"I have tried almost all sports except cricket, football and volleyball. My parents both played badminton and my father was also a state-level volleyball player so there were no restrictions. When I was handed my weapon and asked to take it up, I started just for fun but later on I became serious about it. No other sport gave me the satisfaction I wanted, but once I started shooting seriously, I got to know that this is the push-back I really wanted. In other sports, say boxing, you can hit the person harder and remove your frustration, but in shooting it is more challenging, you have to make yourself calmer. That's what attracted me to the sport." (scroll.in, 19 Jun 2018; Athlete, 18 Aug 2018)

"10m air rifle needs a lot of precision. We can't just shoot a 10.2 instead of a 10.9. I think in shooting, precision is way higher than any other sport. A shot may work or may not work. Precision and patience are the best key elements in this event, and these aspects excite me the most." (womensoutdoornews.com, 30 Oct 2020)
