south asian games 2006

the recent south asian games is probably the worst for netizens cause there is no decent websiteregarding the event. the site is scrappy to say the least and it takes atleast 3 days for them to update it . this is bad!!! however india is doing well as always in the games but i think that india shouldnt be participating in such useless games as india has sent their under 20 sides for the hockey and football events.even the shooters arent participating .saying all that i think india can do better in sports like boxing and cycling .though it seems to get some international exposure foe new talent but i hardlythink it as a platform for the future cause there is a wide gap between the olympics and this event .the aim of this game is promote co-operation among the south asian countries eventhough i have to say that its going to take more than a games event to promote co-operation and peace
