A S Subbaraman - a visionary man

By Sriram Jha

India is commonly known as the Birthplace of the magnificent mind game of Chess, but the game was not very popular in India in early 1980's and before. Women's chess was lacking behind even more so. But the situation was about to change. In a modest flat in the KK Nagar suburb of Chennai a family of five with three daughters and parents lived. The father A S Subbaraman was working as an engineer in PTC, the local Government Transport Corporation. He decided to teach his elder daughter Vijayalakshmi who was 3.5 years at that time the game of chess.

Viji's parents - mother Rani and father A S Subbaraman 

It was unheard off during those days. There was no support for chess from anywhere those days. Both father and daughter used to travel every day to Tal Chess Club, the meeca of chess those days which was quiet far from their house to play blitz games and learn from senior players. After that the father and daughter duo started playing chess day and night, travelling to different tournaments in the state and other parts of the Country. The girl won everything which came her way due to the hard work put in by her and the father. She won all the age group national titles of India starting from under-10 category and went on to win Six National senior titles which is a record till date.

Viji is congratulated by her father after she becomes India's first WGM in 2000

In the year 2000 she became the First ever Women Grandmaster (WGM) of India thereby creating history. The Government of India honored Viji with the prestigious Arjuna Award in the year 2001 for her path breaking record. Viji then went on to become the men's GM elect in the year 2007 by scoring three GM norms which was a huge achievement at that time and also by today's standards. She also scored silver medal on top board in two Chess Olympiads at Bled and Istanbul which is also a record till date. All this was possible only because of sacrifices made by her father Subbaraman who was her only coach and guide. The vision of that man made it possible for Viji to become the trailblazer in Indian Women's Chess.

Everything came to a standstill for Viji on August 15th 2007 when Subbaraman suffered a massive Heart attack and passed away. The great man chose the historical day of 15th August to say goodbye to the world. Viji almost left playing chess after that day and only returned to play sporadically after a few years. 12 years after he was gone an idea took shape to conduct a Tournament in the memory of the man who gave India its First Woman Grandmaster. Nowadays Chess is booming in India with more than 90000 registered Chess players, 64 Grandmasters, 9 WGM's and many other title holders, and a huge credit is due to visionaries like A S Subbaraman who thought it was possible to create champions in Chess half a century ago!

The one day Blitz Rating Tournament which carried the impressive prize fund of ₹1,60,000/- attracted a total of 468 players from different parts of the country. This was a very encouraging response from the players considering the fact that the tournament was officially announced only on August 3rd which is just twelve days before the start of the tournament. The players list included a very impressive 8 GM, an IM, 3 WGM, and 3 WIM's. The top seed of the tournament was the current National Champion in all three formats (Classical, Rapid and Blitz) Aravindh Chithambaram along with super GM's SP Sethuraman and Karthikeyan Murali and many other strong grandmasters. India's super coach RB Ramesh was also playing in the tournament and this was his first appearance in any Indian tournament in more than 10 years. Current Indian women champion WGM Bhakti Kulkarni along with WGM R Vaishali, sister of the wonder boy GM Pragnnanandhaa were other star players of the event.
