Tribals make great archers and many others too

One fine morning I visited Potka, a little hamlet town near Jamshedpur, its claim to fame a school that was trained tribal  girls archery.

 5 of the girls from this school had made it to the national archery team, help from ISWP a company in Jamshedpur who  have adopted this school as a CSR initiative and had started to make a huge difference in the school and lives of the girls.

Our friend Ujagar Singh was of the opinion what it was something about the soil something about the girls and what they had in there genes that made them such good archers, I have always wondered if these tribal been doing archery all there life they must have it encoded in there genes and this school girls were proof of my belief .

We went into a classroom and interacting with the girls who came from poor family (this Is a residential school) they bright eyed and bushy tailed look on the face was such a welcome sight

There is no doubt these girls with a little bit of luck will go on to do great things-

needless to say I too did give the bow a twang
Give it a try
