What makes Bhabani a Real Hero?
In a backward tribal region where girl child is considered a burden, 11 girls are defying norms, and creating a platform where others can dream of doing something other than the backbreaking work in tea estates and getting married. Their life coach is Bhabani Munda. As a 7 year old Bhabani Munda dreamt of playing football. In the tea garden labour quarters of West Bengal's Dooar region girls worked in the fields and were married off at an early age. Bhabani convinced parents to let their girls play. Now in her early 20s, Bhabani leads a fiesty team of 11 that despite no coach, just one set of jersey and two footballs, boasts of players who've played state level and won numerous trophies. It's the Real Hero Chak De moment.
