Check out the slider to know the six life lessons that
the movie Mary Kom teaches...
‘Fight Like A Girl’ Is The Way To Go!
In a fight of strength and muscle, the weaker fighters have
conventionally been told that they ‘fight like a girl'. The
reference is to a popular belief that women cannot put up a tough
fight because they are weak. Mary Kom shuts down such arguments
with an unarguably firm conviction.
Strong Women Can Be Stunning Too!
It may be hard to believe that the hardcore woman, who rules
every fight she gets into, can also make your heat skip a beat with
her beauty, but Mary Kom can help you believe it. The woman drills
fear into hearts of the viewers while she's fighting in the ring.
Yet somehow, Mary Kom as a white veiled bride is sure to make your
heart skip a beat.
You Haven’t Lost Till You Quit Trying
The film's music itself is enough to make you pick yourself up
after a fall and push harder than you did before. One of the
greatest life lessons we learn from Mary Kom is that winning isn't
just about scoring the most points; it is also about getting up and
Indian women battle stereotypes on a daily basis. It is said
that women can only rise up to the limiting glass ceiling, and
sadly, most women find it difficult to break through. But that
hasn't discouraged Mary Kom from making a mark in a male dominated
field. Mary Kom breaks barriers on many levels.
Obstacles Cannot Stop The Determined
Fighting off social norms is no easy task, and Mary has emerged
through multiple restrictive social norms as well as disfavouring
political conditions. Her story only proves that no obstacle can
hinder uncompromising determination.
Perseverance Always Pays Off
Among the reasons behind Mary Kom's incredible achievement is
the fact that she gave it everything she had. We've seen times when
Mary is pulled down by situations and commitments, but then she
rises above it all. Mary Kom trained and brought back every last
ounce of the spirit and physique she had as a world champion, only
to immortalize her name in the books of history.
