That's true of the athletics and swimming but they have good chances in most other sports. 10 golds already so second to the Aussies in the medal table.
In general you're right though. Most locals can't afford the tickets (although they are dirt cheap by our standards). It's a big country as well so, realistically, there aren't going to many people travelling from southern India to watch.
I'd actually be interested to know what percentage of India's population know the games are on.
