The grannies Chandro and Prakashi were the strong pillars of strength for the entire family.

At the age of 50 they picked up a gun for the sake of their daughters in the hopes of encouraging them towards a bright future.

Despite all the odds, they won 352 medals each in the course of their veteran professional life as a shooter.
