Girls' rugby... on the Pakistan border

We hear nothing but bad news from some parts of the world, and at the moment no more so than in lands surrounding Pakistan. They sound like a continual war zone, with life especially hard for teenage girls and young women who - from what we hear - do not have the freedoms we take for granted.

This is therefore a remarkable story - the story of Saliah, a Muslim schoolgirl from Kashmir, who is captain of the Indian national team. She and Saba - a year junior to her - have been chosen to attend a major IRB development course in India, with Saliah aiming for a career in the game.

Well worth a look at, the article gives a positive look at life from a place that we hear few positive stories.
