"Do not think you are playing against 16 boys. You are fighting everyone in this country who thinks girls can never match up to men, cannot hold a job as well as a man, cannot make decisions like men. You are fighting each fool who has forgotten that if a girl has given life to him, she can do anything. Anything."
Coach Khan in a speech to the girls prior to their match with the boys hockey team, Chak De India (2007)
