Olympics 2016 came at a high price for Rio de Janeiro, an enchanting city of jarring inequality

Rio remains a city of jarring inequality, a muggy kettle of friction, yet among both nature and inhabitants with curves of enchanting sensuality. Rio’s State government is bankrupt. Public services - hospitals, universities, schools and the police - are in short supply. The unemployment rate is searing. The political elite lobbied for the Olympic Games, not Rio’s ordinary citizens. At $11.5 billion, Rio 2016 came at too high a price for the city. #India #Brazil #IOC #Usain Bolt #Abhinav Bindra #Olympics #Rio de Janeiro #Michael Phelps #International Olympic Committee #PV Sindhu #Eduardo Paes #Rio 2016 #Olympics 2016 #Thomas Bach #Michael Johnson #Sakshi Malik #Dipa Karmakar #Barra da Tijuca #Favelas #Rafaela Silva #Wayde Van Niekerk #Horto #Globo #Sergio Cabral #Rocinha #Sao Conrado

Vijay Goel at Rio Olympics 2016: Sir, please pack your bags and return home!

Much as we would like to give the Indian minister of state for youth and sports Vijay Goel benefit of doubt, the scenario is just too familiar to be overlooked #InMyOpinion #International Olympic Committee #Vijay Goel #Olympics 2016 #Rakesh Gupta #When in Rio #Sarah Peterson #entourages
