Setting an example for all the fathers, an Ahmedabad-based auto rickshaw driver named Manilal Gohil has gifted a rifle worth Rs 5 lakhs to his daughter to train her for international level shooting competitions.
According to reports, Manilal had earlier saved this money for his daughter Mittal’s marriage.
However, later, he decided to spend it on her passion for shooting.
Mittal, who lives with her parents and brothers in a chawl in the Gomtipur area of Ahmedabad, is a national level shooter.
She developed interest in the game almost four years ago and her desire to pursue the game got all support from the family too.
Manilal got Mittal enrolled at a rifle club, where she practised shooting with a rented rifle and soon won a bronze medal at the National Championship.
