Although I observed very keenly the proceedings leading to the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in October 2010, I was unable to attend or watch the Opening Ceremony of the event as I happened to be travelling by train at the very precise time when the event unfolded. This was probably the time when I started following news and especially sports news and the events of significance. And so, there wasn't any doubt that I would be following the events leading up to the London 2012 Olympics quite keenly. For instance, watching the Opening Ceremony LIVE on television was not going to be an opportunity that I would miss this time.

And I personally love this picture. Looks as if it is straight out of a video game! Source: Internet
A quick Google search later, I had set my alarm at 1 AM, 28th of July 2012, to remind me to switch on the TV and see my first ever LIVE Opening Ceremony for an Olympic Game. I sat on the bean bag, laptop on my left downloading the episodes of Prison Break and the remote in my right hand switching through all the sports channels. Oh well, this is India. Why am I not looking for Doordarshan?
