Amjad Maruf highlights that the Indian government spent Rs. 40 crores on the Bollywood stars for an eleven-minute show at the recently concluded Commonwealth games in Melbourne. Assuming this to be true, I fully agree with him. He ads," the government had spent even a fraction of that amount on the athletes who participated in the event then we would have had some more medals in the countrie's Kitty. It is really shameful that the government gives step motherly treatment to the sports and sportsmen and spends crores on Bollywood actors that has no connection with sports world at all". As I see it,Indian sports need good administration, facilities that are 100X better and bigger than waht the country has today, professional management and a rewarding environment. It's a pity that even the medal winners at the Commonwealth games will not receive even one percent of what Bollywood stars like got for simply waving to the crowds & dancing for a couple a minutes. It's high time that the sports adminsitration get its priorities correct. Splurging on bollywood stars when the basic sports setup is so crunched for resources is downright ridiculous. To those bollywood stars - We demand that you return back these ridiculous professional fees back again to the sports federation(s)and earn your grace and goodwill back.
