We have already discussed this on Praja long time ago about how other cities in India should shape up for sporting  mega events. Here is a media published article on Bengaluru being a strong candidate for the next Asian games (2019)

India is a vast and diverse country, and equity considerations demand that the benefits of a global event be shared by different states.
 
China seems to be excelling itself in the conduct of international games. The spectacular opening ceremony of the Asian Games in Guangzhou, the third largest city in China, has been rated better than even that of the Beijing Olympics held two years ago.

The purpose of this article is not to make any comparison with the Commonwealth Games held earlier in Delhi but to raise an entirely different issue about the venue of the games. India has till now hosted two Asian and one Commonwealth games and all of them in Delhi. The question is whether all such events should be held in the national capital. There is no doubt that as of now, Delhi is the best equipped city in the country to host such international events. It has the necessary infrastructure in terms of stadia, accommodation and other facilities. No wonder, it is eyeing the prospect of bidding for Olympics at a future date.
