On air: Will India struggle to thrive unless it changes its work culture?

Ros Atkins Ros Atkins | 14:40 UK time, Thursday, 23 September 2010

This topic was discussed on World Have Your Say on 23 September 2010. Listen to the programme.

Just a little to add to what Ben posted about below. It's fair to say that a lot of emails we've received about Delhi's preparations could be placed into two schools of thought. And they are...

1) India's work culture is flawed and the problems in Delhi are symptomatic of that. If the culture doesn't change, it'll never be able to deliver as South Africa and China did when they had their moments in the spotlight.

2) This is how India works, but don't worry Delhi will be ready, if at the last minute. Developed countries don't understand that we get things done in a different way to them.

Which do you side with?
