With the Olympics events going on, lots of things to ponder, despite it really being a great brand ambassador for international unity:
1. Were security measures truly upto the standard for 10K + atheletes to safely compete?
2. Are all players truly playing in the right spirit of the game that this event symbolizes?
3. The oft repeated - Why is India, despite having one of the largest populations and sending one of the bigger contingents still not able to get higher medal tallies?
As the event rolls on, you cannot but think about these things..
