India is the right place to hold a commonwealth games

I'm pleased India are hosting the commonwealth games 2010
thoroughly deserved too
a  diverse people in a land that has a rich musical heritage
a rich cultural nation of a 1 billion strong
its composite of costume, architecture like its forts , art,  religions , great Buddhist temples , stupas , yoga, dancing , cuisine,  family , and  modes of bringing up children in those families , well all these add up to a  cultural life on an everyday basis
For the majority of Indians its music  too holds a central place in the order of things
from its simple hill tribe melodies with its drum and cymbal dancing ,   to today's classical music  with its wind instruments ,
add that all up  and it  puts India at the top of the musical world
It manages to do all this , keep its independence , its outside Europe and yet it has
the 2nd fastest growing economy in the world today
Its people are known wide as being friendly , peaceful and warm and so in  2010
India is the right place to hold a commonwealth games
mixed in a games,  it has much that it could teach  the other 70 different cultures of these commonwealth games  in 2010

Giro, you missed out a caste system that makes the British rule look like a tea party. Forced marriages, slave labour, sewage infested rivers, slums, honour killings, religeous killings, racism, state involvement in arming millitants to commit ethnic cleansing in Sri Lanka.
You painted such a fantasy picture but the reality is different.
