A musical rap for CWG

Journo's song about Games' ills a big hit online

As if the media was not making enough noise about the inefficiencies of the Organising Committee for the Commonwealth Games, a journalist has come up with a peppy rap number detailing the ills marring the mega sporting event.

'Dhikkar Hai' is composed and co-written by Adarsh Rathor who works with a news channel. This is Rathor's first experiment with a Hindi song, as he has been writing poetry in local Himachali dialect.

His friend helped him to write the song for Commonwealth Games, eliciting the corruption around the sporting event as well as the shame it has brought to India. The song also mentions Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi.

The song has been uploaded on file sharing website and so far close to 1,000 people has downloaded it. The song is getting very popular on Facebook and Aadarsh is getting appreciative remarks and kudos for his work.
