Meet Venkateswaran Subramanian a.k.a. Raja, the world's 31st ranked billiards champion.
Raja has a polio afflicted right leg and no sight in his right eye, but those hurdles haven’t stopped him from dreaming big.
Despite the twin handicaps, Raja excels in the sport. He has represented India in two World Championships, and an Australian open.
In order to compete in the 2014 World Billiards Championship in October, Raja needs funds to cover his entrance fees, visa, travel, and accommodation. A Ketto campaign has been started to help him meet his goal.
When we heard his story, it really touched us and we felt we had to do something. It is important that support Indian talent.
