‘Whatever Mary Kom does, she does perfectly with Complete Concentration’

She is a woman of substance, self made, dedicated to her chosen field, and a winner of glory for her country. Daughter, wife, mother of three, Mary Kom has always yet been her own person, with a dream that grows bigger with every success.

Husband and manager, Ouler Kom talks about his celebrity wife in the new home they are now building in Imphal, Manipur.

Firstpost: How did you meet Mary Kom? Ouler Kom: It was in early 2000s. I was in Delhi, on the instructions of my father who had asked me to sit for some of the UPSC exams, so I could get a chance at a good government job in the Civil Services. I was also studying at the same time, and was the President of student’s unions…both the Manipur Student Union and the NESU. Mary came to Delhi for the National Games, and as she was from my own community, I went as a student leader, with some office bearers to ask if she needed anything and how we could help. I gave her my phone number, and she promised to call if she needed our help.
