The beginning : Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and Indian President Pratibha Patil launched the baton relay.

It's a journey that promises to use every mode of transport — be it a plane, helicopter, ship, submarine, battle tank, motorcycle, parachute and even a camel. Travelling over 20,000 kms, the Commonwealth Games baton is set to make an entertaining tour of the country as it travels to Delhi for the Games in October.

Scheduled to reach India from Pakistan at the Wagah border on June 25, grand plans are afoot to showcase the baton as a build-up to the Games. Unveiling the plans, organising committee chairperson, Suresh Kalmadi said, "The Queens Baton Relay will be an exciting event that will generate passion for Olympic sport in the country."
