Commonwealth Games

Commonwealth Games

The Commonwealth Games are set to kick off in a few weeks with India hosting. This article makes it seem like a chaotic build up to the $6-billion event, comparing it to putting together an India wedding. There’s a lot of coverage about the Games, but I’m intrigued by this blog (or forthcoming blog) by Anjali Nayar of Canada’s CBC Sports. The blog’s mission: “Through my experiences discovering India’s unique world of sports and games, I hope to present CBCSports.ca readers with a picture of modern India – in all its colours.” I hadn’t even heard of the ancient Indian games she mentions: kabaddi (a mix of wrestling and rugby) and kho-kho (a form of tag) as well as the rural games of pittu and guli dunda.
