It put a lot of things in perspective. The fact that I was able to do it for such a long time should actually tell you that I found a way.

Did you see it? out of that blackness, a non-profit organisation that supports a number of India’s Olympic athletes," Shimizu said.” She signed up for taekwando and kung fu training and even recalled winning gold in an age-group competition. A couple of years later one of her coaches took them to a boxing camp at the Sports Authority of India training centre in Imphal It was not love at first sight “The first time I watched boxing I got very scared These boys were fighting in the ring and one of them was wearing red headgear The red colour had mixed with the sweat I thought he was bleeding” A week later Sarita went back and gave boxing another chance The second impression was much better than the first “I enjoyed the fighting The running and training hard appealed to me” She was 15 years old Unlike most Indian families Sarita’s mother supported her career choice from the get-go “The good thing about Manipur is that they never try and stop daughters from doing what they want to do Nobody says don’t do this or don’t try that” Sticking with boxing was the hard part though Sarita was still a teenager and finding the money to fight was a constant source of worry “Sometimes I would have no money for one or two months I couldn’t tell anyone at home because I knew mom would do whatever she could to try and help me and life was already tough for her” She would resort to odd jobs sometimes with the help of her friends and pool the money to pay her way Results followed quickly At the 2001 National Games Sarita won gold in her weight category She also qualified for the first Asian Women’s Boxing Championship in the flyweight category the same year and made it all the way to the final before losing The silver medal was her first taste of international success in the ring and it brought Sarita some measure of fame “After I came home a lot of people came to greet me That motivated me even more” she says Two years later she was the best boxer in Asia at her weight winning gold in Hisar and repeating the feat in 2005 But while boxing success came thick and fast that government job remained elusive So Sarita came to the reluctant conclusion that the 2005 World Championships would be glory’s last shot If she won a medal she would see it as a sign her future remained in boxing If she didn’t she would quit and get a job to support her family She was still only 20 years old Perhaps the universe felt her love of boxing should be rewarded Perhaps it was karma Or perhaps it was just good old fashioned hard work and determination but Sarita got to the semifinals and picked up a bronze medal Along with it came a cash reward from the government and an even bigger prize – employment Sarita was given a job with the Manipur police “I would give half my salary to my family and with the other half – it wasn’t that I was comfortable – but I was able to do it” she says A year later she won gold a year at the World Championships in New Delhi It remains her only world title but over the years she has accumulated 10 other medals in a variety of international competitions including four gold medals at the Asian Boxing Championships Sarita Devi (L) celebrates winning gold in the 52 Kg weight category at World Women Boxing Championship in New Delhi AFP There was one other time in her life when Sarita considered giving up boxing It was right after she had her son in 2013 “I told my husband ‘I don’t know if I can get fit for the Commonwealth Games if I can fight the way I used to fight’” she says “I was scared after the cesarean surgery In boxing you get punched a lot in the stomach Will I be able to take it” According to Sarita her husband Thoiba encouraged her to keep going She listened trained got fitter and realised she could still take a punch “Thoiba tells me ‘If you want to play until 40 play There is no tension” she says with a laugh In the immediate aftermath after the chaos in Incheon Sarita still hoped she would be forgiven as the country had rallied to her side So much so that she was preparing for the World Championships in Jeju South Korea in November She and her family were at Delhi airport on their way to nationals when news of her provisional suspension came through Thoiba got the news as he soon as he stepped off the plane but kept it to himself initially Only after collecting the luggage did he break it “very calmly” “I became very sad and I sat down in the airport for a while to gather myself” Sarita says “It took me some time to get my mind under control” The couple went to their hotel called OGQ and made arrangements to go back to Manipur the next day "We were told to go back” Thobai told NDTV “The media was hounding us and the federation officials advised that she should avoid the press” But it would prove to be a turning point for Sarita “I decided whatever was going to happen would happen” she says “If I get the opportunity to play I will play If I don’t I won’t Doesn’t matter Enough emotional turbulence had happened It was time to distance myself from the situation” Once the ban was in place delaying the surgery any longer became pointless so Sarita went under the knife The first month of recovery at home was the toughest Sarita still lives in Maytang – “I wanted to stay in my village and show the boys and girls that they don’t have to leave to do well in life” – and did her best to occupy herself She helped with the housework played with Tomthil and watched the Indian Super League Sarita had apologised to AIBA and the India’s Sport Minister had appealed to boxing’s governing body to be lenient but there was little indication of when AIBA would complete their investigation into her actions and make an official pronouncement. 7 ? 2015). even though many felt that this wasn’t the strongest of English teams
