That pint sized girl ......

Wonderful things come by ... irrespective of the package size ..

Ding Ding Ding ( First Round ) 

She diddn't need any alarm bells to wake up .. 
this far .. The land of untamed north east .. 
She didn't need any motivation to rise up 
this far .. survival a choice, not a luxury .. 

Ding Ding Ding ( Second round ) 

They said, she wasn't fit for those manly things .. 
she refused .. Training hard so she wouldn't fall. 
They said, she was a lowly pea-sized town girl .. 
she refused .. the world already beckoning her call. 

Ding Ding Ding ( Third Round ) 

We cribbed .. our eyes focused only on medals 
She dreamed .. To win for her country, nothing more 
We cribbed .. About China thrashing our players 
She dreamed .. To fight till those knuckles got sore 

Ding Ding Ding ( Fourth Round ) 

We cheered .. only when cheering seemed easy 
Our hopes blatantly masking our hypocrisy 
And as those mighty blows start thundering down … 
We pause & admire … that pint-sized girl's resiliency. 

Ding Ding Ding Ding ( Match Over ) 

She stands tall on that stage … 
A humble smile adorning her face. 
And as we, the audience applaud her … 
She banishes those years of pain with grace ...
