Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games

The closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games just concluded in Australia. The last bit of the closing ceremony had Aishwariya Rai, Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherji et al. Now I saw the video online somewhere, where the quality was not too good so there is a possibility that the audio was not synced up the video. But I doubt that. The Channel 9 commetator called Aishawariya Rai - Isha Sherwani, and called Priyanka Chopra - Aishwariya Rai. A case of mistaken identity? The announcer at the stadium had gotten it right, just the commentator was all confused. So people who are wondering what bollywood stars were doing at the closing ceremony of the commonwealth games, the next games are in Delhi. They also unveiled the mascot, "Sher Khan". The commentator was saying Sher Khan, and it almost sounded like Shah Rukh Khan. You need to say it fast with an "strine" accent to see what I mean. The mascot costume was very tacky. The design is cute but it looked like some guy in a baggy halloween costume. Come on people we can do better than. The adverstiment for Delhi 2010 was also aired, the best part of the ad is end where they have jalebi with the words Delhi, yumm!!

I want to assure everyone that Delhi is very much capable to host common wealth games. Indian government is going to invest a huge amount of money i.e US$1.6 billion for preparation of CWG. So this is the most expensive CWG ever (compared to Manchester 2002 - approx. US$420 million, and Melbourne 2006 - approx. US$ 1.1 billion). This amount not included infrastructure development activities like roads, airports and flyovers.commonwealth games delhi
