Games Organizing Committee
Every Games has a high-powered organizing committee and hundreds of subcommittees. This is one area that we Malaysians are good at. We have our Jawatankuasas – thousands of them. We are masters at forming Jawatankuasa. If London 2012 had 300 subcommittees, we will have at least 3000. We will have a committee to decide the size of pisang goreng to be served at the opening ceremony. We will have a committee to determine the colour of the hockey umpire’s underwear. We will have a committee to decide whether to invite Israel or not (although we really don’t have a choice here). We will have a committee to determine if beach volleyball is haram or otherwise. Heck, we will even have a committee to decide which other committee to blame in case something goes wrong.
My prediction : We will have 1 main organizing committee, 32 sub-committees, 278 sub-sub committees and 3162 sub-sub-sub committees. It is very likely that the Bangladeshi worker who cleans the committee meeting rooms will make some of the most important decisions...
