Trivia

Shera, the official mascot for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, is an anthropomorphised tiger. His name has been derived the Hindi word for Lion - "Sher". In colloquial lanugage, Sher is used for both lion and tiger. The mascot represents the modern Indian, proud of his nation's ancient heritage and a fierce competitor but with integrity and honesty.
