The mud clad bicycle, torn shoes, and a few broken teeth, all these define the genius in his own way. Praggnanandhaa lives on the outskirts of Chennai, with his family of four. His father, Babu is an Autorickshaw driver whereas his mother is a housewife. Surprisingly his sister is also an International master in chess and yet continues to teach the local slum kids.
The small space in the verandah was the perfect setup for the interview. AS we sat down, it was hard to control Praggnanandhaa's fidgetiness, as he went on scrambling things around. His dad says that is what makes him different and better than others, he just can not sit quite.
The boy, on first look, seems just like any other 11-year-old school going chap with a pinch of naughtiness. What hides behind his innocence and naughtiness is the immense talent that defeated the Paraguayan master along with 7 other champs from all over the world.
When asked why he seemed low, he replied: "I lost out on 2 points the last match and want to gain it this time". That my dear friends is his determination!
His sister vouches for his commitment to the game, as she recalls how he yet keeps score of the matches won/lost between them both. He supposedly does not like to loose, which his family finds astonishing.
The housewife and the support system to this prodigy, his mother has suffered a lot to ensure he continues his game. It's a staunch task to travel the country alongside him, irrespective of health issues and much more. She very calmly explains "He is my son, not only that, he is India's hope and I can not let my country down. This is my way of showing patriotism. When he flares the flag of our country, that day I shall sit at home".
All said and done, Praggnanandhaa is all set to take over the world with his supersonic moves on the chess table.
