The 2008 Olympics began in Beijing, the capital of the PeopleRepublic of China. The opening ceremony was so grand that it is hailed as one of the best sport festive of the world. Personally I have not seen such a grandeur opening ceremony for any event in the world. The events in the opening ceremony were rich in the Chinese culture and there is no words to explain about the fireworks which lightened the whole dark sky of the Beijing in the night. Traditionally the Olympic torch was lit which will not extinguished till the closing ceremony of the games. Now the whole world is waiting to see what is going to happen the Olympics. The Indian contingent was lead by Rajavardhan Singh Rathore. Medals are expected in shooting, tennis and boxing. Lots of hopes are there for Indian express- Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi. India is hoping to get a gold medal at least this. With fingers crossed I am looking forward for the Olympics.
