From a helpless young girl being pawed by a pack of hounds in Guwahati, the media focus has shifted now to a sinewy Manipuri woman punching her way to international attention. Some shift. I wonder how the powerful women competing in the Olympics come across to the moral sainiks. Women swimmers, gymnasts, weight lifters, sprinters, marathon runners in their swimsuits, trunks and briefs, their body suits, unconscious of their bare, rippling thighs and their warrior bodies smashing records, sweeping the medal tally. And two medals out of our lean pickings have been won for us by women in clothes that are by the definition of our culture keepers, not decent enough and against our tradition.
