The top finishers are a "who's who" of the best Indian female chessplayers, but I can't help but notice that their ELOs are declining from what they used to be, when they should be going in the other direction.  Welcome to the ghetto of women's chess.  Tania Sachdev's ELO used to be above 2400.  And where were Dronavalli, Koneru and either (or both) of the Subbaraman sisters?
