Glasgow CWG 2014: Acquittal of two Indian officials by court is a big blow to biased English administrators
Well, just a day after the grand conclusion of the 20th Commonwealth Games at Glasgow, Scotland, some great news has come. The two Indian officials, perhaps trapped in order to malign the image of India, have been released by the honorable court. What a big blow to the conspirators and what a relief for our officials and all the citizens of this great country called India.

Obviously, as the title of the event "Commonwealth Games" itself denotes, the attitude adopted by the current organizers and former colonial rulers has been biased. They have not found it easy to digest that any former colony of their past regime is gradually on the way to challenge their supremacy in sports.

Already, many of the so called developed countries are seemingly jealous of the economic growth and development India has attained in the recent times. This is simply not acceptable to them.

For example, Trinidad is famous due to Brian Lara and Jamaica due to Chris Gayle. Likewise, Sachin Tendulkar's name has become synonymous to India. The biased nations should be able to clearly read the writing on the wall - India is emerging as strong a contender in the field of sports too.

In fact, as per the reports, prima facie there was no case against both of the officials and just on the basis of a complaint filed by their own citizens, police arrested them and off course, the Court rightfully acquitted them both.

This appears to be high time that instead of indulging in demoralizing Indian sportspersons through all possible means, these so called developed nations should accept that India is moving forward globally at a rapid pace in all the arenas including sports. No one, I repeat, no one can stop this. They try to defame us, be it push gate scandal in cricket or eliminating India's favored games like Archery and Tennis from the list of events at commonwealth.

With quite a few titles like World Cup, Indian cricket team has already given the message loud and clear. The supremacy of Vishwanathan Anand in chess or Geet Sethi in billiards are a few instances of our dominance. And there are many more sports like Wrestling and Shooting where India is always expected to make a mark.

But a million dollar question popping up in the minds of millions of the Indian fans is that how the persons responsible for deliberately tarnishing the image of India should be punished for their shameful acts?

Their media is by and large known for adopting a clear biased attitude against the progress achieved by India. I just intend to give a very recent example. I earnestly request the learned readers to just go through the extensive coverage by the foreign media when our officers were arrested and now when they have been acquitted by the honorable court, nobody is reporting it!

Since this is a sensitive issue directly related with the sentiments of millions of people, we should hope that the IOA and all concerned take all the necessary steps to take up the matter in the highest forum after seeking the help of Ministry of Sports and External affairs to ensure that justice is done.

This is a question of our national pride, integrity and it concerns people with self respect and dignity. Also, India has changed and its people have awakened, they have already shown wisdom during last few months but as they say, the expectations have also risen. Justice must prevail, do hope it will.
