ALL public transport buses/taxis run on natural gas to avoid pollution. The city roads are being upgraded; expressways connecting it to the fast growing suburbs of Gurgaon/Noida and beyond have been constructed/are under construction as part of the ambitious Golden Quadrilateral national highway program. Stadiums are being upgraded/constructed. The New Delhi suburbs of Gurgaon/Noida are growing fast as an investment destination for IT and manufacturing companies.

By 2010, New Delhi will be a changed city when it hosts the Commonwealth games. India is planning to build on this and bid for the 2016 Olympics. It will be interesting to see how it fares in this ambitious bid.

Whether it wins in 2016 or not, it makes logical sense to host Olympics sometime in future for the 2nd fastest economy in the world and 2nd largest in terms of population. By 2020, India can be one of the top 5 economies in the world. Things will look different then.
is delhi on time with its commonwealth games preparations? last i heard it was slightly behind schedule....lets hope it doesnt suffer the same fate as Kuala lumpur who thought CWG venues are good enough for an olympic games..best of luck to delhi...

Thanks for the good wishes. I wish South Africa the best in its endeavour too.

For Commonwealth 2010, New Delhi is currently investing most of its effort in upgrading the transport infrastructure. I think work on renovated/new stadiums and the games village has yet to start. The Asian games were held there in 1982, so the plan is to use the sports infrastructure built then as a base and build on it. As per a recent government report, $1.25 billion is expected to be spent on the 2010 games.

New Delhi is also planning to bid for the Asian games in 2014. Ofcourse the Olympics is a much bigger challenge than the Asian or Commonwealth games. An investment to the tune of $5 billion may be required. New Delhi, or any other city, has to be world class to earn the right to host Olympics.

Why China has to recognize Tibet as a free and independent country? Tibet is a part of China throughout these 800 years. When was the time America was discovered?
Do you know Chinese history? If not, then shut up.

Will Taiwan be recognised at the Beijing Olympics under their own flag, or again as a watered down "China-Taipei" with an obscure symbol of a flag?

They will use "Chinese Taipei" as before.

There's no reason to change it.

The more you post, the less the basic knowledge and courtesy you show to all of us. I think it's time for us to leave you alone. I don't want to trash this thread to another political flame. But next time when you want to prove you are right, prove it with knowledge and evidences, not with your "little brother".
