原文标题：Indian contingent fumes at presence of mystery woman in red
LONDON: The Indian contingent is furious over a strange trespass bang in the middle of their official march in Friday's opening ceremony.
Any lingering disappointment about a lack of camera spotlight on the nation's athletes was overshadowed by the mystery of a lady in red and blue who walked alongside flag bearer Sushil Kumar.
The woman of unknown origin brazenly gate crashed the party, raising security concerns and adding to the anger over India's blink-and-miss appearance on global TV screens.
The Indian contingent - around 40 athletes and 11 officials in all - marched into the stadium with the men in yellow Rajasthani turbans, blue blazers and white trousers and the women in yellow sarees and blue blazers. Sticking out in the small contingent was a beaming young woman, seemingly Indian or of Indian origin, in a red track top, blue pants and sneakers. There she was, smiling at the cameras, even waving, soaking in the moment taking and an evening stroll as it were.
Inexplicably, the Indian camp is clueless about the trespasser's identity. "She had no business being there. It was a clear case of intrusion," said the acting chef-demission, Brig P K M Raja. "We are taking up the issue with the organizers. We don't know who she is and why she was allowed to walk in."
The Indians suspect a security breach and have decided to take up the matter with the London Olympic Games Organizing Committee (LOCOG).
"It is a shame that she was walking with our athletes," said Raja.
"We checked in together at various points from the Village. It was a 2km walk. When we were entering the stadium, a member of the organizing committee or some security guy asked to be in front of us. We thought the woman was part of LOCOG. When we entered the stadium, the woman who was walking between us and the contingent ahead of us, the Independent Olympic Athletes, suddenly came back and started walking next to Sushil Kumar, our flag-bearer. She just hogged the limelight. The march past is for the athletes and officials attached to the contingent. We are totally surprised by the manner in which she joined the delegation and kept walking inside the stadium," he said.
Asked whether the woman was Indian, he said he could not say. "She could be Asian, Latin American, I don't know."
Did he think it was a security breach? "I can't say that as she was in a sanitized zone but this was bizarre. We will ask for an apology. She embarrassed us in front of the world... the Indian contingent was shown for just 10 seconds, and to think this lady hogged all the limelight."
Surely, the last has not been heard on this.

It is surely Kalmadi in disguise, after the Delhi high court ruling that he should NOT go neat the Olympics opening ceremony as it would be an embarrassment to India. He put on the red track top, two or three mangoes, painted himself white. Not sure about the beard though.

Fuming (vs Producing Results) 1 hr ago
Indian contingent... fuming. Other countries... producing results. Medal count so far = China 6, Italy 5, United States 5. Many more medals upcoming for these nations. Anyway, good luck Indians, despite lack of leadership, strategy, vision, and honesty (officials). In the next Olympics (2016), just send the sportspersons and skip the officials.

Why no one in the Indian contingent noticed this girl in the beginning. If they knew that she was not a member of Indian team, why the so called officials taking part could not take any action? I hope she is not the South American girl friend of Rahul Gandhi!

What is the big fuss , we Indians are very cooperative in allowing outsiders to enter our house & country , like terrorist entering our country very smoothly . Not even our own athletes question her, all the athletes are having their pass & ID you can see she doesn't have one . As said Indian men looking at white skin get carried away , or we are always afraid of ministers kin , so some of our athletes must have thought she must be the relative of some one in Delhi , better keep quiet or we will only be a spectator in the games , our sports body is very strong and they can ruin our carrier . We were ruled by British first , now by our good for nothing ministers ,

This is a serious issue. This could be a plan by the Brits who try every possible opportunities to damage India's image. I remember during CWG Delhi, British media were covering less on sports but more on slums in India. Having said that, I am angry of the fact that this was not noticed by Indian officials then. Our lack of sincerity and carelessness have cost us successive invasion of foreigners who not only managed to rule us , but also enslaved us. And yet we have not learnt any lessions. Politicians at the helm of affairs or bureaucrats are disaster. No wonder our country is in such a mess.

If the athletes wanted some limelight, then they should get some by performing at the Olympic games not by just walking 2 km! And if they were wondering as to who she was and why she was walking with them, they could have asked her once the walk was over, yet no one said a word until she disappeared apparently! Doing what Indians are known for doing best, creating drama!
