It is a huge honor for me to be an Arjuna awardee.

There are prayers for me (at the Nagaland churches). The chief minister has wished me luck personally… It's a proud moment for me

Yes, I want to tell only one thing – Go Hard or Go Home. When I am at the ground I am only thinking about archery.

We had to go through a lot of hardships to come here. We did not have any equipment, no facility. But there is no dearth of talent. Hope things would get better now… I hope to return with an Olympic medal that would inspire my fellow Naga people. Their support means a lot for me. Now, it's the time to give something back to them and to my tribe

Alag, alag chehre hain, but we are not outsiders. Irrespective of whether I win a medal or not, my participating in London could help change the perceptions the rest of the country have about us

We will stop being called 'Ching Chong' whenever we venture out in the rest of the country

I am not comfortable with the backward status of we Chakhesang people. It is not needed anymore. We have gone ahead in life. I have benefited greatly from their support. Now it is time for me to give something back, by giving them a name across the country

This is the year (Rio 2016) which will change everything. I'm expecting at least two medals

We have seen how shooting's landscape has changed after their first medal (drawing a parallel with shooting where Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore won a silver medal in double trap in 2004 Athens Olympics)

An Olympic medal will give archery a massive boost.

Training as usual, meaning 7-8 hours a day.

I don’t think about the result, I’ll just shoot my best.  

Dola Banerjee (Archer)

No, I don’t have any (lucky charm). I just have faith.

There is an archery club beside our house in India—Baranagar Archery Club. I used to go there in the afternoon for physical fitness and to refresh mind. One day, the coach of the club, thinking that my body posture was suitable for archery, asked my father to put me in archery lessons. This is how I started archery at the age of 9.

My performance kept getting better and, at the age of 16, I competed for the first time internationally at the Youth World Championship San Diego 1996.
