Delhi Common Wealth Games 2010

After years of preparations, national embarrassment and humiliation, Common Wealth Games opens in New Delhi, India with sparkling fireworks amid state corruption, security issues, improper facilities, tourist killings, monkey guards and outbreak of dengue fever.

Britain's Prince Charles is the guest of honor of the opening event which Indian media claims has overshadowed the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. Opening extravaganza is spiced with Bollywood music, traditional folk dancing and mind-boggling yoga moves.

In the weeks leading up to tonight's opening, a pedestrian bridge outside the main stadium collapsed, the athletes' village was labelled unlivable as many teams threatened to pull out. Meanwhile, India's Rediff website claims that 'Delhi Games Village is better than Beijing'.

The entertainment will then end with a Bollywood-style finale featuring a theme song created by Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman of Slumdog Millionaire-fame.
