    Early life[edit]

    Kom was born in Kagathei village, Moirang Lamkhai in Churachandpur district of rural Manipur in India.[1][24] She came from a poor Kom family.[1] Her parents, Mangte Tonpa Kom and Mangte Akham Kom were tenant farmers who worked in fields.[25] They named her Chungneijang. Kom grew up in humble surroundings, helping her parents with farm related chores, going to school and learning athletics initially and later boxing simultaneously. Kom's father was a keen wrestler in his younger days. She is the eldest of three children – she has a younger sister and brother.[26] She hails from a Christian Baptist family.[27]

    Kom studied at the Loktak Christian Model High School at Moirang up to her sixth standard and thereafter attended St. Xavier Catholic School, Moirang, up to class 8. During this time, she took a good amount of interest in athletics, especially javelin and 400 metres running. It was at this juncture, Dingko Singh, a fellow Manipuri returned from the 1998 Bangkok Asian games with a gold medal. Kom recollects that this had inspired many youngsters in Manipur to try boxing, and she too thought of giving it a try.[28]

    MC Mary Kom said that she would have not achieved much in her career without people’s support. “I don’t know how I will repay people’s debt”, said the ace boxer.

    She advised fellow athletes that maintaining strict discipline and giving 100 per cent concentration in training, are the key in achieving one’s goal. “Practice regularly, dream to achieve big in your respective fields, keep discipline, have the determination and give the best effort”, she added.

    Chief Minister N. Biren Singh said that the cabinet took the decision to honour May Kom, after consultation with intellectuals and experts. He said the idea is based on the concept of honouring a warrior or kings/queens ‘angamba-angambi’ on achieving victory in a war.
