RE – That Proposed Sale of the 2012 Olympic Stadium:

That Display of intention by Tottenham Hotspurs is a huge waste of public funds and arrogant display of wealth. Let Tottenham go to another place to build anew and not insult the whole nation by pulling down the newly built and newly used Olympic Stadium soon after the Fiesta. Doing so is simply arrogant, wasteful, ridiculous and high-handed insult to the nation and the sporting world!

PHOTO FINISH OF A START! :The 19th Commonwealth Games

At long last, the 19th Commonwealth Games has kicked off amidst colourful celebration. It is like a ‘photo finish’ of a start! Let us hope for the possible best in the prevailing circumstances. Things are now looking much better , judging by the positive reports flowing around daily. What a narrow escape it is! It is a Games Fiesta that might have failed! HRH, Prince Charles, representing Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II(Head of the Commonwealth), declared the Games open at a colourful ceremony, with 71 participating countries. It is a pity that many star athletes had to pull out of the games for safety reasons. However, it is good that the games has come to stay. I do hope that the Fiesta would provoke the participants to give of their best and produce new records, the absence of stars notwithstanding. It is still a window of opportunities. One hopes India would be forgiven. The sporting facilities are reported as good and much has been spent to host the Games. May records fall; friendships deepen and expand; economy boosted; and the future of the Games be enhanced. Let the administrative body of the Games be more alert next time and always, by monitoring all future hosts to avert future embarrassment, please. I am sure Scotland is watching, learning and eager. BBC News also commented stating: ….”Games officials and thousands of people were working around the clock to ensure that the village was habitable and that the competition could start on time.” BBC News – Commonwealth Games opens in Delhi with security tight
