India's true daughter, our pride- Mary Kom- keeps making us proud. Our very own Olympic boxer and five-time world champion, she has come a long way from when she started boxing. She is the only Indian woman who qualified for the 2012 Olympics and brought back a bronze medal home. The best part about her? Even after being in an aggressive sport, she is one of the calmest people you'll ever witness. Even PM Modi couldn't resist appreciating the talent.
