The Commonwealth Games are Delhi’s biggest sporting event ever. As the prospect of playing host stares at the city, there are questions that loom large, unasked and ominous: Who will emerge the winner in this contest to present Delhi as a truly global city? Will Indian sport gain at all? How much is it costing the person on the street? Who has actually benefited from all the digging and window-dressing? And who has lost livelihoods, dreams, perhaps even lives?
This book is the story of the politics of these Games, the money that is being spent and the priorities that have shaped them.
With access to hitherto unexplored archives, including primary documents from the first-ever British Empire Games in 1930, this book is also the first and only attempt to place Delhi 2010 in perspective within the history of the Commonwealth Games, what they mean to the world at large, and indeed the larger question of why we need a Commonwealth at all. Explaining their relevance for India, Sellotape Legacy: Delhi and the Commonwealth Games provides a unique understanding of the Delhi Games in their entirety.
