  • India has expressed interest to host the 2032 Summer Olympic Games.
  • India must consider several issues if it wishes to host the Games:
  • India must leave a mark at the 2020 Olympic Games.
  • India should host multisport events to prove its prowess.
  • It should ensure high investment from the private sector.
  • India should ensure clean and safe facilities for the athletes.
  • India should identify locations for hosting the games early on.
  • It is only when we view the Games as a long-term development enabler that it can be made a sustainable proposition.
