Apurvi Chandela finishes fifth in 10m air rifle final. Bows out. Not a good performance, was a medal contender.

India lose to Japan in womens team even badminton.

Already we can see the level of competition at Commonwealth and Asiad, there is a vast difference.

India is winning medals at the rate of two or three every day. It reminds me of Indian family planning slogan of 1960s- Do ya teen bas (only two or three and no more ? ) :)

Like in Commonwealth games, Indians are optimising their efforts here as well-winning minimum number of medals expending less energy but making sure that these medals help them remain somewhere near the upper half of the medal table.
