It's goodbye London!


As crowds roared, Olympians cheered, music blazed and flashbulbs rippled through the Olympic stadium, the curtains came down Sunday on the world's biggest sporting event. It's goodbye London and the Olympic Cauldron will be lit next at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia.




India will host it one day. The other 3 BRIC countries have done it, already, only a matter of time for india. They can build on commenwealth performance, use the Nehru stadium for some sports. India needs olympics to put it on the map. The bid to host olympics must start now though. If they start now, maybe can host it in 2028 or 2024 at a push. I'm sure they will do it this century, but country needs to take interest in sport and build on 6 medals of 2012. Maybe get cricket in 50 over , 20 over and 6 over format into olympics, they have plenty of cricket stadiums as well as using them for archery. oh and make Khabadi into olympics sport, this will generate interest in olympics. as host nation they would surely achive the 25 medal target

With 25 medals targetted in next Olympics at Rio de Jeneiro in Brazil,India has all the right and facilities to host Olympics in 2020.As always a resurrected India will lend all physical, moral and financial support to our sports men and women as being showered to Cricket players now.If China can top the list why not India-the land of Arjun-.?

WILL or SHOULD INDIA EVER HOST AN OLYMPIC GAME? This question must be turning over in the minds of millions of Indians, I am sure. After the ignomous and slipshod show, namely, The Commonwealth Games, that was hosted by India not very long ago, it is very possible that most Indians surely want to shun all Sports events, sans (British) cricket. If that be so, IT IS A WRONG ATTITUDE. Like Confucius Says “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”. China which never participated in any Olympics soon after the Red Eevolution, entered the Area in a BIG way,only lately, and today they are challenging the advanced nations in all categories. Perhaps, here is a lesson that India can well learn from Chinese wisdom: TO RISE EVERY TIME WE FALL.
