Such was the aura of 'Magnificent' Mary Kom that even her opponent, Mala Rai of Nepal, showed no regret in the loss and was seen sporting a broad smile hugging the Indian boxing idol in excitement after the defeat.
Mary Kom had opted out of the Asian Championships last month in order to prepare for the World Championships as the event will serve as good preparatory ground for Olympic qualification."I have been preparing well for 51kg category," she said.
Bollywood has shown some real women power onscreen in the form of women-centric films. Films like Nargis' Mother India, Shabana Azmi's Mirch Masala, Jai Gangaajal and Mary Kom starring Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan's Kahaani should be on your watch list today as we celebrate Womens' Day.
