Betiyaan Ladvaao... Desh Banaao...

This... to quote from the JSW Steel's youtube link... is Geeta Phogat's (she is the first Indian woman to win a gold medal in Wrestling at the Commonwealth Games) story. But the story is not just her's, there are four Phogat sisters...  All wrestlers...

JSW has also got its timing sort of right... What with the PM's Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Campaign...


The Phogat sisters... Currently training for Rio 2016 at The National camp, Lucknow
To quote from this article in the DNA... "Mahavir (their father and coach) has brought about a minor revolution in gender equations in this part of the state. "He always wanted chhoris. I was the one who wanted a son," says Daya (the mother). The couple has five children, four girls and one, the last born, son, and Mahavir is training all of them."
