The London Olympics 2012 kicked off to a glittering start. The opening ceremony was brilliant.
The event showcased the talents, culture and customs of the Hosting Nation, and thereafter comes the festivities, glamour, glitz and as expected the fireworks.
A delightful conceptualization by Danny Boyle, who succeeded in projecting the Britain of yesteryear, as well as the present and future. The carrying of the Olympic torch through the river under the London bridge was a spectacular concept. The march past by all the Nations was spectacular and the entry of Indians just made me feel that much more proud. The lighting of the cauldron which consisting of 204 petals each depicting the participating Nations was finally lit by seven young athletes.
A well planned, thought out event, not too much of fanfare but just enough to keep the viewer spellbound.
All the best to the Indian sports persons. May they perform well, stress free, and up to their full potential.
