A Father’s Love

Apr 10, 2024

When Pankaj Bhatia isn’t managing his busy signage business, he’s investing his time  coaching his daughter Yanee, a rising cricket talent with aspirations of donning the green and gold for Australia.

Despite the demands of running his own business, Bhatia devotes a substantial portion of his week to nurturing Yanee’s cricketing talent. With a commitment to her development, Bhatia spends upwards of 20 hours each week alongside his daughter after work, fine-tuning her skills on the cricket field.

Yanee, at just seventeen years old, has already made significant strides in the cricketing world. A member of Penrith Cricket Club, Yanee recently represented Sydney Thunder Nation Cup, CHS for Sydney West High Schools & NSW All Schools Competition. With dreams of representing her country, Yanee’s dedication and passion for the sport mirrors her father’s support. “She wants to play for Australia but if she doesn’t make it, she wants to go into the defence force,” Bhatia says. Late last month Yanee was selected to for Tour of India for Girls cricket Under 17.

Away from the cricket pitch, Bhatia is a testament to the immigrant success story. Arriving in Australia from northern India in 2009, he soon ventured into entrepreneurship, leveraging his background in sales and Graphic Design to establish a flourishing signage business. “I just loved the business. I like creating new things, doing different things every day and talking to different people every day,” Bhatia says.

Starting from humble beginnings in a garage in Schofields, Bhatia’s business journey has been one of continual growth and expansion. In 2020, he relocated to a larger warehouse in Vineyard, equipped with state-of-the-art printing machinery to better serve his clientele, which includes small businesses, corporate entities, real estate agencies, and builders amongst others.

Known for his commitment to quality and efficiency, Bhatia ensures rapid turnaround times, often delivering products within one to two days to meet his clients’ urgent needs.

Beyond business success and cricket, Bhatia finds fulfilment in family life, spending his leisure time with his wife Preeti and their six-year old son Ryan.
