Olympic Games After 90 minutes of unbearable drama and concerted passion at the iconic Maracana stadium Neymar delivered salvation from the penalty spot in the Olympic football final With the gold

“The legacy of the Olympic Games is intangible” explains Pedro Trengrouse a professor at the Getulio Vargas Foundation who witnessed Brazil’s football coronation “We marveled at the sporting exploits The memories are unforgettable” “The gold medal in football was of symbolic importance to Brazil” says Emerson de Souza the president of the residents association of Horto a tight-knit community of 620 families in behind Rio’s lush Jardim Botanico He watched the final on TV at home "Perhaps the win of Rafaela Silva was the most touching moment of the Olympic Games because of the journey that she made” reflects De Souza “She came from the City of God and dedicated her life to judo It shows that small communities and favelas have enormous potential” Horto a tropical paradise of sprawling fauna and flora in the heart of Carioca-land is one of those marginalised coteries sandwiched between the upscale neighborhoods of Gavea and Lagoa in Rio’s highbrow Zona Sul For 200 years families descendant from slaves have been employees at the adjacent botanical garden In Rio and Brazil at large Horto is among the most valuable and prized land In the nearby Jardim Botanico neighborhood the price per square meter was $3997 in 2016 according to real estate index FipeZap De Souza and his residents became a target of the pre-Olympic speculative real estate boom with the botanical garden

one of survival a constant unequal tussle with real estate developers They have remained the one significant community under threat after the Olympic Games Last November Rio’s notorious Military Police evicted Marcelo de Souza and his family from their home They were offered neither alternative housing nor monetary compensation More eviction notices have been issued “There is no legal ground for eviction” argues Theresa Williamson the executive director of Catalytic Communities “Horto is on federal land so it doesn’t matter what the current mayor [Marcelo Crivella] thinks but there are historic links between right-wing militaristic governments like Temers and Globo” “This is the daily reality” laments De Souza “They applied a lot of make-up during the Olympic Games to show a city that functioned Which legacy of the Olympic Games The government never assumed its social responsibility Where was the investment in creches education and in culture” Perhaps the term legacy a favorite in the lofty lexicon of bid books is not applicable in the Olympic context That self-proclaimed justification that comes with the modern Olympic Games has too often been absent with one notable exception — Barcelona 1992 was kaleidoscopic That was supposedly a model edition of the Olympic Games “In the aftermath of the Olympics Barcelona went from a backward rustbelt Mediterranean port that had had barely any notice on it since the Civil War to suddenly one of the most desirable tourist and conference locations in the world to the point today where the debate in Barcelona is how can we tone down the tourist influx and diversify in other areas” highlights David Goldblatt renowned sports writer and sociologist In Barcelona the Olympic Games were the catalyst for redevelopment and regeneration after a careful process of systematic and sophisticated urban planning with a 10 billion investment and citywide street beautification The city of Gaudi Miro and Picasso was transformed into a modern metropolis “Those Olympic Games looked fantastic on TV in a way that no other Olympics has done” adds Goldblatt “It got an extraordinary global response” No other host city has repeated Barcelona’s success Neither did Rio The city Brazil’s post card showed off Copacabana’s curvy shapes and its natural splendor but ultimately Rio hosted the Olympic Games in impossible conditions at a time of a severe economic downturn fiscal chaos and a constitutional crisis At a cost of $115 billion the macro-fiscal impact of the sporting extravaganza remained limited An aerial view shows the Velodrome which had its roof partially burnt after a fire at the Olympic park which was used for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Reuters “Without the Olympic Games the federal government wouldn’t have invested so much money in Rio de Janeiro” explains Trengrouse “The Games deferred the crisis They were a huge investment but in reality it’s not more than 1 percent of Brazil’s GDP” The Olympic Games were an accelerator for the current Carioca tragedy not the catalyst Today Rio is a vague purgatory a dystopian sprawling urban monstrosity The state of Rio de Janeiro is bankrupt with a deficit of $629 billion; the municipality is struggling along Near-shuttered universities failing hospitals and a corrupt police force have plodded on “Since November 2016 my salary has been delayed” admits Mauricio Santoro a professor at Department of International Relations of UERJ Rio de Janeiro State University “It started with a small delay of two weeks but has escalated to four months My personal finances are robust but there are 200000 civil servants and pensioners who suffer from the delays They struggle to pay basic expenses like rent They suffer from health problems depression or other complications due to their economic problems Colleagues have lost their homes and were forced to move to shelters for the homeless It is unprecedented it didn’t even happen during the period of the hyperinflation in the 1980-1990s” The Olympic Games were a quick fix They didn’t bring prosperity but abject dysfunction Eight thousand five hundred troops have been deployed to curb the rising crime and violence in the Carioca capital The mini-inferno at the Olympic velodrome was an apt metaphor for a city in flames In 2017 more than 480 citizens and 90 police officers have been killed in Rio Stray bullets are frequent again “It’s Sarajevo” bemoans Alexandre Gontijo a famed Brazilian sports journalist “The police have lost control of the city but Rio has no economy — thats the problem” explains Henrik Brandao the Latin America correspondent for Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter “This is not a capitalistic city of offer and demand How do you survive Cargo at Avenida Brasil is getting looted That’s a reason for the military to be here major companies are losing money It is a very hard legacy Cariocas got a metro a boulevard and a museum The politicians took everything else” When Rio was awarded the Olympic Games in 2007 the future looked bright again The city and the country were sold a beautiful dream That year Rio hosted the Pan-American Games a first step in its resurrection ever since Brasilia dethroned the city as Brazil’s capital in 1961 The economy picked up with the oil boom and the local regional and federal authorities worked closely together Rio governor Sergio Cabral led the marvelous city forward on a path of self-fulfillment In 2017 it all proved to be a chimera Rio is broke failing to meet its basic obligations The old staple of corruption made the exploitation of oil and the staging of mega-sporting events a toxic endeavor The Car Wash investigation exposed a gigantic network of corruption and kickbacks between real estate conglomerates and politicians Brazil’s classic and enduring model of crony corruption Cabral is in jail The World Cup and the Olympic Games were sports’ Lavo Jato a neoliberal heist with public money “The Olympic Games were managed the way everything is in Brazil” explains Trengouse “Everything related to public finance has corruption in Brazil It’s unfortunately the modus operandi The Olympic Games come with Agenda 2020 today which essentially means ‘Let’s use what exists’ Why couldn’t this happen in Rio Everything had been in place with the Pan-American Games” The Olympic Games did fulfill the agenda of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) They generated a revenue of $56 billion They delivered and enhanced the power of sports Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps were mesmerising the ultimate Olympians transmitting deep unadulterated joy with their celestial achievements The Olympic Games once more offered top performance competitive sports in fabulously constructed stadia Who can forget Simone Biles’ accomplishments in the gymnasium Fiji’s glorious gold in the Rugby Sevens and South African Wayde van Niekerk’s 400-metres triumph “For all its cosmopolitan core that’s very important for the Olympics: it’s the teary moment while the national anthem plays and the gold medal is awarded that is pulling in ratings” says Goldblatt “High-level sports are an incredible form of cultural performance and interaction” By IOC acclaim the Rio Olympic Games were the best ever — that is until the next staging in Tokyo which has vowed to not repeat Rio’s mistakes That may be the silver lining: Rio’s true legacy is that the Olympic Games must be delivered on more equitable and sustainable terms in the future The IOC hasn’t heeded the message yet: the 2024 and 2028 awards of the Olympic Games to Paris and Los Angeles respectively were dictated by considerations about the market place and broadcasting; their readiness to stage the Olympic Games was but coincidental Back in Rio Cariocas are disenfranchised and angry: their city and country remain a dream in which the future never seems to arrive “The vast majority of Brazilians have been living like refugees in their own country without constitutional rights” says de Souza “Brazil is a young country it will get better” “For too long we have been delaying the big reforms that our country must undertake the need to reform our terrible political system to improve our crumbling infrastructure to have good public policies in education and health. we have a long way to go until we meet with the future” adds Santoro France Russia discuss Syria sidestep differences on chemical weapons | Reuters World Reuters Jul 07 2017 02:32:53 IST Comment 0 Tweet This story has not been edited

31 residents’ and activists’ organisations coming together to protest against plans for elevated Metro lines The groups which have formed an umbrella organisation titled Apna Mumbai Abhiyan on Thursday demanded that all Metro lines within the city be constructed underground like the proposed Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro They activists said elevated Metro lines in congested areas especially the suburbs will permanently damage the quality of life and environment and will cause physical and visual clutter Nitin Killawala an architect and activist said “There was absolutely no study done before deciding on an elevated route and not an underground one There wasn’t any public consultation or interaction either It is a myth that elevated Metro lines are cheaper There are so many hurdles in constructing elevated corridors in Mumbai as seen in the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro that it ultimately leads to cost escalation” Share This Article Related Article Except for the 335-km Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro the BJP-led state government has decided to construct all other corridors in the city as elevated Metro lines Two of these the 165-km Dahisar East-Andheri East Metro and 185-km Dahisar-DN Nagar Metro are already at an advance stage with contracts having been formalised for the former and in process for the latter Besides the two Metro lines the Fadnavis-led Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has approved plans for an elevated 236-km DN Nagar-Mankhurd Metro while detailed project reports are in the works for an elevated Thane-Wadala-Kasarvadavali Metro For the Colaba-Bandra-Seepz line the state stuck to the original plan of constructing it underground as the project was already under tendering when the BJP government took over However it decided to overturn the previous government’s decision of constructing the Metro routes from Dahisar to Mankhurd via Bandra as underground corridors a decision that the Congress-NCP government had taken after opposition to plans for an elevated route Activist Hansel D’Souza said the government should consider elevated Metro lines only in areas outside Mumbai in the larger Mumbai Metropolitan Region which are not very congested and hence have space to build He said by deciding to construct the Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro underground and other lines elevated the government is applying an unequal yardstick for people living in the suburbs “We are being discriminated against as second-level citizens” he said Quoting a report from the Indian Institute of Technology activists from Apna Mumbai Abhiyan also said that the maintenance cost of elevated corridors will be higher than underground lines As per the report they said maintenance of an underground Metro will cost Rs 4 crore by 2021 and Rs 56 crore by 2031 as against Rs 59 crore and Rs 960 crore by 2021 and 2031 respectively for an elevated line For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian
