1 City, 11 days, 12 stadium, 17 games, 71 countries and 7500 athletes will participate in one sports event that is called XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 in New Delhi. Every controversy which has taken part of this commonwealth games
has been left behind and now every Indian looks forward to each and every sportsperson which is taking part in this games under the flag of India that they prove India whatever happen in past we will never look past and we people always look forward. This has been shown by every Indian who have been watched the opening ceremony in JLN Stadium, New Delhi. It was not just an opening ceremony it was really a great and great spectacular ceremony it was. So there was lots of things that have signified Indian rich cultural heritage, rich youth various dynamic varsity, rich traditions etc. One of the most signified moment was when Master Keshav, a tabla maestro just 2 years old has been performed just before HariHaran, the legend in Indian music. But it was the beginning of Indian rich cultural heritage. There was more signified performance like the cultural program from all Indian states, the rich journey of India railways. But not least at last we have watched the wonderful performance perform by Indian music legend who have been remarked us on international stage as well the AR Rahman started with ‘O,Yaro India Bula Liya………’ a commonwealth theme song followed by his internationally famous ‘Jai Ho……..’.
The Indian people will watched the sportsperson who can deliver better this time. Saina Nehwal, Chetan Anand-Jwala Gutta, Vijender Singh, Akhil Kumar, Sonia Chanu, Monika Devi, Leander-Bhupati, Sania Mirza, Rohan Bopanna, Somdev Devvarman, Abhinva Bindra, ManavJit Singh Sandhu, Samresh Jung, Gagan Narang, Tejaswini Sawant, K Poonia, Seema Antil, Sharath Kamal, Dola Banerjee, Sushil Kumar, Joshna Chinnappa and Women’s Hocky Team these are on my list of medalist after final day of game. The men’s Hocky team is not on my list because they most unpredictable games side in India like Indian Cricket Team. So I wish them Best of Luck from bottom of my heart and I will pray that the Indian team can get better rank from last commonwealth games which had been held on Melbourne, Australia in 2006 and they show better sportsmanship this time.

Tennis stars threaten to pull out
The entire fracas that hit Indian tennis on its face on Friday seems to be all about bills. Players say they’ve submitted all bills since 2008 but AITA has feigned ignorance on the matter. And if these bills aren’t cleared in time, then the Indian team of Somdev Devvarman, Rohan Bopanna, Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi might well be missing from the tennis courts in Delhi during the CommonWealth Games. So if the people expending in crores in their pocket why not the players are paid in time. How we can expect that they will do much for us in their respective games. The same drama we have seen before the Hocky World Cup held on Delhi earlier this year. So we have to be feel same on this type of drama.
Here I have mix two story of today that how are netas insensitive against common people. In one side our sports person who give us reason to feel proud and another side our netas always give us reason to same on us.
India’s pace battery led by Ashish Nehra demolished Sri Lanka to help their team win the Asia Cup with a comfortable 81-run win on Thursday. Dinesh Karthik top-scored with 66 as India made 268-6 after electing to bat in the day-night final, before the defending champions and hosts were shot out for 187. India, who last won the region’s premier one-day prize in 1994, denied Sri Lanka a hat-trick of titles following their victories in 2004 and 2008. Nehra claimed four wickets, including two in one over, as Sri Lanka were reduced to 51-5 by the 16th over before being bundled out in the 45th over. India never looked back after hard-hitting opener Tillakaratne Dilshan was dismissed off the fifth delivery, holing out to mid-on off seamer Praveen Kumar. Kumar, who made use of windy conditions to swing the ball, bowled an unchanged opening spell of nine overs in which he conceded just 29 runs. Fellow seamer Zaheer Khan bowled Upul Tharanga, before Nehra wrecked havoc by having Mahela Jayawardene and Angelo Mathews caught behind in the 14th over.
Nehra also removed Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara for 17, but Thilina Kandamby (31) and Chamara Kapugedera (55 not out) delayed the end. Nehra’s 4-40 was supported by Zaheer’s 2-36 and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja’s 2-29. Karthik, who replaced the injured Virender Sehwag, hit nine boundaries to lead India’s batting at the Rangiri stadium in Dambulla. Karthik put on 62 for the second wicket with Virat Kohli (28) and 46 for the third with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (38).Rohit Sharma propped up with the middle-order with a fluent 41, before Jadeja boosted the score with an unbeaten 25.
Congrats! Team India……….Thumbs Up for all the men in blue. This win is very valuable in respect of coming world cup will be held in Asian Sub-continent.
Finally, perhaps even mercifully, this rusted hulk of a team was towed away from the World Cup on Thursday, its battery dead, tires flat, windows smashed after a 3-2 loss to Slovakia, which was playing in its first World Cup.While Slovakia advanced, Italy, the defending champion and a four-time winner, exited after group play for the first time since 1974, having steered far off its intended course.A tie would have sent Italy to the second round, but even that remained elusive for a team that seemed aimless until late in the second half. Slovakia played more urgently, controlling much of the game, receiving two goals from forward Robert Vittek and refusing to be awed by Italy’s reputation.The most extraordinary act that Italy performed in this hapless World Cup was Thursday’s postgame soliloquy by its coach, Marcello Lippi, who retired after the match.
There will be much discussion about what went wrong. Many have criticized Lippi for relying on aging players, like defender Fabio Cannavaro, 36, and midfielder Gennaro Gattuso, 32, who both showed their years against Slovakia. The forwards he favored, like Alberto Gilardino, did not deliver here. And perhaps Lippi was too stubborn and loyal to call earlier on a reserve like Fabio Quagliarella, who played inspired on Thursday in the second half but was unable to lift his team fully from its torpor. Injuries did not help. Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, one of the best in the world, left Italy’s opening match and was told he had a herniated disk in his back. The playmaker Andrea Pirlo injured a calf muscle before the World Cup began and did not appear until the 56th minute on Thursday. It did not help, either, that creative players like Francesco Totti and Alessandro Del Piero had retired from the national team.
Happy New Year 2010!
I May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I’ve played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the relationships;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true!
When the New Year 2010 bell rings…
Let it signify new and better things for you,
let it signify a realisation of all things you wish for,
Let it signify a year of courage and believes,
Wishing you a very…very prosperous 2010 year ahead.
