From Assam’s nondescript village to gold medal in Finland

Agartala, July 14,2018 ( Agencies):On the day the 18-year-old, Hima Das, raced to grab the gold medal at the World U20 Championship in Tampere, Finland, much to the awe of her countrymen, especially people of Assam, the rustic playground at Kandhulimari village under Bilotiya Gaon panchayat in Assam’s Dhing constituency, where she used to practice was in knee-deep water.

“This should speak volume of how much grit and determination she has required to drive herself to the hallowed podium where she has reached today,” said one of Hima’s teachers in Dhing College, Biman Hazarika, exuding confidence that this gritty athlete in horizon is yet to give her best timing.

Hima couldn’t appear for her Higher Secondary (Class 12) Arts stream final examination this year as she had to participate in the Commonwealth Games.

Born to paddy farmer Ranjit Das and Jonali Das of Kandhulimari village, Hima has been a livewire since her childhood.

She used to play more with village boys than girls. One of her passion is playing football.  She used to be hired by various women football teams in the area to participate in different rural tournaments in the state.

The eldest of three siblings, Hima was encouraged and facilitated more by elder brother of her father and her aunt, a retired school teacher to pursue her dream in the field of athletics.

Her entire family watched her performance last night on the TV screen at her village home. Her excited father said, “We are sure Hima will go much farther in her pursuit for excellence. She has been training so hard day in and day out, in summer and in cold winter mornings to keep her motivated and on track.”

“This happy-go-luck athlete does not know what tension is. On June 28 last, I had talked to her advising her not be tense before her performance. She laughed and asked ‘what is tension sir’. This is her spirit,” said Professor Hazarika who teaches History in Dhing College.

At the initial stage of her career, Hima used to take tips from Samsul Haque, the physical education teacher at Nagaon Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya located at Dhing as there was no professional coach available to her at that time.

An NCC cadet in Dhing College, Hima firmly believes it is the sheer will power complemented by relentless hard work that brings success and support comes in plenty along with success.

It has been a spectacular rather a dream rise from amid the typical paddy fields of rural Assam, Nagaon, to making India proud by becoming the first Indian woman to win gold at the World U20 Championships in 400 meter race. 

Hima was a favourite to win gold as she is the Under-20 season leader in this quarter-mile event.

Das clocked an Indian Under-20 record of 51.32 seconds to finish sixth in the Commonwealth Games 400m final in Gold Coast in April this year. She was only 1.17 seconds behind gold medallist Amantle Montsho from Botswana.

In the 4x400 metres relay she was part of the Indian team that competed in the final where they finished seventh in a time of three minutes and 33.61 seconds.

Since the promise shown at the Commonwealth Games, Hima has gone on to improving her timings. She lowered the Indian Under-20 record in 400m to 51.13 seconds while winning gold at the National Inter-State Championships in Guwahati recently.

The historic feat in Finland is also significant for the sprinter, considering that it has come less than two years from taking part in her first competition – an inter-district competition in Assam in 2016.

Her coach Nipon Das said he wasn’t worried when Hima wasn’t among the top three at the final curve. 

“Her race started in the final 80 metres. It has been just two years since she first wore spikes,” Nipon told the media.

Her talent was first spotted by Nipon, who is an athletics coach with the Directorate of Sports and Youth Welfare, during an inter-district meet in 2016.

The coach thereafter asked Hima to shift to Guwahati, about 140 km from her village, and convinced the youngster that she had a future in athletics.

Her parents were initially reluctant to part with the youngest of six children leave but were later convinced.

Assam Athletics Federation today announced Rs two lakh as reward for magnificent Hima.

‘Bengal mangoge toh cheer denge': TMC leader Madan Mitra issues open threat to BJP in Mamata Banerjee’s state

Kolkata, Jan20,2021: A few months ahead of the assembly elections in West Bengal, a senior Trinamool Congress leader, Madan Mitra, has issued an open threat to the BJP which is trying to further expand its footprint in the Mamata Banerjee-ruled state.

Addressing a public rally in Howrah on Tuesday, Mitra said, “Those from BJP listen, 'doodh maango to kheer denge, agar Bengal maango toh chiir denge'.” (Listen, you people of BJP, if you ask for milk, we will give you kheer, But if you ask for Bengal, we will rip you off),” Mitra said while challenging the BJP.


Mitra, a former state transport minister,
 further claimed that he will slit his wrist if Mamata Banerjee doesn’t win by a margin of one lakh votes from Nandigram. He made the comment after BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari claimed that he will quit politics if he doesn’t defeat CM Mamata Banerjee with a margin of 50,000 votes.

Referring to him, Mitra said ‘it will be better, he keeps mum.’ The BJP, which is trying to unseat the Mamata Banerjee government in the upcoming Assembly elections, has already sounded the poll bugle in the TMC-ruled state.

India's COVID cases to peak in June-July: AIIMS director

New Delhi, May8,2020:All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Director Dr Randeep Guleria on Thursday said India may witness the peak of COVID-19 cases in June or July. "The answer of when will be the peak of cases of COVID-19 in India depends upon modelling data. National and international both experts are analysing the data. Most of them have guessed that India will most likely see the peak in June or July," he said.

Dr Guleria added, earlier it was analysed that the peak will be in May but due to extended lockdown the peak has also been extended.

It is a dynamic process that depends upon various factors. It is a long-lasting battle. Cases will come even after the peak is passed. People's lifestyle in terms of travelling and socialising will change," he said.

The AIIMS Director also said only with time the quantum of effect of the lockdown in the country will be known. The cases are increasing with the tally on Thursday at 52,952, including 1,783 deaths according to the Union Health Ministry data. The total tally includes 35,902 active cases while 15,266 patients have recovered from COVID-19.
