You have been mentored and coached by former Indian Olympic finalist and Arjuna Awardee, Joydeep Karmarkar. Please share the series of events that lead you to take up shooting at a competitive level.
Ms. Mehuli Ghosh
When I was a kid I used to watch Olympics on television. I really used to like watching all kinds of sports. In 2008 I saw Abhinav Bindra win Olympic gold in rifle shooting. From that very moment I started imagining myself participating and winning a medal at the Olympics, my fascination with rifles and pistols gave me clear clarity when I got to know I can also learn rifle shooting. Later when I finally tried my hands on shooting my love for shooting grew and I knew I wanted to do it professionally.
