Chess in India
From the Telegraph - Calcutta, India: Wednesday March 25, 2009: Imphal: The Manipur Chess Association is organising the Women’s B 19th Under-17 Boys and Girls Chess Championship at Chingmeirong from April 5. I don't think it's just my imagination. There has been a definite increase in the number and magnitude of chess events being held in India since Anand ascended to the World Chess Champion title. GM Koneru Humpy's recent victory at the first FIDE Women's Chess Grand Prix event just adds fuel to the fire! Go, India, Go!
