To give impetus to daughter’s shooting dreams, Manilal Gohil, an auto-driver from Ahmedabad has done something that shows to what extent a father can go to fulfill his child’s dream. With the money he saved for his daughter Mittal’s marriage, he  ended up buying a Rs-five-lakh German rifle for her so that she can bring laurels for the country.

27-year-old Mittal who is national-level shooter needed a top class rifle for a long time as she was earlier borrowing it from others. It is a true fact that shooting is an expensive game and the rifles used in this sport are also very expensive. But Manilal understood his daughter’s potential and didn’t give a second  thought in making such a sacrifice. He is confident that Mittal will be able to win medals with her new rifle and get a chance to represent India at international platforms.

When they recently approached the police commissioner’s office to renew the gun licence, cops lauded Manilal for encouraging his daughter to pursue her dreams.

Mittal’s love for rifles began during her childhood when she saw her grandfather wielding a gun. Shooting turned into a passion for her after Manilal one day took her to the  rifle club in the city, where she tried her luck at shooting and scored well. This fuelled her interest and since then, there was no turning back.

In 2013, Mittal participated in the 57th All-India National Shooting Championships along with shooters Anju Sharma and Lajja Goswami. Her performance won her a bronze medal at the championship.
