About my chess:- (NOTHING MUCH)

  • Learnt at age of 8-9 (not sure)
  • I won my "first ever" competitive game with black pieces in 2014.
  • I drew my "first ever" clash against a rated opponent Swayham P Das (1412) with black in May,2017.
  • I lost my "first ever" rated game with white pieces against Rajveer Pinkesh Nahar Oct,2018.
  • I won 3rd best unrated Prize (INR 3500) in my first FIDE rated tmt :- 1st GUJ OPEN: CAT-C, with a score of 6/10
  • Then I got stuck into studies and hence, currently not active.

Other Than Chess

  • I had won school level and Zonal level gold medals in NSO and IMO from 2014-2020.
  • I had been a regular A grader just like almost every other chess player until I fell in love with chess.
  • Currently trying to acquire knowledge in physics and math!! I really love math and passionate about physics too!
  • I was interested in Pop music when I discovered it but soon lost interest after i discovered its artists. Now I listen to Rock/Rock-Pop music (Beatles, Kinks, Monkees, CCR and Dire Straits extensively). But still prefer Classical Music over it. Bob Dylan is amazing as well.
  • I don't claim to be wise human, but I have read and followed a quite some Philosophy, Psychology and Epistemology. 
  • I love doing research and gaining & sharing knowledge & perspective.
