19 year old Omkar Netke resides in a small shanty at Lower Parel but his dreams are limitless. An ace carrom player, Omkar always dreamt of not only representing India at Asian Championship but also winning. He not only dreamt it but achieved it. Omkar bagged gold for India in the recently held Asian Carrom Championship in Nepal.
Apart from this, he has won 6 National titles representing Maharashtra. “I never thought that I would get to represent India in an Asian Carrom Championship game. It was only possible because of my coach and my parents who motivated me. And I am really grateful to Sandeep Sawla who helped me financially,” said Omkar Netke, carrom player. His father Rajan Netke said that he is very proud of his boy and wanted him to excel. His mother Seema Netke expressed the same adding that Omkar should not ignore his studies while excelling in carrom.
Omkar Netke helps his father in his ironing business and devotes his remaining time to his studies and carrom. Currently, he is studying in MD college where he is pursuing his FYBA. Omkar now dreams of winning senior state, nationals and the World Cup.
