Four Years On...

The Commonwealth Games have returned in 2014, this time in Glasgow and with a significant Indian contingent looking to make a mark and prove that Delhi 2010 was not merely on account of the home advantage. And so far, out contingent has gone off to a flying start, with the shooting and weightlifting events providing a fitting beginning.

Much water has flown under the bridge since Delhi 2010. Despite the massive corruption scam which still remains open, the event did go smoothly. However, it did ensure that any government will think twice before they bid for another sporting event. While this is sad, it did give good reason for India to invest in better sporting facilities. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's announcement of a Sports University in Manipur is a right step in this direction.

Opinions 24x7 wishes Team India the greatest of glories in Glasgow. Jai Hind!
