Obviously, there are currently security concerns and some organisational difficulties. But I do think all efforts should be made to keep India in the picture. Of course, what they really need is a top player like a Wattana or Ding.
Would need some work, been there a few times over the last few years and doesn't seem that popular - even though it was invented over there by some Brits - maybe that's why? Forgetting the colonial past and all that? Struggled to even find a pool table in most places I went except "western" hotels. Like Wattana/Ding, needs some Indian player to suddenly come from nowhere, do really well and popularise it over there. It can happen, but may take some time.
