In Sports, the tiny state of Manipur has always made India proud. What is even more remarkable is the astonishing rise of Manipuri women in Indian Sports. From Saikhom Mirabai (weightlifting), Mangte Chungneijang Mary Kom (Boxing), Ngangom Bala Devi (football), Pukhrambam Sushila Chanu (Hockey), Laishram Bombayla Devi ( Archery) to Mix Martial Arts sensation, RK Jojo Devi, these amazing Manipuri ladies have awed us all with their skills and dedication and winning streaks, keeping the Indian tri-color flying high in the international sporting arena. To top it all, two of these achievers, MC Mary Kom and Saikhom Mirabai Chanu have delivered Olympic medals for India, a bronze and silver respectively.

Pinky Thokchom, 37 years, and her husband Tikendrajit Thokchom, 40 years, were so thrilled when Pinky  gave birth to baby Pamsy as they always wanted their first born to be a baby girl. “A girl child is more caring, obedient and relatively easier to handle than a baby boy especially when yours is a nuclear family”, Tikendrajit confided, a professional photographer. “Besides Pamsy would be the extra hand when I give birth to a son as my second born”, recalled Pinky, a nurse by profession, when Pamsy was born on 11 December 2015.


Unfortunately, the euphoria evaporated when baby Pamsy was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at the age of 2.6 years. Pamsy suffered from speech delay, no eye contacts and exhibited repetitive behaviours such as licking walls, floors and the washing machine refrigerator etc.
