India will be represented in London by Abhinav Bindra
Sport: Rifle
Birthdate: 9/28/1982

The fact that India has excelled in the rifle is no coincidence. India has a long tradition of Arm and Small Arms production, with world famous Factories and arms, the rifle, and My "second home" Calcutta Kolkata is renowned.

Abhinav won the Gold in 2008. I hope to see him at his best this year.

Of course all the world knows of the Ishapore Rifle Factory Calcutta-Barrackpore ... See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ishapore_Rifle_Factory

Today India produces probably one of the top, if not top Army signature light machine gun assault rifle in the entire world, the INSAS Standard rifle (5.56 mm), now standard issue the Indian Army.

Jai Hind
