Say No!

So, should Delhi bid for the Olympics? Certainly not, if we are to have a repeat of how the Commonwealth Games (CWG) were organised; and of course not, if we are going to try and compete with Beijing 2008, which spent $40 billion (Rs 180,000 crore!). But maybe yes, if we can learn to do it differently, at modest budgets, and within cost — because some cities have done just that. But since the likelihood is that we will repeat the CWG experience, it is probably better to keep away from bidding for the 2020 Olympics.
