Adjectives like strength, vigour, courage have always been the attributes to describe men, and the women have been soft, kind, delicate and poised ones. But, while in the 21st Century the World is developing, there’s no such adjective that can discriminate a man or woman, explaining their attributes. A woman can also be strong, courageous and robust.
Thus to break the stereotypical norms of the patriarchal society, ANKIT TMT Bars, who are one of the leaders in the industry with their strength of steel, is introducing MC Mary Kom, who is one o the epitomes of strength, as their brand ambassador.
Born as Hmangte Chungneijang Mary Kom also known as “Magnificient Mary” she has won numerous awards at the World Boxing Championships and Asian Cups. Also awarded honorary awards like Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan etc.
When asked what does she think about the Indian Goverment providing aid for thriving young athletes, she states that “When I was young I had a lot less compared to what athletes nowadays have been provided.”
She continues and says that “What we lack nowadays is passionate and focused athletes and the infastructure or equipments are not the reason, there is some other hurdle we’re yet to uncover.”
At 36, Mary Kom is still energetic and passionate about her work and is currently preparing herself for the qualufication rounds for the 2020 Olympic games.
