Described as Magnificent Mary by the International Boxing Association (AIBA), the latest feather in Mary Koms well-adorned cap is the Rajya Sabha membership given to her. Rather amused by the honour, Mary Kom said the animated discussions in the house left her a tad shaken when she sat to witness the proceedings after oath-taking. “After oathtaking, I sat for few minutes, there was so much noise all around and I was wondering what is happening. May be when I sit there for a few more times, I would get used to it. I hope nobody shouts at me,” she laughed. “On a serious note, I am not focussed on politics because I have a huge assignment in front of me. I am thankful to the President and the Prime Minister for giving me this honour. I will try to serve sports as well as I can during this stint. I will also try to ensure that I am a voice of the North-East,” she said. But she ruled out foraying into professional boxing, which has made rapid strides in India after Vijender Singhs sensational run in the circuit. “Pro boxing is very diffcult.
