  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Saves the country an embarassment

    The commonwealth games hosted in India were such a huge disappointment and brought shame to the nation because of the poor infrastructure and nulti-million dollar scam and Let's not get too ahead of ourselves yet...Let's take one step at a step and not be over ambitious. Sure the money could be we spent elsewhere .

  • Corruption and Bureaucratic red tapism should die first

    With corruption rearing its ugly head and dampening the confidence and morale of the citizens and others worldwide, I do not feel this is going to change in the near future. Better not host Olympics than host it, tarnish its image with our ways which we never mend and bring bad name to our country.

  • India needs toilets first before Olympics

    India needs to improve its infrastructure greatly and also reduce corruption or else it will turn into the mother of all disasters. Get more experience with other big events...Asian games, world expo, university games, world cup football and cricket before they tackle something like the Olympics. India has a fifth of the world's population and it has a right to hold the Olympics but the preparations and corruption and the cost of the commonwealth games should a warning.

  • 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.

  • Not a conducive environment.

    The environment in India is not conducive to hold the Olympics. Not only would the competitors get sick, but also all the visitors who are unaccustomed to the food and water there. Overall, India is not really a great tourist spot not only because of these two issues, but also because of the amount of waste laying around.

  • No, India should not host the Olympics.

    No, I do not believe that India should host the Olympics. I believe that India is too overcrowded and lacks the basic and advanced infrastructure needed in order to host such a large event like the Olympics. The Olympics is an expensive event of which millions of people flock to to watch and should be hosted elsewhere.

  • No India shouldn't.

    Check out what happened to Brazil after hosting the Olympics. Whats the guarantee that our hungry government would not make such scenario. In a country where so many people are still living below poverty line, wasting money on such an international event is not done. And at last it won't benefit the people.
