Pankaj Advani added a new sparkle to the Jain University (also known as Sri Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain College) when he won the World Billiards Championship.
Pankaj Advani defeated nine times champion Mike Russell at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds to win the elusive World Professional Billiards Championship.

- Manish Pandey – The only Indian to score Centuries in both Indian Premier League and the Karnataka Premier League.
- Ambi – son of acclaimed violinist Dr.Lakshminarayana Subramaniam, equally matching the footsteps of his father

Finally, at the rate which jainites are making us proud one can surely see that cap is going to one hell of a feathery tale. Go Jainites go….
