Goodbye...O Shera...

On 14th October 2010, in the beautifully and colourfully lit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, amidst a crowd of more than 60,000 people, accompanied by Shaan and his silky voice, the adorable mascot of CWG-2010, Shera, appeared before the world for the very last time to mark the end of the 12-day long extravaganza. The success of CWG-2010 will definitely be a memorable chapter in the lives of many people. After so much of media speculations regarding the fate of the games, I must say Delhi surpassed the expectations of all and put up a great show. The entire city came together to be a part of the celebrations. The best part of the games was that a lot of our own players, mostly from small cities and small towns, not just got a chance to portray their talent before the world but also to outperform highly experienced players from countries like Australia, England, etc. My salutes to all of them. They have truly made the nation proud!! Undoubtedly, we are capable of organising even bigger events than these games. It's just that we have to fight corruption unitedly before going ahead. Anyways, commonwealth games-2010 will be dearly missed by the viewers for all the excitement and entertainment, by the players from other countries for the warm hospitality and open hearts with which they were welcomed, by our own champions who made us proud and definitely by the rest of the world for it got to see such a wonderful amalgamation of different indian cultures and a mosaic of beautiful colours. Delhi Rocks!!
