Mehuli Ghosh, one of India’s most talented shooters, has qualified for the Paris Olympics. She has secured a Paris 2024 Olympics quota for India by winning the bronze medal in the 10 meter air rifle event. The entire family and the people of the neighbourhood are overjoyed at this unprecedented success of Mehuli. The story of Mehuli Ghosh, a resident of Baidyawati in Hooghly, rising from riches to rags in shooting is very interesting. She decided to make a career in shooting after Abhinav Bindra won the gold medal in the Beijing Olympics.

Mehuli was just 15 years old when an incident changed her life. In 2015, during a training session at Serampore Rifle Club in West Bengal, Mehuli Ghosh misfired a shot and injured an employee’s leg. Mehuli was suspended by the federation and she could not participate in competitions for a few years. She became depressed due to this incident. Everything was fine in Mehuli’s life until that one incident. She had no choice and she packed her rifle and left the playing field. Mehuli was unable to get over this incident. Her mother Mithali understood that Mehuli was mentally ill. Mithali contacted mental health coach Mrinal Chakraborty and Mehuli’s treatment started.

Mehuli’s father Nimai Ghosh told that when his daughter saw Abhinav Bindra winning the gold medal in the Olympics, she insisted on her father to buy her a shooting rifle. Mehuli’s father was not financially capable enough to buy an expensive rifle for his daughter. But the father had to give in to his daughter’s insistence and he bought a rifle for his daughter by borrowing money from relatives, especially Mehuli’s grandmother and his friends.

Mother Mitali Ghosh says that at the age of 13, her daughter got her first training in rifle shooting at the Rifle Training Club in Srirampur, Hooghly. After this, with the help of renowned rifle shooting coach Jaideep Karmakar, she started training at the Newtown Rifle Shooting Club in Kolkata. Later, Mehuli received training under the supervision of Vibhashan Ganguly. Mehuli’s hard work paid off and she managed to win gold in the National Shooting Championship.
