Cheers to young Pankaj Advani of Bangalore for winning the World Professional Billiards Championship for the first time. This is another terrific achievement for the 24 year old. The fact that his victory was over the defending champion, Mike Russell made the win that much more special.
I am impressed by the achievements of some of India’s young achievers and try to publicize their feats through this medium. Not that they need this publicity but to tell their stories to inspire others. When people say that India’s sporting achievements are only in cricket, I am glad to say there are increasingly more exceptions to that rule. Only the other day, young Pankaj Advani from my hometown of Bangalore became the World Champion in Billiards. This was the 5th World Championship he won.
