$2.2 billion Vs $1000

Recently read a report about a proposal being pushed by New York's Governor, George Pataki, and New York City's mayor, Michael Bloomberg - to build a world class Football stadium in Manhattan.

They are ready to spend so much for this ($2.2 billion), in an effort to succeed in their bid to host the 2012 Olympics (eventhough Paris is ahead in the race).

Manhattan Vs Mannargudi (ethugai monai??) Posted by Hello

Does this type of monetary resource constraint affect the growth of the game in India? I think so. (See the picture above).

We hardly spend $1000 for development of a ground. Not only resources, but also politics. If our guys can play well in a ground as in the picture given below, will they not do well with a well-developed infrastructure?

If we see India's position in International games, the situation is alarming. Compare the same no. of people both in China & India. They are on the top slot and we are nowhere near them. (China is not only Manufacturing for the world,but it is also manufacturing.. world class atheletes for them).

Can we expect some reforms / dedication from the concerned machinery for the identification / development of sports talents?
