India is definitely improving if we see its last performance at Asian Games.

I agree that they were held in India so we had an advantage but still we had to perform.

Lets first analyse the success factors of Asian games.It will help us to reach to a consensus about the actual solutions for improving our medal tally in next Olympics.

Also fear in the mids of parents on what their child will do if they do not succeed in sports prevents them from allowing their children to pursue sports as a career.

it's corruption and filthy politics which is hampering the progress in every sector. coaches are accused of sexual harassment, in facilitation ceremonies boxer like vijender singh is denied award money and ordered to submit proof that he had won medal in asian games!! fatso like abhay chautala, psychos like M.S.Gill are heading various sport authorities. in such a scenario one should not expect any medal. why will one go for such a sport. in india sports means just cricket. entire system must be revamped but for that india must be pulled out of vortex of corruption and that's not going to happen easily.

since India is becomming more and more open to other sports our chances to win medals are also increasing. Also our performance in the ASIAN games was worth noting. Further as regards the mindsets of the parents it is not far when they will start accepting that sports has brighter outlook

India has lack of infra.. people are focused on only one sport cricket.. plus there is a career in only cricket where there are sponsors, media etc. hence it affects all sports including the olympics
