This is it !!! The greatest sporting spectacle of the world; the mother of all sporting battles.
Is it time for India to start thinking about hosting the Olympics?
Why India should host Olympics?• Great prestige and honour• Successfully hosted 1951 Asian Games,1982 Asian Games and CWG 2010• Benefit for Indian athletes and sportspersons• Better avenues for training and practice• Help INDIA in coming in Global picture & also bring rich dividends.• Improve tourism and infrastructure leads to cause employment and boost economy.
Why INDIA should not host Olympics?• Requires millions of dollars• Political controversies• Brings more corruption and scandal cases for the government• Brings poverty as India is a poor country
The Olympics requires the host nation to provide three basic elements:
But INDIA will hostsomeday..........................
Areas where development is required...• Only thing in India which is needed to develop like government should take strong action to stop the corruption and make sensitive environment for Olympics Games and provide better facility for foreigners.• India would need a variety of training facilities for multiple sports to find and develop as many athletes as possible in advance of hosting a game. It would need to decide that merely hosting is not enough, and that they need to create a national celebration of sport that involves both elite and amateur athletes.
Olympics in India: My Perspective I dont think its right to host in the current situation whichis prevailing in the country. First let our Indian athletesimprove and try to get recognised in most of the gamesthen hosting an Olympic event might be consideredgood. Money might not be a major factor but theinfrastructure and capacity to accommodate the pouringtourists and athletes will be a major factor. It is a timeconsuming event and needs long planning . Hope it willbe host by another 15 years or so.
