Dear readers don’t be surprise by reading the heading. Don’t you feel it’s time to recommend a Bharat Ratna to MC Mary Kom. I know everyone is happy with her achievement, we’re proud to have such an excellent athlete’s born in our home state (Manipur) and represent our country (India) to the whole nations.
Yet! No one talks about awarding Bharat Ratna even after she celebrated her gold medal in the women’s flyweight (48-51kg) final boxing match at the 17th Asian Games 2014.
MC Mary should not be compared just with women athletes. It is time to honor our women athletic if achievers like Sachin Tendulkar had also achieved a Bharat Ratna. Unlike cricket or hockey, which are played in just a few countries, as we all know boxing is a global game.
She is the one who competes in an individual sport and raise our National Flag into the world. So, it’s time to recommend a Bharat Ratna to MC Mary Kom. Doesn’t she deserve it?
Why nobody even whispered her name till today? Let equality rules a new India. Shall we show to the universe that the largest democracy in the world reflects that we don't biased against women athletes?
Most importantly, if the magnificent Mary is not award a Bharat Ratna, this can be a one of the proof that our country (India) is not give our female athletes the due attention and their achievements deserved recognition.
But the time to make amends has come. We should remember that Mary’s gold medal at Incheon today has catapulted her into the league of greatest Indians. It is time to recognize this rare Ratna of Bharat.
We Want Change! We want a Bharat Ratna for MC Mary Kom. She deserve it!
