DO WE NEED TO HOST THE THE ASIAN GAMES ?

20 Apr

No funds for poor ,landless farmers.

No funds for hardworking defence personnel,

No funds for scientific research,

No funds for infrastructure development,

No funds for destitute senior citizens,

No funds for afforestation,

No funds for wildlife conservation,

No funds for augmentation of drinking water supply,

No funds for enhanced power generation,

No funds for elementary schools and their teachers  😉

No funds for maintaining huge stadiums already built,

No funds for allowing growth of poor but talented sportspersons..

All these can wait till we get more funds from World Hundi.

Remember we belong to a poor country with a huge population..

But we need to host extravagant shows and so we have to make allowances for it somehow .Such shows will make our sportspersons work harder  and acheivements will be seen in the next century.Who says so?  Our great forward thinking sports administrators have this divine vision.

As they say in Sanskrit: RUNAM KRTVA GHRTAM PIBET

    Visionless, is what I’d call such callous men who are at the helm. You’ve hit the nail on the head neel3. You’ve laid the lackadaisical approach of sports honchos, threadbare. This is why India fares so poorly at the Olympics and other world sports events. There’s a lot of money in this sector but the administrators lack the will to channelise those funds and energies in attaining goals and pride for the nation.

    Hosting extravagant shows is silly, as we have other pressing tasks to attend to — poverty for starters!

    Love the poetic tinge to the post!

    PS: What does that sloka mean?

    It roughly means that we often borrow money to be able to drink ghee( not a necessary commodity )

    your analogies are funny(don’t mind), but they hit straight!! another ploy, where the country can project itself in a fantastic(?) manner, while the basic needs are left to the wind.

    ‘Mani’ says, lot of money is saved by not hosting the Asian games.

    Now…will he keep an account of how much of money is saved and where are they utilizing it to benifit us, please?

    As a famous saying goes, “Is desh ka kuch nahi hone wala hai”, sadly.

    Agree 100%… The only people who benefit from this is people like Suresh Kalmadi and his ego… and the contractors/builders who get contracts to build this infrastructure that will go to waste once the games are complete…

    Another saying comes to mind “Hotte ge hittu illandru jutti ge mallige hoovu”
