I have come to think of chess as Caissa's grace.By means of a miraculous conception,she has delivered an abundantly fertile game where every contest has a new character and we ourselves are given many new lives.It is just a tribute to the greatness of CHESS that some tireless researchers spend the better part of their life seeking the TRUTH and end up with the proverbial cup only half full.Fertile to the imagination,frustrating complex and yet elegantly simple,colourful,weaving a story as harsh as life can offer and yet forever youthful,dynamic and inspiring the best qualities within the human spirit.Chess will always attract new adherents,Chess will never stand still.I AM ONE OF THOSE,madly attracted to chess.
Rated around 2250,i aspire to become a top GM.I am one person who gave up graduation and is currently doing nothing other than cracking chess of its nuances.People all around me keep telling me to go back to the prestitgious insitution i got admission to and there are people who even consider me a retard to have dropped out.But can they understand what I am in search of.They cant understand that i want to leave a chess legacy behind when I leave this world.Thats y,i never complain to those who can never understand.Because I know that what I want to be is a chess professional.
The question you must ask yourself is :
Do I like what I see in the chess mirror ?
What chess Legacy will I leave in the World ?
How will my favourite ideas,novelties and openings survive ?
Will my games stand the TEST OF TIME??!!
The Worldchampion I adore the most is ROBERT JAMES FISCHER.His amazing series of wins over taimanov,larsen and petrosian in the candidates and then demolition of the great SPASSKY in WC 1972.The first time i heard of the word chess around 2001,i heard the name FISCHER too.If i become something good enough to be asked,WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK,i would always reply that FISCHER'S My Sixty Memorable Games was my bedside book.
But I believe that Kasparov was the strongest player ever.Partly because of the advancement in modern technology which played a significant role in understanding chess better and partly because of his workaholism and 100% professionalism towards chess,GARRY raised the level of chess to another platform.
I am also a fan of VISHY ANAND,who is from my own country.Also enjoy looking at games of ANATOLY KARPOV and VLADIMIR KRAMNIK.Games of TAL,PETROSIAN AND SPASSKY in their peak eyes still widen my eyes.BOTVINNIK's deep strategic plans and iron consistent logic and SMYSLOV's deep endgame knowledge were lessons to be grasped.Who can not enjoy the games of CAPABLANCA and ALEKHINE.And this explains that,My favourite book till date is MY GREAT PRESDESSORS 1-5.Must thank GARRY more than anyone else.
The way MAGNUS CARLSEN is playing in 2010(aged 19),i believe he can take the game one step ahead if he sincerely wishes to.
MAYBE I CAN TOO,SOMEDAY.Hopes,WHATS LIFE WITHOUT DREAMS?
