Chennai: Ramesh Babu, father of Indian Grandmaster R Praggnanandhaa, who created history despite losing to Magnus Carlsen in the FIDE World Cup final, is very happy. Expressing happiness over their performance, Ramesh Babu said that their performance a day after the successful landing of Chandrayaan 3 has again made India proud. The 18-year-old Praggnanandhaa, who defeated the heavyweights to make it to the title clash, failed to cross the final hurdle as he lost 1.5-0.5 in the tiebreak to world number one Carlsen in the final in Baku on Thursday.

His father Ramesh Babu said, ‘We never put pressure on him. I am very happy with his performance. He was playing against the number one player in the world and the silver medal is also a big achievement.

He has performed beyond my expectation. His game improved with every match. After the successful landing of Chandrayaan 3 yesterday, it has given another chance to make the country proud by performing like this in the FIDE World Cup today.

Asked how his family would celebrate the victory, he said, “Right now he is going to play another tournament in Germany.” Normally after his victory we go to the temple to worship and will do the same.

Ramesh Babu, who works as a Deputy General Manager in a bank, manages the household along with work as his wife often accompanies Pragyanananda to tournaments. His daughter R. Vaishali is also a chess player and Pragyanananda was also interested in seeing her.

Ramesh Babu said, ‘Vaishali used to watch a lot of TV in her childhood, so we put her in chess to divert her attention. Neither I nor his mother knew how to play chess, but Pragyanananda also got interested after seeing his sister and then he kept moving forward. Ramesh Babu, a fan of Sachin Tendulkar himself, said, ‘The Prime Minister and Sachin have also congratulated Pragyanananda. It is a matter of pride for us.
