Born in Imphal, Mamota now resides in New Delhi where she manages a gymnasium and trains with her husband. She began her training in the year 2011. The couple started working out together, and soon fitness became a shared passion.

Bodybuilding requires a very rigorous regime, and one also has to follow a rigorous diet. Those who remember Mamota from before she started body-building speak of how dainty she was. As she started to gain muscle mass, she began looking masculine and for a very long time that made her a very private person.

The courage to accept the changes and meet people came in slowly. She now describes herself as a woman of steel. Being in a profession that is male-dominated has been tough for Mamota, but she has proved that where there is a will, there is a way.
