New Delhi's Commonwealth Games heading for disaster?
With only 43 days to go before the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in India, host city New Delhi seems far from ready. Organisers are optimistic, but behind-schedule construction work and crippling corruption make it difficult for locals to share that optimism. RNW's Dheera Sujan is in New Delhi and she thinks it's going to be very difficult for the city to be ready in time.

Ex-pop star to run for Haitian presidency
Haitian rapper/singer/producer Wyclef Jean has launched his bid for the presidency of Haiti. He says he can bring stability to one of the world's poorest countries and rebuild it - but not everyone agrees. We asked Haiti expert Amelie Gauhtier whether it's strange for a pop star to run for president.

Community life in New Delhi is really quite alarming and requires special attentionfrom the us government. At the very least, the Government could provide assistance tothe citizens who do not necessarily yet have a decent place to reside. Tune Up Kent
