  • India should be given a chance

    People opposing India's proposed hosting of the Olympic Games base their arguments on stereotypes and racial prejudices. You can't blame an entire country and its people for living in a "hot climate." Oh, but I forgot that "Westerners would not be accustomed to living in India and eating the food there". Who cares if there are hundreds of countries in Asia and Africa that are unfortunately unable to call themselves "Western". As long as the whites are satisfied, what do we care? And there are hundreds of tourist sites in India, just as there are in China, the host country of the 2008 Olympic Summer Games. Do you honestly believe that food poisoning is nonexistent in China? No! Food poisoning can occur in any country, but where was the talk of "oh, the Westerners cannot handle the food in China, let us pick a more suitable location." Sure, there are many impoverished people in India, but there will always exist in societies with large populations. Are there impoverished people in China? Yes. The United States? Yes. Indonesia? Yes. Brazil? Yes. And notice how some of the richest nations are also the smallest- AKA Luxembourg. If the Olympic Council truly wants to make it known that they encourage diversity and understanding, then they should allow India to host the Summer Olympics. India has always been the site of countless diversity, as a country of hundreds of languages, dozens of religions, and a myriad of cultural ethnicities. I leave you with a quote from one of the greatest WESTERN authors in all of history, Mark Twain:

    "India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. All the dreams, knowledge, and endeavors of mankind are forever treasured here."

  • If they can prove that they can establish a safe environment.

    If they can prove that they can establish a safe environment and be able to create a total situation to support the influx of people, then they should be able to host. People often only look to the large super powers of the world to host the Olympics, but if they can prove they can do it, then they should be given the opportunity.

  • I ask, Why not???

    This is the peak at which our country is in the eyes of the biggest social economical and corporate names. The country is gaining a good reputation and hosting The Olympics will make a bigger impact on the world's perception towards India.

    Development is in order every where and hosting The Games just might give the deadline and standard quality that needs to be kept in check.

    The country will have no problem whatso ever in hosting the Games

  • India should host the Olympics.

    Like every other country India should have an equal chance to host the summer olympics, they do have competitors in the games granted they do not medal but getting to the olympics is an accomplishment by itself and I am sure many of these athlete's in India endure hardships to chase their dream like any other olympian so why not give India the chance to showcase athletes from around the world .

  • India Should Host Olympics

    India is one of the powerful nation in the world right now. India gives it's hands in any subjects. Hosting an Olympics is the dream of every nation. Hosting Olympics would be very expensive, but it is an opportunity for our country. Even though India conducted Asian Games, Commonwealth Games, South Asian Games etc. So we should take the Opportunity. India's head should be arise every time everywhere.

  • Yes, India should host the Olympics

    No country in southern Asia have ever hosted the Olympics. They've only competed in the Olympics. Mostly, North America and Europe hosted them. The only countries in Asia that hosted the Olympics were China and Japan. India has a colorful culture that makes the opening ceremony the best part of the Olympics. India must have a turn to host the Olympics.

  • India should not host the olympics

    One, India has shown absolutely no economic growth and development due to the caste system. The caste system is a division of society in which Indians are ranked on their wealthiness. Second, They show no growth in the environment due to pollution which gives them diseases due to air and water pollution. Also, India wont be able to bring many of their own people into the olympics stadiums because 16.2 of the people of India are Dalits. Dalits are VERY VERY poor homeless people in India. Lastly, India's government is so corrupt to the point where the government funds terrorism!!!! So if the olympics were held in India, the olympics would be a very likely target to terrorists due to India's current condition.

  • Not always the ideal environment for peak performance.

    When the Commonwealth games were held in India a couple of years ago, something like 30% of the athletes ended up with food poisoning despite efforts to prevent it. Given how difficult it is for Westerners to stay healthy in India, it is not an ideal environment for athletes to reach their peak performance.

  • It's too early for india to host such big events.

    See, it's 2016 now. India is now slowly picking up its next gear in development and economy.It's slowly moving to become a rich country. It would be a big burden for the country to host the Olympics now. It will be soo ideal , if it host's after 20 years." India, it's a country history, honesty, nobility, land of culture and tradition , no.1 importer of gold, a boaster of world's third powerful armed forces, the fastest developing country, the best space researching country, world's fastest growing economy, and so on ........" , for a country which has a lot to boast, it is a cakewalk to host olympics in a manner how everyone does, but to host olympics in it's royal way with golden railing in its stadiums, it needs a few years to grow. I will be happy if india host 2040 or 2044 olympics in its sunrise city of Amaravati.

  • India should not host the Olympics

    I have nothing personal against India or Indians, but this is not a place for the Olympics. There are no attractions at all. I think if they did go crazy and have the Olympics in India that there would be fewer than ever participants. I sure as heck would not volunteer to help at the Olympics, especially with building. Its also too hot there.

  • India is able to host but due to the condition of under developing

    I am not saying that our India is not able to host such big event but rather wasting money on such activities it should be given to ngos or other supportive organisations to improve our economic ans social conditions because we have been free from colonial rule since 40s but we are just wallowing under the doldrums of developing country. Every Indian's eyes are waiting for developed and self dependent INDIA.

  • India should host olympics

    Yes.. India can.... But Yes, India is ready to host Olympics when Olympics management activities should be taken by sincere IAS and IPS and other sincere officers. If the politicians takes care of management activities for sure it will be another Common wealth games. If India will get chance to host Olympics, I prefer IAS officers manage that otherwise no.

  • Let's get our basics right first

    India should focus on all around development before thinking of hosting the Olympic Games. Our government's focus should be on providing the basic amenities to each and every citizen of India and improve the infrastructure and the living conditions.
    Corruption should be reduced to the maximum extent possible and then bid for the Olympics.

  • India is not financially stable enough to host the Olympic games at this time.

    India, although projected to be the most populous nation within the next decade, is not financially stable enough to host an Olympic games. In spite of a growing amount of affluent citizens, the majority of Indian citizens still live in conditions that most Westerners would find abominable. It is, therefore, not logical for India to host the Olympics.
