Check out this story. I love it. Hope I can still shoot when I'm her age.

I wrote about her last year:
https://www.bullseyeforum.net/t15670-sharpshooting-in-india-by-an-84-year-old-grandmother?highlight=india

I think I posted a video too.  I found out where I could possibly go to visit her:
(https://www.google.com/maps/place/Johri,+Uttar+Pradesh+250345,+India/@28.5993336,71.8815084,6.28z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x390c48cfaf25a011:0x683667debf567959!8m2!3d29.1024646!4d77.3467996)
......but I can't see that happening.  I might get back to India in October, but Johri, her village, is a very long ways from where I'll be staying.  Who knows, once the Earth is healthy again, maybe I'll find a way.

Check the video.

May she rest in peace and continue to be an inspiration.

Thank you for posting - I was unaware of this.
India is going through a terrible time - but I don't understand why they didn't produce enough of their own vaccines.  

She will be missed.

I'm afraid to call my Indian friends, as I'm afraid of potentially terrible news.  I will start doing so anyway, better now than "too late".
