Nahan: In the absence of shooting range the budding shooters of the town are being forced to practices in a balcony of house with temporary arrangements. Surprisingly, it all was happening in the home district of International shooter Samresh Jung.
14 years Sanya Parmar recently left for National shooting championship after practicing in a range constructed in the gallery of a house. Amazingly Sanya has seen a dream to bring a medal for the state in National shooting championship after practicing in such shooting range (10 meters). According to experts state government need not require crorers to provide a 10 meters shooting range for budding shooters of the district. Only few lakhs can facilitate the shooters.
Experts say the Chamba ground stadium was incomplete since two and half decades due to the inadequate land but the shooting range, basketball and badminton could be constructed on this ground. Recently Aarjoo Thakur of the district had won the gold medal in 34th national women championship due to the facilities provided by her father Inder Singh who even has constructed double court badminton stadium at Renuka ji, now in similar conditions Sanya Parmar was keen to won the medal at national level, while her final goal was to win medal in Olympics. Experts say district was an impressive potential in badminton and shooting but the state was yet to provide even basic facilities to talented player below 14 years.
It is worthwhile to mention here that Sanya had converted a balcony into a shooting range few months back when she was selected for national shooting championship. The question arise that Sanya would have to show her talent on the lines of Aarjoo thakur or state government would come forward to provide facilities to such talented players.
The senior women basketball team is attending a camp for championship at poor basketball ground. Sources say that in these circumstances how result can be accepted. A visit to ground reveled that during the practices players fear to slip rather concentrating on the game even one best player of the state shown her injuries on knee, which was received during the practice. Nahan municipal council had spent one lakh and twenty five thousand on the maintenance of the ground but use of poor quality material the ground has been converted into a worst condition. Source says that this ground had also produce international basketball player Gulshan thakur but in current circumstances it was difficult to organize even a state level basketball tournament.
