Shooting to me was my life. It was my biggest learning ground and my emotional battle ground! The journey was one which will be the most thrilling part of my life.

My greatest memory of Sportstar was being covered early on when I broke the junior world record, by Sportstar’s correspondent Kamesh Srinivasan. He is someone I have had great respect, as he has done a great service to Indian shooting by continuously giving it coverage, specially during the early days, in the magazine and in the newspaper.
