One of the friendliest IMs you would hope to meet and a great favourite amongst the juniors.

A resident of England since around 1980

India's second IM and first vegan IM.

A great asset to chess in Hertfordshire


Happy Birthday to IM Vaidyanathan Ravikumar (26-xii-1959)

I remember his 'double act' with Andrew Martin at the British, it was very entertaining.
