Cycling, football, hockey, squash, volleyball were among 23 sport disciplines of which 16 were held in Guwahati and 7 in Shillong. The hosting of the major international sporting event is part of the government's efforts to develop India's northeast region. The two hosting cities Guwahati and Shillong showcased the culture and heritage of northeast India. The mega sports extravaganza will help boost the state's tourism besides pushing infrastructural growth. The objective of decentralizing sports to centres outside the metros is laudable and the effort will boost economic growth and bring prosperity to the region, making India a global destination for sports.
