Bharat Ratna for Mary Kom

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

In a stadium full of people, no sound is heard as everyone is holding their breath. All you can hear is your heart and all you can see is hope; because you are the only one who has to cope.

Sweat pours down your face and is wiped just before it enters your eyes.
Where the atmosphere is tense and the opponent staring you right in the eye, your instinct is the only thing that will get you by.

Not many people are able to achieve a heart of gold and the strength of stone; you are the only one that is the insatiable storm.

Mary Kom.

Chungnejiang Mary Kom Hmangte is a six-time world champion and Olympic bronze medalist. She has scripted history by becoming the first female boxer to claim six gold medals at the world championships.

Besides being an active and top-level boxer, the 35-year-old is a sitting Rajya Sabha MP with an unquestionable attendance, a government observer for boxing in the country and a  mother to her three sons.

Mary Kom is an epitome of indomitable spirit who is the face of women's boxing not just in India but all over the world, earning the nickname 'Magnificent Mary' from the International Boxing Association(AIBA) in 2010.

Juggling so many roles is an arduous task. However, just like Helen Keller says: "Optimism is a faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without being strong and confident' 

The pace of her life is sometimes hard to keep up, with constant traveling and workload but throwing in the towel is not an option for her.

This perseverance and long haul has brought her to her present stature. Even with her opponents quivering in fear of the iron punches, she sticks to the ground because 'Every medal is a story of struggle', says the indomitable MC Mary Kom.

It is time we hail her for all her contributions to our nation and award her the most awaited award of the year - 'Bharat Ratna’ for no one deserves it better.
