Unlike other sports, shooting sport is a specialized game requiring more than normal intellectual acumen. Yet until very recently no attempts seem to have been made in India to encourage the best available shooting talent in the country. Therefore this is a modest attempt to write and emphasize the importance of the guidance of young aspirants to national and international championships. The book contains memoirs of an internationally reputed sportsman and covers of 21 years of international clay pigeon shooting in which the author himself took part and represented his country in five Olympics, five World Shooting Championships and many Asian Shooting Championships. The 38th World Shooting Championship in Cairo in 1962 remains his best performance when he tied for the Gold Medal of the World with a score of 295/300. So far this remains the only World Medal India has ever won in shooting sport generally. All lovers of the sport particularly those, young budding shooting aspiring to participate in international events, will fund this book interesting.
