World No. 2 Magnus Carlsen will not participate in next year’s candidate’s matches basically to find the challenger for champion Viswanathan Anand in 2012. The World No. 1 superstar of Norwegian in this year until he was replaced by Vishwanath Anand in November 1, has given a written application to FIDE President Kiran Ilyumzhinov and has raised questioned about the present World Championship cycle demanding abolition of the privileges enjoyed by current champion (Anand in this case). “After having a close look I have reached towards the conclusion that the present 2008-2012 cycle does not have a specific system, sufficiently modern and fair, to be in touch and rhythm I need to go through very long procedures and matches, if need to perform my very best” said Carlsen in his letter.

For the improvement of future cycles, Carlsen suggested few ways as he said “As of my opinion privileges being enjoyed should be vanished and instead future world championship should be based on fair battle against the best players in the world, and on equal terms. The same must also be apply to the winner of the previous World Championship, and essentially when there are several players who are approximately at the same level in world elite” He further added raising the question that why should one player have one out of two tickets for directly in final while neglecting all the other players in the world? Just imagine that the world cup 2010 champion has directly qualified to 2014 world cup finals while the rest of the other teams have to battle out for the other remaining spots.

“There could be one very good possibility in future cycle that there must be a competition between 8-10 players for world championship tournament as same that was done in 2005 and 2007 events.” said Carlsen. This suggestion of abolishment of privileges of the World Champion in future doesn’t mean that, I m at criticising or attacking the reigning champion, who is Vishwanath Anand, he fully deserves the top spot and being  role model colleague of mine is a huge esteemed opponent” said Carlsen.

Hello everyone this is Ronak Parekh and I’m currently student of S.Y.B.M.M. I’m 20 years old from Mumbai. I choose my career in B.M.M because I always wanted to do something which is of my interest. And my passion has always been sports especially cricket and F1. I really want to be linked with sports in my future. B.M.M course gives the opportunity in journalism from where I can move to sports category. When I was child I always used to play and watch cricket a lot which usually most of the people does. I gained my interest in F1 due to only one man and that was none other than seven time world champion Michael Schumacher. Actually I’m also very passionate about cars so it is really fun when I see this sport. Today I’m really excited about getting an opportunity to do internship for three months with the sports mirror, where I will have full freedom to express my views and opinions regarding every sport. I definitely will try my best to write the articles as good as possible which would be worth interesting for readers. I really whole heartedly thanking the sports mirror again for giving me this vital opportunity and I promise I will make the most of it.
