   OLYMPIC BLUES    The Indian government has spent over Rs 250 crores in preparing for the games, while expenditure on foreign coaches has been around Rs 20 crores. The country will send an 81-member athlete team to London, which will be India's largest contingent ever at the games. With just three medals in the last 2008 Beijing games and just one in the 2004 Athens games, it will be unsurprising if the medal tally in London gets less than five for this country. No wonder, this country knows no other sport than kabaddi and cricket. But with four Manipuris in the individual events, India can hope for a better performance and more medals. Now, would you scream this small paragraph reeks of regionalism? I would respect any opinion you would form.
