Come out and Play!

A chance to showcase India’s potential is 100 days to go! Ya, Commonwealth Games is just 100 days to go. This will showcase the world what we are made of. Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 are set to begin on the 3rd of October. Infact, the Queen Baton Relay is currently in Lahore, Pakistan. It’s set to reach India on 25th, June 2010(Tomorrow). Some months ago we are uncertain about the completion of the works for the game. But, now there are no issues regarding that and the works are on fast track. The Games committee are now satisfied. All the works are nearing completion.Majority of stadiums are inaugurated. The major setback is the uncompletion of Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium where the opening and closing ceremonies are held. But, Kalmadi has promised this will be the best Commonwealth Games ever! Let’s wait and see.

The total expense of the game is nearing Rs. 15000 crores. Our country has recently hosted a great deal of international events including Hockey World Cup, Boxing and Shooting. Games will be held in five stand alone stadia and six cluster venues. The Delhi Government has undertaken 24 infrastructures projects including games related roads, flyover, overpasses, parking places etc., but only 10 have been completed now. They are expected to be completed by July. All these projects will make our capital ‘a world class city’. I think that the participating countries should never complaint about the security setup. India is the safest country in the world!

Our country must have taken the prepartions for this games more seriously some years before. Now, we are rushing up in the last minute.

But, I am sure that Government of India and Olympic Committee of India can deliver an hi-tech, best ever Commonwealth Games ever! And this games will help in shifting the interest of Indian People from Money Oriented Cricket to real sporting events!

The New King of Grass! June 24, 2010

Hi everyone who are enjoying the Wimbledon Season! Though there  are three other Grand Slams, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis is considered as the most prestigious one. I am watching Wimbledon since 2008. I didn’t like to watch it last year since there is no Nadal!

The New King of Grass

I am a great fan of Rafael Nadal. In fact, I stopped seeing Tennis last year because there was only less Nadalism. Last year has been a bad year for my and your hero Nadal. But, this year he returned with a bang, clinching his fifth French Open Grand Slam Title and climbing to his own No. 1 spot.

In an typical Federer Grass Court Match as far as I have seen, Federer will enter the court, he will make his opponent run throughout the court, playing the game without any pressure winning in straight sets and then wave his hands to his fans to celebrate his victory.

But, every Fed-Express fan is upset is over the poor performance in the opening 2 rounds of the Wimbledon. We can’t forget the 5-set thriller first round match of Federer with Fallo. I have never seen Federer struggling like this to an normal experienced players. Round 2 was better for him yesterday. But, he was not able to withhand the service of his opponent, Bozoljac. He too was very good in service, and sometimes overshadowed Federer in services. Is this the end of Fed-Express?

We might have not forgottened what happened in Wimbledon Men’s Finals of 2008. Federer bursting into tears after losing to our King Nadal. That’s not a sign of an real champion. The bad thing about Federer is that he refuses to run rather than to leave the ball. He uses this tatics only. He doesn’t want to use his stamina. On the other hand, Nadal can run like an Bullet train. He doesn’t give up a shot, he tries atleast to do his best everytime he plays. Nadal’s matches will be very interesting. But, in an Federer Match one can see Federer domination with nothing but damn tatics!

Nadal was now playing well in grass courts also. He won the first round match at Wimbledon in Straight Sets sending the message to his rival breedwinner Federer. Today, he is going to play his second round match. It’s gonna be a piece of cake for the New King of Grass!
