A day in the Commonwealth fiasco

I feel very ashamed of the way things have turned out with the CWG. I can stand up and blame many politicians and bureaucrats for it, but I really don’t want to do what these news channels have already overdone. Yesterday, I tracked the turn of events in the CWG fiasco. Exams start in my college today, and as usual, all I did yesterday was browse one of my favourite news source- The Hindu.

The morning started with a news titled “CWG may be called off: New Zealand“, the day passed with one more news “Games Village filthy, uninhabitable: Hooper“. Few hours later Hindu updated their front page again with “Cleanliness of CWG village a matter of perception: OC“. By night when I actually decided to start studying, one more update spoiled my mood (a real breaking news, this time) “Foot overbridge near Nehru stadium collapses, 23 injured“. I suggest you read all of these.

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry over these turn of events of just one day. In my wildest of imaginations, I had once wished that CWG turns into a great disaster and leads to heavy reforms in the sports commission of India. But now that it has actually turned out so, I feel helpless, really ashamed of the people who sit there on their fat asses, fill their filthy coffers and joke around with the fate of this country and its people!

  2. Hey..
    same feeling.. I am rooting for this to be such a great disaster and it is going the right way! When you are disconnected and viewing it from a third person’s perspective, things are funny actually… its some kind of a dark humor 🙂
