At a time when chess meant cold war rivalry between names like Bobby Fischer and Anatoly Karpov, it was Viswanathan Anand that had put India on the world chess map. He became the first Grandmaster from India in 1988. He’s a five time World Chess Champion, the first sportsman to win the Padma Vibhushan and has even had a minor planet named after him. In this episode he talks to Sandip about how he deals with losing, why he admires John McEnroe, his autobiography ‘Mind Master: Winning Lessons from a Champion’s Life’ and more.
