RE: Is India planning on bidding on the Olympic Games anytime in the near future?


Well, after Rio 2016, and if these Commonwealth games are deemed a success, I don’t see why 2020 can’t be possible.

It was just 2 weeks ago when people were afraid that they would not be ready (with some man made bridge collapsing and some of the venues that required a lot of cleaning). Well, apparently they did it. You can do a lot of cleaning with a billion people.

Now the next question is this -— WILL THIS GAME EXTRAVAGANZA MAKE MONEY ? OR DRAIN MONEY FROM THE ECONOMY ?

Most big games I know eventually cost the local economy money.

lolol, i hope not.

The people of Delhi and India have been absolutely disgusted by the incompetence, graft, and corruption of the authorities.

In fact, many middle and upper class families have planned getaway excursions while the games are on.

City is on a security lockdown that makes everyday life a hassle filled gauntlet.
