Nature has such beautiful mathematical patterns that we should appreciate. It was such an enriching experience Sai Akhil Anand,” the Indian grandmaster tweeted.

In August of this year, Viswanathan Anand began his new role as vice president of Fide. “I want to expand our geographic footprint and continue to work to get more young people into the game – that’s crucial for the long-term growth of the game. We must continue to promote chess in India because it is an important market and an important country. A lot of people here play the game, but it can expand a lot more. These are the areas I will focus on, but I think Fide is already on the right track in this area, so it will be easy for me to fit in,” he had told the India Express before being chosen.
