      Well Friends, I do agree with you. The best option could have been to create a Modern Facility say about 20 - 30 KMs away from Delhi with all kinds of Stadiums at one place leading to development of another Mellinium City. What was further required, a Metro link from Delhi to the above city. All visitors would have stayed in Hotels or wherever in Delhi and around. No great fuss was required to uproot trees, dig roads, side lanes, sequential (un-coordinated) digging by various agencies for cables and pipes, beautification of Karolebagh, Khan Market, covering Jhuggis with beautiful tents etc. in haste without techno-economic planning. Every body knows what India is. Costmetic changes can always get exposed. One has to understand the ground realities and work to solve the problems in well coordinated manner, with clear planning, prioritisation, focus and dedication. This in my mind is not the agenda of Government.There is a lot to be done to once again recreate India as "Golden Sparrow". It is a pitty that we have lost all ethics and sense to do something for this country where still 50% of the population is still poor.
