A Tribute to Vishwanathan Anand
by Nandlal Kanjibhai Panchol
Bookmark and Share
  Let tricolor with glory be unfurled
For Vishy has won the world
He mastered the game of black and white squares
Now world at him with wonder stares
Bishop, knight, king and pawn
With golden glow have shone
His mother taught him initial moves
Which decisive in his victory proves

Double checks
Discovered checks
Queening a pawn on the eighth rank
Have been his fondest prank
His knights are formidable and invincible
Which render opponent's castle weak and feeble
Oft with Queen's Gambit
He lures his rival into defeat's ambit
His imaginative openings
Carries seeds of hidden stings
His end-games are fraught with chance
Which the suspense of chess enhance
By pushing rivals to humiliating retreat
He ensures their ultimate defeat
What his rivals fume and fret
Are Anand's irremediable checkmates
He hardly allows a stalemate to prevail
But builds a pressure till opponents'
Neurons begin to fail...

He leaves no space for moves
Which indisputably his supremacy proves
We are proud of you, Vishy
You have inspired millions to learn chess
And given chess a proud and paramount place.
