Shera, the official mascot for the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010, welcomed my friends, other spectators and me to the Dhyanchand National Stadium on Saturday, 9 October 2010.
Some supporters of India had the tri-colour painted on their face, while others wore the blue jersey, with the flag proudly adorning their chest.
Water sprinklers readied the field for the matches.
Indian women's team played a fantastic match against South Africa and won the game 3-1. Here is the Indian women's team taking the winner's lap.
Soon it was time for the Indian men to thrash the Scottish team, and we had a wonderful time cheering for the brilliant hockey players who won the game 4-0.
With smiles on our faces with the double win, we bid adieu to Shera :-)
