Bend it Like Barauni Girl’s

The world has been dominating news and media coverage all over the world .It’s believed that nothing unites the world as much as the earth shaped leather ball and the game called soccer.
Bihar’s’ passion for the game has been featured on BBC News. The report says that
The girls of Barauni village in Begusarai district eat, drink and sleep football and stay up all night to catch their favourite teams at the World Cup on television.
“How can we miss it? We get a chance only once in four years,” says Mausam Kumari, who is rooting for Germany.
The girls of Barauni are not only mad about football, they also play the game with a lot of passion – three girls from the village have played in the national women’s team, and seven others have been in the state team.
In a near-lawless district – over 100 people have died in political killings in one village alone – the achievements of Barauni’s football girls have gone largely unnoticed.
The girls here are so mad about the game that they have a village football club, which even became the women’s club champions in India four years ago.
Bihar’s state football team is ranked fourth in India.
