Shoot­ing has made me the per­son I am

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

Bronze medal win­ner at the 2012 Lon­don Olympics

Shoot­ing is the rea­son for my be­ing. If I have to re­fer to Mark Twain’s quote of two most im­por­tant days in one’s life, then I can say, shoot­ing is my WHY. It has given me di­rec­tion, fo­cus, wis­dom, re­alise the value of suc­cess, fail­ure, friend­ships and made me the per­son I am.

My ear­li­est mem­o­ries of Sport­star are vivid. I would get the mag­a­zine and pull out the mid­dle poster and stick it on my room’s walls. One of the first poster that went up on my wall was that of Sachin Ten­dulkar.
