BANDIPORA: Her eyes full of determination and her face glistening with the sweat of hard work, Tajamul Islam returned home, only to pack her stuff and participate in the world kick-boxing championship to be held in Andria, Italy from 14th November to 19th November. She will be the first girl from Kashmir to take part and represent India in kick-boxing at the international level.
Praising her dedication and determination, her coach, Faisal Ali Dar said,Tajamul has shown ultimate fortitude considering her tender age but her success is the combined efforts of her parents, who supported her in every possible way, her teachers at Goodwill school, who worked really hard to polish her raw talent and most of all the senior Vice-president kick-boxing Federation of India, Mr. Ghulam Nabi Tantray, who encouraged Tajamul to show her talent even after some age related issues surfaced.
I saw something amazingly different in her when she won the gold medal in Delhi and I was fully determined to remove any obstacle coming her way. I believe that she will set new milestones of success, says Ghulam Nabi Tantray.
Tajamuls success is an inspiration to the girls of the valley. She has proven that if you set your heart to it, nothing is difficult. Kashmiri women are slowly breaking all stereotypes and proving they are as capable as men.
