Congrats Anand! The Nation Salutes You.

Dear Mr. Viswanathan Anand, please accept a bagful of congratulations for successfully defending your world champion title.

There are some people for whom making their motherland proud seems to be a regular habit. And Anand, my friend, you seem to be one of them.

The game of Chess originated in our beloved India, and thus every Indian feels that it is sort of our birth right to be the best country in this game. However, there is always a gap between mere wish and reality. And we are grateful to you for successfully bridging that gap. Anand, you are just superb!

I always take pride in the fact that I belong to such a generation of Indians which is represented by some unparalleled sports personalities, i.e. people who have created history in their respective fields. In cricket we have Sachin Tendulkar, in rifle shooting we have Abhinav Bindra, and so on. And then there is one from the game of Chess – the great Viswanathan Anand.

May the almighty shower you with all the choicest blessings of life, and empower you to fulfill each and every dream that you have in your life.

Please also permit me to express my sincere wishes and regards for each and every member of your family, whose relentless support has always enabled you to move forward through the thick and thin of professional and personal life.
