Mary Kom thanks Delhi Police for celebrating her son’s birthday amid coronavirus lockdown

Delhi Police made Mary Kom’s younger son Prince’s birthday special by bringing a cake and singing the birthday song for the young boy.

Delhi Police on Thursday surprised Olympian boxer and Rajya Sabha MP Mary Kom by bringing cake for her son, Prince, on his birthday amid the coronavirus lockdown.

Mary Kom took to her official Twitter handle to post a video where Delhi Police personnel can be seen bringing a cake for her son, Prince, and singing the song ‘Happy Birthday to you”. Mary Kom thanked the police for their gesture and saluted them for their “dedication and commitment” in their role as corona warriors.

“Thank you @DCPNewDelhi for making this birthday so special for my younger son Prince Kom. You all are real frontline warriors, I salute you all for your dedication and commitment. @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice @LtGovDelhi @pragya_92,” Kom tweeted.

“We are all hoping and praying desperately for things to go back to normal but can they ever? Of course not. This virus is an enemy that no one even understands completely. Sports will change. Mine is a contact sport and I am personally worried how we are going to deal with it. For the time being, I don’t see any sparring happening in training at least, I would be totally against it,” Mary Kom was quoted as saying by PTI.

“I believe once a vaccine is developed, things can go back to how they were before but until then, travelling will be less frequent, training will not exactly be a team thing and tournaments, I don’t know how they will resume.

“I believe training itself will become very individualistic. As for the fans, they will come back to watch, I don’t see a problem there. But yes, the standard of hygiene at tournaments will go up to another level.”
