Kudos to the kid for the Vibudhi marker on his head. Be proud of your roots. 

Thar's up to the individual. Some people take pride in traditions, others (like me) dont really put much stock in doing things the way my ancestors did them just because it is tradition..  Neither path is worthy of derision. Just let people have their own way as long as they are not hurting others.

Havent followed the Chess games for a while but remember Praggu was the most talked about prodigee in the junior circuit with his early GM.

 

Great that he has managed to make his way among the big boys now. No better way to announce that than beating the GOAT.

So the kid Pragg beat Carlsen (again!!!!) last month. 52 yo Anand smashed Carlsen twice last week in Stavanger, should have won the classical duel but couldn't convert, absolute dominance otherwise. 

 

Tough time for the Norwegian champ against Indian GMs both old and young. Just the beginning, we have an army of super strong GMs ready to take over. 5-10 years max, after that chess will be synonymous with India/Indians like how it was with the Soviets 40-50 years ago.

yes, the next gen is all set. likewise, even in hockey, we have a good transition plan. just in 'effin cricket where oldies continue to linger forever.

 

what do you make of Alireza Firouzja? he could be someone who stands in the way of total Ind dominance.

Think Alireza is destined to be a world champ, reminds me of young Anand and not just the speed. GM Sokolov said the same much before his meteoric rise. https://www.chessbase.in/news/Sokolov-on-Iran-chess 

French federation will take good care of him unlike the Iranians. 

 

Esipenko is another big threat, but unclear about status of Russian chess prospects after Putin's madness, they are facing bans in most tournaments and hence may never fulfil their potential. Already because of COVID many youngsters were denied valuable game time (during formative years when we see max rating jumps, increase in chess understanding etc.) much to the delight of the Carlsen generation. Then there is the German Keymer (trained under Anand because of the Hans-Walter Schmitt connection), couple of strong Uzbeks and American kids. Rest of the contenders are our boys, as per Kramnik 4-5 of them have WC potential. So expecting great things even if Alireza is a hindrance for a few years.
