The Chess Player of Mr Gillam published my book "The Game of Chess (Western and Native Methods)" in October 2009.

Encouraged by his interest in chess activities in India, I suggested to him the publication of one more book, the games played at the Ahmedabad Invitation Tournament way back in 1955. To my delight, he readily agreed to this suggestion. I sincerely thank him for the same.

Though Westerners accept that the game of chess originated in India, they have always given a step-motherly treatment to the chess activities in that country. The ChessBase 2010 Database that boasts that it contains 4.5 million games does not include even a handful of games played in India prior to the emergence of Anand (none even of 660 off-hand games played by John Cochrane alone in Calcutta between 1848 and 1860) - not to mention it does not contain any game from Ahmedabad 1955!

I would be inclined to call it a success if the publication of the two books by Mr Gillam helps in improving this scenario in the West at least to certain extent.

Though I possessed scores of all 69 games, four of them were not clear and needed to be deciphered. Dr Ambar Chatterjee, a scientist from BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre) and editor of The AICCF Bulletin for 10 years (1998-2008), was kind enough to help me in this regard. I take this opportunity to thank him for the same.
