"This song has fallen short of expectations. We had a expected a better anthem for the Games from a composer of Rahman`s status," Malhotra, also the vice-president of the Indian Olympic Association, told reporters.

"He has given some very good songs like `Maa Tujhe Salaam` but this song is not that impressive. We hope that the song is made better because there is still some time for the Games," he added.

Rahman sang it in front of a gathering which included Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, her Haryana counterpart Bhupinder Singh Hooda and CWG Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi yesterday.

"I feel honoured to get the opportunity to compose the theme song for the mega-event. It was not an easy task. I had started composing it six months ago and finished just last night," Rahman said after the launch.

The launch of the theme song had been delayed after the Group of Ministers overseeing the quadrennial sporting extravaganza asked Rahman to change it a little bit.
