well, there is a long list of eminent personalities in India; however, after seeing this cue card, the only one name that comes to my mind is none other than Abhinav Bandra.


 Abhinav Bindra is a renowned Indian air rifle Shooter who put India on the Global shooting map by winning the gold medal in Olympics. he was born in a well-to-do Punjabi family and showed interest in shooting from an early age.

I must tell you, Abhinav Bindra is the first and only Indian who has achieved the world and Olympic gold medals in shooting at the same time.

Although he represented India in the commonwealth games at the age of 15, he started getting noticed after he won a bronze medal. After this, he never looked back, and successfully he was able to earn a total of six gold medals at various international meets. That’s how he gained his name and fame in sport.

Apart from it, he was honored with the Arjuna Award and Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award after his breathtaking performance in the Olympics. Moreover, in 2009, Bindra was awarded the Padma Bhushan award, which was the third-highest civilian award in India.

To achieve his dream, he left no stone unturned. If I am talking about his qualities, he is an optimistic and down-to-earth person. He runs a non-profit organization that has dedicated itself to sporting excellence. He teaches the right techniques and inspires the Indian sporting system. To add to it, he has a plethora of traits, such as he is fearless, a risk-taker, highly competitive, and many other such qualities.

All in all, being an Indian, I feel proud of him because he sets an example for everyone who dreams of making a career in sport.
