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.
