Wishes For Vishy

It’s been two days since the world championship has sunk, perhaps more in the process of sinking in, for Vishy Anand and more than expressing how insanely happy the defending champion is, he’s soaking in the satisfaction of being relived.

Wishes for Viswanathan Anand

Wishes for Viswanathan Anand

Viswanathan Anand successfully beat his opponent. Israeli Boris Gelfand in a round of four games 2.5-1.5 in a tie-breaker, ending their 12 games series. After a gap of 27 years the world championship was being held in Moscow, Russia this year. Back in the year 1985, it was Garry Kasparov who beat Anatoly Karpov. While having tea in Vladimir Putin’s residence, Anand expressed how much high regards he has to the development of chess in Russia and how budding players are catered with the basic forms and styles of the game. After all, he said, it was important to grab the roots before mastering the master game itself.

Two days later and the whole of the country is still celebrating the return of the defending champion back to his land and all Anand could say was that he was too relived more than anything else at the moment. After a strenuous three-week period where both the opponents, the best in the world, were pitted against the wits of the other and the whole of the media monitoring their moves in enlarged screens, even holding your head down with both their hands did not seem private enough.

Now all Vishy Anand wants to do being at home is hold his son and spend time with his wife and parents.His wife, Aruna Anand was all smiles as she told the reporters that chess came to her the same time as her husband. She was advised to get acquainted with the chess board as she got engaged to the maestro, laughs Aruna. The last game the husband-wife played together, “he drew it”, she chuckled.

It was all about this championship for Anand. He did not stress on the challenging fact that he had to defend his title back from 2007 nor did he express any doubts on his opponent who ranks 20th at the moment. Anand just had to seize the game he had his eyes fixated upon from the start.

With sinusoidal wave of tension, nervousness, doubts and surrounding tension, Anand overcame all the checkers to be crowned the chess champion, yet again.
