quicko: commonwealth games

Perhaps I should have mentioned this sooner as they're nearly over now, but the Commonwealth Games are currently going on.  They're right along the lines of the Olympics, only with only the Commonwealth countries (and their friends? friends of friends? anyone England hasn't gone to war with?  not exactly sure, but we never get an invite).

Incidentally, have I mentioned that what we refer to as the Revolutionary War the Commonwealth countries (including Australia) refer to as The American War of Independence?  Now I have.  Possibly twice.

We probably refer to it as the AWoI to avoid confusion with the French Revolution and the British civil war.

Commonwealth Games are played between the Commonwealth of nations i.e the nations which were under the British Empire. They are being held in India. However, Should India celebrate the Commonwealth Success?
