Bala wants more people to support women's football & Nima wants Indian basketball to come off age

Kolkata, Dec 14 (UNI) Bala Devi, Indian women football team's captain, urges people to come and support their football, while basketball star Nima Bhutia is still looking for India to adopt to the modern system of playing.
Beyond the Finish Line is an initiative of Procam International and Empowerment Partner GoSports Foundation to recognise and highlight the stories of those who have made a difference in sport or through sport. The event conducted at The Oberoi Grand, the event’s hospitality partner, and hosted by Dr. Boria Majumdar.
Talking about women's football, Bala Devi said: "We are still far behind. But things have improved. The biggest struggle for us begins at home, in our locality where we are constantly discouraged to take up sports. I fought those adversities and was even more determined when in 2007 I saw a derby at salt lake stadium. One lakh people cheering for football. I wanted to play football come what may."
