"I am living a dream", said Hima Das as she tried to put in words her remarkable journey from being a stubborn footballer in a nondescript Assam village to becoming the first Indian woman world champion in athletics.

Assam boosts population of 3.09 crore but this North-Eastern Indian side has been an active contributor to Indian sports. The recent discovery not only has been just a find but is an equivalent to being a raw diamond. The 2018 IAAF World U20 Championships are currently underway in a small city in Southern Finland, Tampere. Thursday night, when the athletes took off in the 400 metres track event on the sound of the pistol, the Indian camp immediately felt a sense of a tense situation.   India’s Hima Das began slow and trailed the stretch. But, her tremendous run in the final 80 metres saw her overtake her rivals and she finished well before the rest, bagging India’s first gold, as she clocked 51.46 seconds. Her timing did not better her performance at the recently ended Commonwealth Games but the 51.46 seconds were enough to earn her a gold medal in Tampere. An entire nation celebrated overnight as Hima she brought India’s first-ever track gold, by senior or junior, at a global event. It was not just ...
