Not withstanding the adverse comments and innumerable glitches in the approach to the opening of the Common Wealth Games, finally one can say:
India Can Do, Will Do and Did Do. And so did the players; doing India proud.

What the games have achieved for the country is in creating the feeling of oneness, a massive national integration. When a player won and the Indian flag went up and the national anthem played; it was the Nation in the medal winners head and heart, the feeling and emotion transparently visible and glowing bright on the continence and also amid the tumulusly cheering, in stadia, spectators and the multitude of the countrymen glued to their TV screens,

Games have brought the reality to the youth that there is more to life than Cricket; introducing them to many more games, some for the first time, given new icons and new role-models to look-up to follow and emulate.

In the process World class facilities have also been created to cater for the young sports persons to play and train-in.

The only nagging issue is the maintenance and upkeep of the infrastructure created once the euphoria of successful culmination of the games peters out.
