Can Professional Badminton Pick Up In India?

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Thomas Cup and Uber Cup are two prestigious events held in Badminton where players represent their country (similar to Davis Cup in Tennis).

Currently, Thomas Cup and Uber Cup Championships are held in New Delhi.

As the turn out in the stadium was very poor, there was an interesting conversation that got started in Facebook about this topic. I did express my views to my friends there, but thought it would help to provide a collective thought here on the same topic.


These empty stands do show exactly the viewership level for such a huge event in India.

For any professional sport to succeed, there has to be acceptable viewership levels so that businesses will love to show case their products in front of the audience.

Law Breakers and Social Media tools

While all of us are told to follow the rules as it is the right thing to do, many of us would have seen people who are supposed to make sure the rules are followed, themselves break the rules.

I got a chance to take a snap of a police car that was going in front of me, which blatantly violated the red signal and just took a left turn. The photo might not be very clear, but what I saw is something each one of us have seen at least once before – where a person in charge of the law, bends the rules to their convenience.

I know some of you might come back and say that he might have been in an emergency, etc etc. None, I caught him break the law on camera and in a human court of law he is guilty.

How do we fight against such nuisance, without putting ourselves in trouble? Social networking sites like Facebook have become useful tools for this. The New Delhi Police have setup their own facebook page where citizens can easily post the information with pictures on any issues

This is actually a easier way to post any photos you take, which can be evidence to help the police teams catch the law breakers. Since the photo I took was not in India, I decided to post the photo on my blog itself 🙂
