In the early 1980s P.T.Usha and Phoolan Devi were two Indian women that had caught the imagination of Mumbiram. He considered them iconic of handsome dark ethnic personalities that were examples of an entirely new and different ideal of human beauty. Mumbiram had followed all news that appeared in the media about either of them. Mumbiram had eagerly watched Usha’s sprint in the 400m women’s final at the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. He was full of admiration for Usha’s cool, collected and even stride right to the finish. She missed the bronze medal by a mere one hundredth of a second. But she did not show the slightest sign of desperation or frantic effort. It appeared as if it was important for her that her appearance had to be one of aesthetic excellence rather than a brute feat of physical prowess. Mumbiram had followed all news about Usha in the following years. He had noticed how she touched the ground and then her heart and her forehead soon after she took her position at the blocks at the beginning of any competition. Coming from a tribal background Usha had made an indelible mark on the field of Indian athletics. Usha had caught popular imagination as an Indian athlete making a mark at international level. For Mumbiram she was an example of human grace that comes out of a healthy and aesthetic communion with God.
