Harish Kotian is at the Olympic stadium in London for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Games.
The ceremony begins at 2100 local time on Friday, July 27, which is 0130 hours India time Saturday.
The ceremony will take viewers through an exuberant journey from Britain's idyllic pastures to the grime of the Industrial Revolution, ending in a contemporary world dominated by popular culture.
The three-hour show, created by Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle, is expected to be watched by a crowd of 60,000 in the main stadium and a global audience of more than a billion.
As 16,000 athletes from 204 countries get ready to share the thrill of victory and despair of defeat over the next fortnight, you can chat with Harish about the gala event, the atmosphere in the stadium and much more.
