"There is no sector where females are left behind. We are fortunate that the president of India is also a female," Thakur added.

The icing on the cake was skipper M.C. Mary Kom's unanimous points win against 2016 Olympic bronze medallist Ingrit Valencia of Colombia.
Nikhat Zareen had earlier criticized the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) for giving Mary Kom an automatic chance in next year's Olympic qualifiers.
The 19-year-old pugilist, who was making her maiden appearance in the World Championships, lost the gold medal bout 1-4 against second-seeded Ekaterina Paltceva of Russia.
Post the match, India had appealed to the authority to have another look at the points awarded but it has been declined.
