Commonwealth Games 2010 Opening Ceremony Pictures

The 19th Commonwealth Games which begins today, started off with the opening ceremony last night at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in New Delhi. A near-capacity 60,000 crowd enjoyed the spectacle which, as its centrepiece, featured an illuminated ‘Aerostat’. Nagada drummers beat out the countdown to the opening accompanied by traditional Shankha trumpeters as the stadium lights were dimmed and the "Aerostat", a reportedly nine-million-dollar (400-million-rupee) white helium-filled balloon, rose 25 meters above ground level.

Hundreds of thousands of residents of the Indian capital lined the streets, with a global television audience of more than a billion watching the two-and-a-half-hour event which heralds 11 days of competition.

  5. fuck those indians... i read one of the indians and the indian news channel saying that "we shut the mouths and we showed them what we are"... though it was happened in india but the choreographer and the crew were from west... though it was awesome and they showed their culture... but the real indian behaviour can only be observed when being with an indian... (I personally observed INDIA the most dangerous place for ladies)... if u wanna go india please only go to the southern part...
