Eastern Sporting Union FC firmly established themselves as the one of the teams to beat in the Women's I-League as they amassed the biggest win of the preliminary stage, smashing UPFC 13-0.
Kamla Devi started the carnage in the seventh minute. Before the half-time whistle went, Union scored five more goals. Umapati and Mandakni scored a goal each in the space of four minutes. Premi Devi netted a brace in the space of two minutes. Three minutes before the half-time whistle, Prameshwori scored her side's sixth.
The onslaught continued in the second half with Bala Devi getting her third and fourth goals of the competition. Around the hour mark, Kamla Devi also got her second goal, her team's ninth.
There was no sign of any respite for the hapless UPFC defence, who would go on to concede 3 goals in the space of 10 minutes – Bembem Devi and Manda Devi's goals were sandwiched by Premi Devi completing her hat-trick. The 13th goal was scored by Haokip, one minute from full-time. Union had also won their tournament opener, a hard-fought 3-2 win against Jeppiyar Institute
Eastern Sporting Union 13 (Premi Devi x 3, Kamla Devi x 2, Bala Devi x 2, Umapati, Mandakni, Prameshwori, Bembem Devi, Manda Devi, Haokip) beat UPFC 0
These GIFs show you what it means to miss breakfast
That monstrous roar is your empty stomach.
Let’s take a glance at your every day morning routine. You crawl out of bed, go for a quick shower, pull out and wear your neatly ironed clothes at the speed of light and then rush out of the house, making sure you have your keys and wallet in place.
You walk into office, relieved because you have made it to work on time. Stifling yawns and checking emails, you wonder how your colleagues are charged up and buzzing with energy. “What is wrong with these people” you mumble to yourself.
Slowly, you start to change. You start snapping at colleagues and start arguing with your computer. You take out your frustration on anything or anyone in sight.
To add to the aggressive behaviour, you’ve completely lost your focus. After some time, you simply forget what you were doing.
Unable to bear the hunger pangs, you go for a mid-morning snack. It is only when a colleague asks you for a bite do you realize that you have developed into a fully formed, hunger fueled, monster. Try not to look at yourself in the mirror.
If only you had spared not even twenty or ten but just 5 minutes in the morning and not skipped breakfast, your story would look completely different - as you will see in this video.
The fast dip in your mood and lack of focus is because your body has missed its most important meal of the day – breakfast. Research has shown that skipping a meal, especially in the morning, worsens the mood because there is a drop in the blood sugar. This in turn affects the levels of serotonin and dopamine, the chemicals produced in the brain that control our moods and feelings. In simpler English, not having breakfast is going to make you really cranky and confused!
Morning is also when the body needs maximum nutrition to function efficiently through the day as you’ve just woken up from a full 7 hours of no food (and if you’re sleeping less than that, that’s a whole other article).
So in short, having a breakfast could make you go from looking like the earlier GIFs to this:
