Commonwealth games 2010: The Index of a "New" India?

The 2010 Commonwealth Games was Delhi's and India's biggest sporting event ever. In the immediate aftermath of the Games, this paper sets out to analyse the story of the Games' legacy- its politics, economic impact and to what extent was it successful in transforming Delhi into a global city and India into a sporting force to reckon with. Having already documented the history and politics of the Commonwealth Games with a focus on Delhi,, this paper is an extension in trying to place Delhi 2010 in perspective, understand its long term meaning and explain its lasting legacy.
