Right from childhood, winning was always on my mind. I had one thing very clear in my
mind that one day, definitely i will be on that podium. I turn to the game of shooting
because of my Guru Bhishmaraj Bam. He encouraged me to take this sport and gave
me new identity.
In 1999 I participated in basic training camp at Bhosala Military School. It was the first
training camp for civilians organised by Bam sir. From 1999 to 2006 i was multitasking
there...as a player, oraganiser, and as an assistant to Bam sir... being a helping hand to
him in his quest of developing the game in Nashik.
I statrted coaching professionally in 2006 with Shreya Gawande.
I completed my Shooting Instructor(NIS) Diploma from Sports Authority of India,
Banglore in 2005, Asian Coaches Training Coarse in 2008 at Delhi. Qualified for the
International Shooting Sports Federation(ISSF) Judge in 2012, did the International
Shooting Sports Federation Coaches Course in Finland in 2013.
From 2006 to 2015, I have trained many national shooters from Nashik. I felt the need
for my own separate club which will give me freedom to work. So I have decided to form
My dream gets fulfilled when my students win medals and stand proudly on the podium.
Winners Shooting Club is my dream project where I aim to make every shooter win.
