We have slowly and steadily got used to the idea of Independence over the last many years. We now have achieved Independence from all things on which we were dependent earlier, like our families, natural resources, culture, traditions, leaders to a million other things. We have become so independent today that all we are left with is a sense of cynicism and ridicule, more so among the younger educated generation that is being fed a constant dose of sarcastic humor about the idea of India. So what happened to us? Allow me to dig a little deeper.

I am glad that the Commonwealth Games are happening in India. Also extremely glad with the way things are progressing. It is time we woke up to the reality that is India.
My above statement could be pretty confusing as to what I really intend to say. Am I excited about the games or am I skeptical? Answers to this I will try and give by talking about a lot of things that have been coming to my mind over the last few weeks. So here they are, please feel free to let me know what you think about each of the things that I talk about here.
