Mary Kom, we are proud of you!

Mary Kom, our own ‘Sports Supermom’ from Manipur, having risen from the most humble of beginnings, has won a bronze for her country, giving the highest medal tally for India in the Olympics.  On this momentous occasion, I am posting an updated one-to-one interview I was privileged to have with her,  last year.

  1. She is indeed a great person and an inspiration to one and all. Her achievement is no mean feat and it must have been a great experience for you to have talked and interviewed her long before that. 🙂 And it is indeed my privilege that I get to read this. 🙂

    1. No, I interviewed her a year before she won the Olympic medal, but AFTER she won so many other world championships. She was already a superstar, only not many had heard of her 😦

  3. Ooooh! That is something that we could now call “Awesome Sauce!”

    I really think we ought to award her husband with the “Super-Husband” title too! He’s apparently been very supportive throughout her ordeal! 🙂 heart warming to read about them!

  4. i hope after looking at the performance of Mary Kom and Sania Nehwal in Olympics, people back in India will realize that we need more n more girls in the society and will think twice before doing all those nonsense they do to have a male child…..

    thanks for sharing this…:)

    1. It is indeed, Dr.Vikram. She has delivered more than the others in terms of the money and publicity invested in her compared to the others.

  9. More power to Mary Kom 🙂 The woman who has made possible media to go gaga over something else other than cricket. I was so happy to read a feature on her in yesterday’s paper “Know more about Mary” which you rarely see.

    1. Now you will see many more articles on her, don’t you worry 🙂 I am praying she brings a gold to the country — the first by a woman at the Olympics. IF not she, no one else deserves it more.
