India's Deepak Kumar produced a late surge to steal a silver in the men's 10m rifle event at the Asian Games, giving the shooting contingent its second medal here. China's defending champion Yang Haoran was a cut above the rest, winning the gold with an aggregate of 249.1. Deepak, who was not in the race for a medal until the 18th shot when he produced a perfect 10.9, earned his maiden Asian Games medal with 247.7, pushing Taipei's Lu Shaochuan to third with 226.8 in the 24-shot final. Deepak broke into the Indian team only last year, having picked up shooting back in 2004. However, Deepak sees this medal only as the beginning. 'Everyone keeps thinking about what they will get. I believe in spreading whatever I have learnt from my days in Gurukul. You eventually get your due. There is not point feeling sad about anything. Life is short,' said the spiritual shooter.
