CWG tableau to sweep people off their feet on Republic Day

Mesmerising music by Javed Akhtar and Shankar Ehsaan Loy with the tableau Shera, the mascot for this year's Commonwealth Games will be the star attraction of the Republic Day Parade.

The Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi 'Shera' tableau has been prepared by the best craftsmen sought by the Sports Ministry.

Top athletes of the country led by Zafar Iqbal, captain of the World Cup Hockey Squad and other great athletes like Sushil Kumar and PT Usha will take podium position atop the Shera tableau.

The vibrant colour palette of the Games has lent a splendid look to the Shera tableau which stands tall in its natural surroundings. Shera that depicts the fragile environment he lives in and the responsibility towards protecting the delicate ecological balance. Then there is iconic Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium's spectacular structure and it's inside. The globe aptly positioned in the middle of the stadium is also made up of recycled paper.

The tableau emphasises on the various aspects of Green Games. It has been made of all recycled eco-friendly material. The wood, which has been used in the structure is chip board and MDF Board which is again eco friendly recycled material.

The magnificent colour palette of the Games will be seen in the tableau as well. Red, yellow and blue are the colours symbolising the Commonwealth Games and purple, pink and green are the colours from the Indian palette. All the colours will be displayed in an impressive pattern in the tableau. The LED screens on either sides of the tableau will display the film combining major sporting events, their medal winners and the snapshots in the various Games.

Other all time great athletes who are likely to be seen on the Shera tableau will include K Malleswari, Zafar Iqbal, Milkha Singh, Khazan Singh, Samresh Juang, Gopichand Pullela, and Ajit Pal Singh.
