I was a National Level Taekwondo Player & had only one dream — to represent the country in the World Championships and the Olympics. But an accident changed my life — four years of hospitals and the disabilities the mishap left me with robbed me of that opportunity.
I was an engineering student from Bhopal, I was on my way for My semester exams in February 2011 when my bike was hit by a truck. I remained in the hospital till 2015 and went through 17 surgeries.
But my dream of donning Indian colours never dissipated. My mom never let me down because she is also a sports person and could easily undertand my pain at that time. I am now disabled from the lower limbs, which ensured that I could never represent India in taekwondo. So I shifted sports and took up shooting instead.
“During the four years on my hospital bed, I never felt depressed but I spent the time with my mother Sushma Tiwari in discussing an option to fulfill my Olympic dream. ”She was the motivation factor for me throughout my life."
In January 2016, I joined the Gun for Glory Academy- Pune, where My Coach Vijay Jadhavar and Mentor Pawan Kumar Singh Sir were always behind me to encourage me and increase the hunger to achieve and soon in the 10th Dr Karni Singh Memorial Shooting Championship in July, I won the gold medal in the trap event. But better things were still to come. And with that shift, I continued my practice.
In September 2016 I Came to Bhopal to play the state championship in general category in which I shot my two round with an effort to be the best. After few hours I came to know that my score was tied with a shooter for the gold medal. In shoot-off I lost after 6 rounds, But couldn’t satisfy myself with that silver medal and started preparing for the Upcoming AIGVMC.
