Australia AFP Written by Sandeep Dwivedi | Updated: August 5 2016 12:07 pm The Indian table tennis team at the Olympic Games Village in Rio on Monday (PTI Photo) Top News For years now India’s women athletes have marched in the breathtaking Olympics opening ceremonies wearing blazers over sarees They don’t like it but they don’t have a choice As Rio-bound shuttler Jwala Gutta told this newspaper “By wearing a blazer we are covering the look I probably wouldn’t wear it on top Probably I will be carrying it in my hand this time I love sarees and I really can do justice to them But the blazer…” Officials give their own justification for the apparent sartorial mismatch It’s being made westernised and formal and at the same time everyday Indian they say For the billions who tune in on day one of the Olympics what knee-length shorts are to Bermuda the blazer-saree combination is to India’s women’s teams The “blazer-saree” symbolises the mix-and-match of a sporting system where the twain have finally met Over the last decade or so corporates in suits have been seen in Sports Authority of India corridors and sports federation offices This new ecosystem flush with corporate funding and government grants has athletes who are genuine medal contenders and know their worth With a cast like that turf wars are expected and petty ego battles What was feared did happen in what wasn’t a pretty countdown to this year’s Olympics Like in the past even this time around much before our athletes reluctantly dress up for D-Day India has managed to look ridiculous Once again officials and athletes were busy debating issues that should have been addressed much before the Olympic year commences It’s been the case so often that there is a predictable pattern to this four-year ritual You know the Olympics are round the corner when Indian sports’ problem child tennis starts making noises throws its usual tantrum “Who will play doubles this time” is the question that makes fans cringe It’s that same excruciatingly boring soap opera with layers of intrigue Four years ago Paes wanted Rohan Bopanna as his partner not Mahesh Bhupathi After days of drama Bopanna preferred Bhupathi over Paes This time around Bopanna again didn’t want Paes but he has been forced to play with him Meanwhile Sania Mirza continues to avoid Paes After Bhupathi at London 2012 she will be with Bopanna at Rio 2016 RIO 2016 OLYMPICS: CLICK HERE FOR EXTENSIVE EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE So has India got its doubles pairing right or have the officials succumbed to pressure Or have the players prevailed Those with their ear to the ground say Paes-Bopanna are India’s best bet But they add a rider: “They don’t get along” On the other hand Bopanna-Sania are seen as close friends Rider No2: It is being said that Paes and Sania had a better chance to win a medal It’s this complex incestuous relationship between this set of friends/foes and their choice of partners which is responsible for India’s mysterious Olympic record Paes Bhupathi Sania between them have won 36 Grand Slam doubles titles but no Indian pair has even been seen on the Olympic podium The other news staple in the months before the Olympics concerns the “dope tests” So far three Rio-bound Indians have tested positive The use of performance-enhancing drugs is a global problem On the international list of dope cheats India ranks third It’s a statistic which proves that there is rampant use of drugs by our athletes But see it alongside the fact that India finished 55th on the medals tally at London 2012 and a scandalous thought comes to mind: Neither our athletes nor the drugs they use are world class So can’t they be policed or monitored With athletes staying away from national camps and frequently going on corporate-sponsored exposure jaunts abroad it’s a difficult ask Even the camps aren’t safe something proved convincingly by the Narsingh Yadav doping episode Despite the grainy sting operation done on SAI hostel cooks forensics of the spiked daal and the FIR naming a junior wrestler it is still not clear who masterminded the conspiracy against India’s big medal hope at Rio This was a new low for Indian sports There is collateral damage too The country’s greatest-ever OIympian was painted as a sneaky manipulator who they tweeted was heartlessly settling an old score The wrestling federation officials and government’s top sports administrators were openly taking sides This isn’t how a professional sporting set-up should react when faced with a grave crisis But after those manic days there is sudden silence now Narsingh is in the clear but there is a thick smoke blanket around wrestling No one is talking about the grave allegations carelessly thrown around some time back Considering the sudden truce between the warring camps it is clear that dirt is being brushed under the carpet At the root of this unwanted controversy is the arbitrary way in which federations work and how they succumb to the pressures of factions When Sushil asked for a trial and Narsingh refused the federation didn’t have a convincing answer There were no rules set in stone no firm voice of reason Wrestling has a professional league and big corporate funding but its officials were acting like organisers of a village dangal When faced with a difficult decision to decide a winner they were getting influenced by the powerful front row voices In days to come it will be clear whether or not India made the right choice in picking its Olympians We will know if India picked the right doubles pair and the best wrestler in the 74 kg category In case there is a drop in the medal count from last time and if wrestling and tennis are responsible for that India will need to seriously reevaluate priorities If you want to excel in modern sports you need comprehensive plans with everyone on the same page For that you need to get rid of many things from the amateur days You could start by letting the women decide if they want to wear the blazer over the saree [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Manjeet Kripalani |

par with Indias national growth and if the next government pushes actively for growthit could outpace the country Part of this remarkable progress is the massive number of poverty alleviation schemes being deployed by both the state and Delhi Billions have been invested over the last five years In this regardUP is a giant welfare lab But in Indian termsit is also a rare success becauseeven with leakages to corrupt politiciansenough spending has actually made it to the ground to benefit the worst-off Simultaneous with the poverty programmes is the infusion of pride for the Dalit the community
