Would be good to dig up the history of Women's football in India. We didn't have too many pictures way back then. I was on the team shortlisted for the first Womens Football team in India from Karnataka (1975). Players were selected from the State Level teams of other sports. I used to play Basketball for the Bihar State Womens team. I think the first Nationals were played in Jaipur and the first country visited was Australia. (This needs verification). I had to give it up as my then boss at the Public Sector company I worked for in Bangalore did not sanction the leave I needed to attend practices.
His stern comment was: " Young lady are you here to work or to play?"! The stadium was the Kanteerava Stadium in Richmond Road and our coach a Mr Shanmugam...maybe an olympian.
