Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-13  shivasuri4: In the ongoing 2013 World Cup, Akash fought valiantly against Fabiano Caruana, but was outplayed in the late middlegame stages.
Aug-16-13  SamAtoms1980: So we know his exact date of birth but not his full name?

Never seen that before.

Aug-16-13  BlackFront: Any relation to <Ali G>?

Aug-16-13  Shams: Edgar Cayce used to listen to his albums.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: His first name is 72 letters and won't fit.

  perfidious: Any loss to this player shall go against one's Akashic Record.

Caruana may count himself one of the fortunate not to have gone down before Mr Akash.

  jith1207: <SamAtoms1980> In India, it's quite common to have a single Name, followed by Initial and not having a surname or father's name or family name. Naming convention differs a lot from Western World and many Indians would have more than two names, none of these referring to family or surname. Sri Lankans for example normally have more than 4 names and some of them abbreviated to Initials.

In this case, G refers to Akash's Dad's first letter, thus converted to an Initial which is normal in his native.
