LALVARMAWI HMAR: From National Pride to obscurity | Fox Journal Special Edition

With the ongoing Footgal 2018 gaining public interest, a certain name has been making the rounds all over town; and that name is Lalvarmawi Hmar. Lalvarmawi currently plays for the Living Gym team in the aforementioned tourney where she has amassed 10 goals in just 5 matches. Mawi's game has definitely been a surprise and her personal exploits have helped earn her team a place in the finals.



Although she is new to many, Mawi is not a stranger to the game and has represented the country in different levels and tournaments, which to an extent, explains the goal fest.

Mawi was born and raised in Tuiring, a small village just a few kilometeres from Churachandpur. Although geographically insignificant, this small village has been known to produce some of the best local footballing talents and Mawi was no exception. She developed a love for the game at a young age and was undoubtedly blessed with a gift. Despite her great potential, Mawi had a tough time finding a platform from where to showcase her talent as girls were not overly encouraged to venture in contact sports. She would often be the only female player in a tournament traditionally set for males. In one such instance, Mawi caught the eye of several scouts from Imphal and was soon signed by Kumbi Kayo, a club from the state capital. She then went on to play for several other clubs and was first called up to the national side for the U-17 team. This came as a surprise for her as she was not yet considered for state selection during the time. After representing the country in both the U-17 and U-19 teams, Mawi undoubtedly impressed a few people along the way and national call up was only inevitable. She represented the National Women Football team on several occasions, notably in Vietnam and South Korea. She has also won countless accolades playing for the state team consistently bagging top scorer and player of the tournament prizes.

Inspite of her humble beginnings, Mawi gradually made a name for herself amongst the Indian footballing community but unfortunately, like all things good, the momentum did not last. Lack of funds and resources evidently associated with the sport meant players like Mawi could not capitalize on their stellar performances. She eventually had to go back home and work in rice fields to earn a living. With her father deceased and a mother to look after, Mawi has a few options left. Her story perfectly encapsulates the sorry state of affairs of Indian football and how players like Mawi have been repeatedly let down by the authorities. Mawi is unfazed though, as she continues to show her amazing talent amongst the football loving folks of this town who, unlike the authorities, are not so willing to give up on her that easily.
