Not that India has that large of a contingent to begin with, but this would be a global embarrassment.

If this can bring our corrupt administrators to their knees then I think it is a good thing.

However, India is not the only country where corrupt administrators run sports. I refuse to believe that other corrupt and dictatorial regimes like Zimbabwe, Pakistan, North Korea, Iran, several of the African countries and also a few of the central Asian ones, have their sports affairs run by spotless people.

The IOC should ban them as well.

Oh, good. Now India has an excuse for not bringing home a dozen gold medals.

The Chinese must be giggling.

India's hopes of returning to Olympic games is still on hold. IOA has failed to impress IOC, with little bit of changes that it will bring to its constitution.
