Opening Gambit
Not meaning to spoil things for anyone, mind but the fact remains that India has no world champion by the name of Vishwanathan Anand. But yes, India does possess and takes great pride in a certain Anand Vishwanathan, newly-crowned world champion in the game of 64 squares. Vishwanathan is the father, Anand the son. The mixup occured once he began going abroad. 'Anand V' became, thanks to the bureaucratic policy of putting the initial first, 'V Anand', on his passport and other documents. And when that was expanded, it became Vishwanathan Anand duly shortened to Vishy. Initially, Anand took some trouble to point out the error. But along the way, he came to like the name 'Vishy', figured that carrying his father's name was a matter of pride, and let the name stick. For the record, Anand was born on December 11, 1969, to Vishwanathan, who retired as General Manager, Southern Railways, and Susheela, housewife and chess afficionado. It was the latter who, when Anand was five, initiated him into the mysteries of the game, and oversaw his early development. At the time, Chennai (Madras, as it was then called) had a flourishing chess culture, thanks to the presence of Manuel Aaron, India's first ever international master, and Ravi Kumar, India's second IM. The hallmark of great achievers, in any field, is that they build up a legend of their own. There is, thus, the story of Sunil Gavaskar learning cricket in a narrow gully, and honing his ability to play with a straight bat because the slightest deviation from that practise could bring with it a broken window, and inevitable chastisement. Or the story of the young Sachin Tendulkar batting in the nets with a one rupee coin placed on his stumps, as reward for any bowler who could knock it off. Sachin, we are told, became the neighbourhood plutocrat by default, pouching the coins after defending his stumps against all comers.

Where Pete Rose Went Wrong
Pete Rose, the legendary baseball player who torpedoed his own career by gambling on his sport, makes the shocking revelation in his recently released book that he does NOT play chess. No wonder! One of the nice things about chess is that it doesn't support delusions of grandeur for most of us in the same way that more randomish occupations such as betting or dotcom investment do. Even games like backgammon allow you to tell yourself that the dice are merely running against you today and that you're a megagenius who understands everything this is the attitude that sucks people in and ruins lives. Thanks to Chess.FM's Hangin for noticing the Pete Rose comment on not playing chess.

Anand's crown of glory
By winning the World Chess Championship final in Teheran, Vishwanathan Anand becomes India's, and also Asia's, first world chess champion. P.K. AJITH KUMAR
GRANDMASTER Pravin Thipsay vividly remembers that hot summer day of 1983. He was playing in the National team chess championship at the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, when some players told him that a boy was about to defeat Manuel Aaron, India' s first International Master (IM) of chess. He rushed to that board and was surprised to find the boy wrapped in blankets and woollen clothes on that sultry May afternoon. Thipsay learnt that the boy, representing Madras Colts, was running high fever but had insisted on playing, and his mother was sitting next to him. He was astonished to note that Aaron was taking a lot of time on each of his moves, while his young opponent was replying instantly. When the 13 year-old, won the game, he had made all his moves within half an hour. VAHID SALEMI/AP

Chess " The Game of Kings and the King of Games" "The way he plays chess demonstrates a man's whole nature." -Stanley Ellin "There is no other game so esteemed, so profound and so venerable as chess; in the realm of play it stands alone in dignity." -Ely Culbertson "The chess master today must have courage, a killer instinct, stamina, and arrogance." -Evans
"It is not a move, even the best move, that you must seek, but a realizable plan." -Znosko-Borovsky

1963-, Armenian chess player; b. Azerbaijan as Garri Kimovich Wainshtein. In Sept. 1984 he challenged Anatoly KARPOV for the world championship and appeared likely to win when the match was halted amid controversy in Feb. 1985. He won a rematch (Sept.-Nov. 1985), becoming the youngest world champion ever. He later broke with the World Chess Federation and formed a rival association; in 1993 he defended against Nigel Short. Kasparov is noted for his aggressive style of play. "The future of chess lies in the hands of this young man."

News THEY'VE GOT GAME So when the Chess-master of the Century readies himself to pen his own story - the making of a genius, we expect an engrossing, revealing and emotional account of the grandmaster's game and life. But right now, the pages of Anand's dairy are still blank. Year 2004 will be dedicated to filling those blank pages. In his mind, he's worked out the first few lines. His mind ponders over ‘failures that became stepping stones'. Will it be easy for the Grandmaster to write his legacy in print? "It'll be a comment on my life. It'll have lots of anecdotes. I'm reading autobiographies of famous people. Professionally, the last year has been good for me," he avers. In real life, he's a master of contrast and transparency, almost simplistic in his habits and lifestyle. "I believe that life is short, so I enjoy it. Life is fun, so I live it to the fullest. I desired success, I got it. I haven't let it go to my head. I never think of myself as a hero," says the champion with an easy and unfussy personal style. Anand follows the world of India's sporting stars on the telly: he kept pace with Anju Bobby George's giant leap; he paused in awe at Rahul Dravid's Big Miracle; and whenever Mahesh or Leader strike lethal shots on the green grass, he is glued to their strategies. ‘Icons of guts' always win his admiration. "I play with single-minded obsession. Chess is a very individual game - I'm not answerable to anyone. It can spoil you. Like, I don't think I can ever work for a boss now," says Anand, who became a grandmaster at 17 and is also known as the tiger from Chennai.

This is an unofficial page made by one of Anand's many fans around the world. Last updated 10 November 1998. Anand won the Fontys tournament in Tilburg, scoring 4 wins (all as White), 7 draws, and no losses. Leko and Sadler were also undefeated, but with fewer wins. See the Fontys web site for more information and for pictures of our hero. Put that together with Anand's other major tournament victories in 1998, and it sure looks like Anand is the best in the world! The Linares tournament he won was particularly impressive, a Category 21 event pitting the seven best players in the world against each other in a double-round-robin format (see the cross-table below). Anand also won the grandmaster tournament in Madrid and tied for first at Wijk aan Zee this year. Sure, Karpov and Kasparov both have plausible claims to the World Championship, and both are great players. Affable gentleman that he is, Anand has pretty much steered clear of the debate over whose "World Championship" tournament is more valid, and simply piles up the wins. Here's the Linares cross-table: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Anand 7.5 xx 1= 0= == 1= =1 =1 Shirov 7.0 0= xx == =1 10 10 11 Kasparov 6.5 1= == xx == == == == Kramnik 6.5 == =0 == xx =1 == 1= Svidler 5.5 0= 01 == =0 xx 10 =1 Ivanchuk 5.0 =0 01 == == 01 xx 0= Topalov 4.0 =0 00 == 0= =0 1= xx

"Five on the Black Hand Side" portrays an African-American family going through changes during the 1970s. The older brother Booker T. Washington Brooks is a socialist who talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk. His younger brother Gideon, is a black revolutionary who defies the father and everyone around him. Their sister is getting married and the mother, Mrs. Brooks has had it with her husband. She doesn't really want out of her marriage but she wants some change in their marriage, which not only means her, but her husband. Mrs. Brooks goes to war with help from her neigbors and children. Mr. Brooks wants the best for his children but he is too controlling of how they should live their lives which creates a friction between Gideon and him. He is also resistant to change.
This movie during its period dealt with the issues of gender within the African-American community as well as racism and socialism. I wonder if "Barbershop" got their idea from this movie!

Vishwanathan Anand has it easy
By Rakesh Rao NEW DELHI, DEC. 1. The discerning are well aware, that in chess, it is not always as easy as it looks. In what turned out to a fine demonstration of how to win from a winning position, Vishwanathan Anad walked away as the victor. In the process, he did not allow Victor Bologan to live up to his name. Much after Anand became one of the early qualifiers into the third round, K. Sasikiran went down for the second time in as many days to Dutch Loek van Wely. Now Anand remains the only Indian in the World Chess Championship here. For a few moments after shaking hands with an already- shaken Moldovian, Anand resembled Pied Piper. Horde of jubilant scribes, cameramen, players, a couple of Grandmasters simply followed this lovable champion from the playing hall to the media room for the post-match analysis. It is said, `when knowledge speaks, wisdom listens'. So when Anand spoke and the lesser mortals listened. The master- like dismissal of Bologan was explained in detail. For the discerning, it was Anand's ability to see so much more on the board and carry out the precise plan at the right moment was the key.
