Hi Sounak,

Try to hit the ball a little earlier in front of you and see if it helps.  Make sure at the point of contact the bat is facing straight towards where you want the ball to go.  Also keep the stroke simple.  The senior player is right, you are probably starting with your bat behind your back.

With your feet, stay closer to the table and quite square on to the table.
