do we want to jump ahead..we don't believe in lane driving, we will jump red lights, wont respect the other persons right on the road and crib about the traffic jams.It is very easy to thrash the nation that you are living in, but you will not rvrn do the simplest of the thing that is asked of you- VOTE.It is this very educated class that refuses to vote and then cribs about the governmnet. the lower strat we know will vote to the person who gives em the blanket and the clothes.. but making an educated choice, that we have never done.The day, we run like a democracy, this will not happen. Just tweeting about it, blogging about it, won't help.. active participation.. as a citizen is required.. but you would not do it. Even if it is something as simple as going and voting.

    Sakshi :- 🙂 hey yeah it would be a miracle if the games work , but then seriously what good is that gonna do .. the damage is so severe already, The top athlets are not coming, Full stop. They are not that alone fails the whole idea of the games, THe question here is not if delhi has become Savvy or not , No qualms on that Good luck to all on that, BUt all this SAVVY at what cost is the issue… and please I have heard this ATHITHI DEVO BHAVA and sorry I dont agree to this at all, to me it means nothing, I have heard this before too, and I will disagree with you on this point, the ground reality is not opposite to what the media is saying, I am not sure about indian media but I trust the BBC or the CNN and the interviews they have had with the people who have been dislocated. Yeah the ones who are guilty but we know who they are, and we knew this ages ago, still NOTHING has happened and Nothing will happen… This article is not at all NATION thrashing this is the people who are running it and the people who do NOTHING about it…As long as i was there I voted each time, sometimes we got to accept the facts, and saying things will work is not going to make it all work.. So much money has been wasted that even if the games were a success it cant be profitable, Ask the common man, I can vouch that if you go and talk to 10 people Random on the road jsut walking, a few wont have a clue whats going on. Its not you or me or quiet a few who will read the article who will be effected .. its those people who are dislocated, no one is thinking of them.. WHAt good is this ATHITHI DEVO BHAVA when we cant even cater for out own citizens who are more important then any VISITOR or ATHITHI. How about spending all that money in places where these people who are homeless and go hungry provided food everyday… We want to please the athithi but what about US what About ME… I have more rights then atithi.. I know tweets-blog will hardly make a dent or nothing at all, but then i wrote this cause thats what i think and beleive in.. everyone has there own rules.. I know in my heart and I feel it in my heart that the Games will go ahead, and I am sure they will be successfull the question is WILL THEY BE… But I really do appreciate your concern and you being the advocate 🙂 he he he even if its the Devil's he he he , I dont mind it at all as such we all have our own interpretation.. Thank you so much… If i have said anything hurtful to you then I apologise …

    It is a dicey question to answer. As an Indian, I feel angry that my country's name is dragged in muck. And, I was not a part of the decision to spend 70K crores to host Commonwealth games. This is my money they are wasting. This is my image they are slurring. And Kalmadi and company along with the politicians need to pay for this.That said, I still feel that the Games must go on. Why? Because you cannot pull the plug on some international event like that. How does a new venue spring up overnight? The joke on India will be even bigger. Look at the larger picture. Who will trust India's credibility for anything?Go on a war footing and get the games done with. It's a shame that the best people would pull out, but hopefully it will spur us not to forget the insult after the games are over. Our rage has to be channelized to the right people. Make them pay, after the Games are done with.

    Yesterday, when I heard the news about some ballons they had brought as a showpiece for CWG collapsing, even I was going to add a post about it on my blog.. but you've said it right.. that showpiece costed somewhere around 50 crores. FIFTY CRORES!!! I mean, how many pappus in India can be fed and given a school admission with those 5o crores? I mean.. if the government has so much money to buy showpieces worth that much, where is the money going??? It pained me to hear that news item and I was thinking, Shame on the govt for giving lame reasons like the collapse is a small thing.. blah blah… it is a disaster.. God knows whyyy India took up the baton of CWG. And the inflation is ONLY because a lot of people's hard-earned money is being wasted into a disaster called CWG. Aur phir to add insult to the injury, countries declaring that they are withdrawing from the event!!And more insult to the injury: Australian media infiltrated CWG premises with terror material.. NO ONE came to know about it.. What else can be said??? I don't think I'll write a post on it.. Tax bharne se acha hai, woh tax amount agar hum kisi NGO ya phir social organisation ko de denge, toh atleast we KNOW it is being used for someone's welfare!!

    It is such a huge huge shame! I cannot understand how the OC managed to create such a shambles. I mean, it takes talent to be able to under-perform at this level. When you know that the whole world's eyes are on you, wouldn't you go out of the way to ensure that it is a success? And the thing is we have spent more than enough to make it a great success. We won the bid 7 years ag0 – 7 years is a long time. We should have known that leaving things to the last minute is not done. When I hear people blaming the rain, I feel like shaking them and asking, 'Hello? Did you not know that we have a monsoon season in India?' Why on earth was everything left to the very last minute? And the hygiene standards – it is ridiculous that that Bhanot guy tried to justify it by saying that Indian standards and western standards are different! Please! All this just makes me wish that they would just call it off, or we would just throw good money after bad and still make a mess of things 😦 And I so hope that all these guys get penalized – but then why do I feel strongly that nothing is going to happen to them ?

And now I guess we're too deep in this muck, there's no getting out. All that can be done is, get our act together (hope for a miracle) and try our best to pull it off. Of course, the guilty should be brought to book immediately and stern action taken against them that will serve as a warning for all the corrupt practitioners.

    i disagree on the evil for good in principle at least. look at the maoist movement. some might be in it for justice of downtrodden. thousands of children can go hungry and die due to system of state but the moment they take to violence, they have become just terrorists.its a vicious cycle because many times those we fight against become part of our system. for eg a paedophile becoming a clergy or a teacher. (not exact equivalent but i think u would get the metaphor)i agree on the garam loha, for eg so much was said on ipl and modi but what has happened to modi? nothing.i don't think kalmadi is the main and only villain. both the govts were involved. it was the attitude that somehow we will manage. but they underestimated how bad we have become in terms of integrity.for kalmadi and the other corrupts the punishment isn't prison but the life of an ordinary Indian for a week. this is not the first time it happened. when rain interupts a cricket match in India, look how Chennai and Delhi stadiums deal with it.

    Sports are a Ray of hope and a great opportunity to spread good messages of hope and improvementTom freedom in Africa (during the epic soccer game) and so on and so forth the examples are numerous – india has many afflictions no doubt and it's not about being patriotic but we collectively are a world community who should be watching out for the interests of the common good – when the indians see the collective spirits of the world community they will spiritually improve towards wanting to do a better job mect time Nd ne better hosts that child who has no exposure or an opportunity to see what we fortunate few have, gets a glimps of what th world community is – for that child I say we all who go there should go – cause that child's world is going to be totally altered to a better life -so I say we don't boycott the games – we should accept that india is what it is – and shall probably continue to be the same – athletes and fans are a unique breed who understand thias power they have so let's not be worried about our image but think of the most.
