Kalmadi strikes again!

We know Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. We also know Dr. Abdul Kalam. But who’s Abdul Kalam Azad?

The Delhi CWG Organizing Committee chairman made another faux pas in the outstanding opening ceremony of the games, when referring to the former President of India. Suresh Kalmadi just can't seem to get it right.

But to be fair, let’s throw in some perspective. Kalmadi is tired of the criticism he's been surrounded with and the nervousness showed. A little slip of tongue here and there doesn't hurt anyone :P. And then, the Maulana had adopted the pen name "azad" (free) to mark his mental freedom from a narrow view of life and religion. Not a bad salutation for our beloved former president, what say? Perhaps, this might be the ONE good thing Kalmadi did during the games (albeit unknowingly). 

P.S - I am rather surprised Kalmadi even gave him a special mention. That guy could have easily missed the great man. 


  1. Ira well said!

    I am glad that the guy

    actually gave him a special mention

  2. The crowd did it for everybody.

  3. @ Bhavya: Thanks! :)
