Their travels across India to understand the chess scenario brought home to Sagar Shah, Co-founder, Chessbase India, the country’s biggest chess news portal, and wife Amruta the incredible talent that is waiting to be tapped.
Starting 2017, the Shahs visited 44 cities and recorded 1,500 videos of different players and found stories of rare grit and determination. “We found kids who were so dedicated to chess that they had given up their education to focus on the game”, recalls Shah. “We met a parent who had given up his job so he could help his son pursue chess and also organizers going out of their way to encourage the game.”
