    As the Olympic torch goes on its way around the world, there's been huge controversy related to its sojourn in India. The omission of a pantheon of eminent sportspersons & Olympians, of the calibre of PT Usha, Prakash Padukone, besides so many other names, especially hockey medallists, has definitely not gone down well with several Olympians. When you consider that Aamir Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Rani Mukherjee and Vivek Oberoi are going to be carrying the torch during different portions of the race, it becomes plainly obvious why we fail at the Olympics so often. Those who run the sports authorities don't care for the athletes, the infrastructure is totally lacking and drug abuse isn't even on the radar of the officials. How do you expect us to get medals?
