7.Visionary businessman can run it diligently.
Many more point can be suggested.
Ask government to form a committee and give us the charge.

Mary Kom qualifies for London Olympics

Five-time world champion MC Mary Com (51kg) on Friday added another feather to her already crowded cap by becoming the only Indian woman boxer to qualify for the London Olympics despite being on the sidelines after losing in the quarterfinals of the World Championships.  The five-time world champion had failed to make it past the quarter-finals of the World Champions here on Wednesday when she lost to world No.2 Nicola Adams, but Adams' victory over Russia's world champion Yelena Savelyeva in the semis has ensured Mary Kom's progression to the prestigious event.

However, Kavita (+81kg) was the lone Indian woman boxer to clinch a medal at the event after she settled for a bronze in the semifinal against Kazakhstan's Yuldus Mamatkulova.  Women's boxing will make its Olympic debut in three weight categories in London - 51kg, 60kg and 75kg.  Asia has two slots in the 51kg division and Mary Kom has filled the secon…
