the air conditioner and I was too busy preparing for my meet with the world’s youngest chessInternational Master R Praggnanandhaa From my earlier interviewswith the prodigious young talent I had realized that the boy doesn’t like to speak a lot Hence there was no point in preparing questions for him Chess is the language that he loved the most and it was through some selected chess positions that I wanted to test him After travelling for 30 minutes in the hot and sweltering Chennai heat I realized that I had booked an air-conditioned cab I asked the driver to pull up the window which he reluctantly did We had already traveled three quarters of the way by now As the taxi pulled up I saved the final position and named the database as Pragg test I was happy with my work The positions I had selected were not too easy and solving ten problems in an hour would definitely test even the best in the business All three family members came out to greet me with smiles on their face I could see Pragg was a little tensed He didn’t know what exactly I was going to ask him His sister Vaishali was in Russia playing a tournament As soon as I got down from the cab Rameshbabu asked Praggnanandhaa to pick up one of my bags The boy obediently did as he was told I was given a warm welcome to their place Already the first few minutes were enough to make me understand that the family believed in simplicity and modesty Pragg might be the most prodigious talent on the planet but at home he was just an eleven-year-old boy Praggnanandhaa with his parents Nagalakshmi and Rameshbabu

physical condition my wife would have to travel all alone with the two kids And secondly sustaining two chess careers was financially not an easy task" But Praggnanandhaa’s desire to play chess overcame the father’s reluctance He had no option but to back his kids in this royal game As the kids started to improve funds started flowing in The kids received sponsorships which kept their chess career going Between Vaishali and Praggnanandhaa the family already has four world titles to their credit U-8 and U-10 for Praggnanandhaa and U-12 and U-14 for Vaishali The role of coach GM RB Ramesh has been instrumental in moulding these talents "He is not only a chess coach but also a mentor guide and philosopher" says Rameshbabu" He not only guides the kids but also the parents and tells them about the right approach towards the game" The chess academy of Ramesh is nearly one hour away but both Pragg and Vaishali never miss a class They travel either by bus or shared auto-rickshaw in order
