Almost all of the readers of this following post will not be able to recognize the person in topic today. He is a local talent. Winning all the tournaments in his locality and the neighboring cities, he dreams of one day taking the table tennis world by storm. Although, there are some bits of information one can scratch from Google. But now that won’t be necessary, because I just conducted a small interview with him. Here are just some specs of details followed by excerpts.
