Light Fly, Fly High

 

“Few girls of my background dare to speak up. But I'm a one woman army. I'm willing to fight on my own.”

  -Thulasi

 

The odds were always stacked against Thulasi. Born into a “Dalit” or “untouchable” Indian family, she left home at an early age to avoid an arranged marriage. After years of training she is determined to become a professional boxer and fight her way out of poverty. But Thulasi’s greatest battle occurs outside the ring, when the corrupt head of the boxing association demands sexual favours in exchange for permission to enter competitions. Revealing the challenges faced by many women struggling for equality, Light Fly, Fly High is a tribute to an unbreakable independent spirit.
