Shera-The Commonwealth Games Mascot

October 5th, 2010 by James

Shera - The Commonwealth Games MascotThe upcoming edition of Commonwealth Games will be held in New Delhi, India, from October 3 to 14. The most visible face of XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi is Shera, mascot of the games.

The name “Shera” comes from the Hindi word “Sher”, which means tiger. The CWG mascot aims to portray an image of a global citizen who is proud of his national heritage but with honesty and integrity. The “large-hearted gentleman” has a habit of making friends and encourages all to ‘come out and play.’ Shera is also a symbol of the fragile environment he lives in and depicts our responsibility towards the protection of his ecosystem.

The tiger is associated with Goddess Durga, the vanquisher of evil, according to the Indian mythology. Tiger is her powerful vehicle, especially during combats, and played an all-important role in the battle against a dreaded demon, Mahishasur.

The presence of Shera is expected to add some stars to the much-awaited Commonwealth games, which are held after every four years. The last Commonwealth games were held in Melbourne, Australia from 15 – 26 March, 2006 and the next games will be held in Glasgow, Scotland from 23 July – 3 August, 2014.
