Let us not blame it on our culture.

True, I believe it! That is what says Arun Maira but the below case is a point relevant in the wave of open corrupt Common Wealth Games.

  • Some years ago, a German TV channel publicized what Indians had accomplished at the Maha Kumbh Mela in Allahabad in 2001. Over 60 million people were there, the largest gathering at any one place at any one time anywhere in the world. It was much larger than the Olympics or World Cup. The budget to provide the required facilities was less than Rs 50 crore. Remarkably good organization prevented any deaths. Millions of pilgrims fulfilled their dreams. Mission accomplished. Tata Motors' Project Jupiter in the 1980s designed and produced a new light commercial vehicle—the 407—without foreign technology to beat back Japanese competition. It was done in 18 months, a world record. Like the Maha Kumbh Mela, Project Jupiter achieved its goals with excellent project management and teamwork, both of which were missing in the organization of the Delhi CWG.
