Dude! Close The Debt

CWG 2010

CWG 2010

A call from the land of Kangaroos rang into the heads of the Commonwealth Games officials. CWG 2010 attracted the eyes of millions on three occasions namely the opening ceremony, highly aggrandized, eventful, star studded secondly the closing ceremony where the home came with the second top in medals tally, finally the scams.

Now Australian Foreign Minister, Kevin Rudd stirred the issue of closing the liabilities of unpaid bills to their firms.

The ministry promised to settle the debts within a span of ten days. This window period saved the faces of the CWG officials.

It is hard to realize that the big brother behind the most liked opening and closing ceremony was Ric Birch and the payment is hanging in the air for them too since last three and half months.

Only the land belonged to India perhaps, the executive producer, producers and choreographers were all the men of other land.

The most detesting comment was the team faced problem only at India; things went flawless in the previous years when they had worked for CWG or the Olympics in China or LA or Mexico.

The gentleman also had an abbreviation for India- “I’ll never do it again”.

The newly appointed Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Ajay Maken avowed that this issue would be settled and fixed the window period of ten days, whereas out Kalmadi stated that it was a regular practice to pay off the debts only having received the complete report.

He affirmed that it was “normal” practice, bringing a bad impression for the committee and the nation.

Kalmadi and Ajay take different stands, internal conflictions and external pressure has cornered the CWG committee.

Naturally Rudd was contrasting between Australian and the Indian Government to reporters recently and said that such a catch would never come to them as the monetary issues are always taken care off.

Losing millions of billions cash in scams, place where onions, alcohol, fuel cost the same, Is it healthy for the country and her reputation to encourage such debts and getting work done on promissory notes?

Bharathi Murali


Hello folks! I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
