Raised from a destitute family, facing all challenges despite being married and having children, nothing has stopped her from achieving her unconventional goal of being a boxing champion. For a woman to whom luxury was a farfetched thing, she has risen from a poor life to being known internationally for her grit and mettle as a boxer.
As a woman, she faced the stereotypical challenge of being discouraged of choosing a profession for the fear that she will not get married with bruises on her face.Being the first Indian woman to win a medal in Olympics is stupendously and potently inspiring. It validates her invincible grit to achieve what seemed to have been impossible given her situation.
After having won bronze medal in the Olympics held in London in the year 2012, and a world champion 5 times, it is pleasing to know that she has a soft heart. She apologizes her opponents if she happens to injure them during the championship. This shows how fairly she treats competition with a beautiful heart and a tough mind.
