  fm avari viraf: After winning the most covetous World Ama.Chess Title & a Gold Medal for India I participated in another International Chess Tournament at Hastings & sharing the 1st Runner-up Prize with my Russian friend GM Alexander Volzhin & GM Aaron Summerscale of England. The sweet memories of Hastings still linger in my mind.
