The Excerpt from the Article about Mitul:
Mitul has been keenly followed by Chess experts in Karnataka and has been identified as potential future GM. Two years ago, I identified Mitul as a talent to watch out for and shared the same with his parents. At the age of four and a half, Mitul was introduced to chess to keep him engaged in a challenging activity.
Looking at his sustained interest, Mitul was admitted into formal chess coaching when he was aged five. Since then he is training under Chess Gurukul, Chennai, run by GM R. B. Ramesh and WGM Aarthie Ramaswamy. His first coach at Chess Gurukul was Mr. Saravanan who taught him the fundamentals and tactics of the game. The child loved solving complex chess problems which only enhanced his creative ability. Mitul obtained his FIDE rating before completing six years of age – an achievement of sorts as only a miniscule number of children have obtained their FIDE Rating by the age of six. Subsequently, he was taught positional analysis by Ganesh, and it was under his tutelage when Mitul gradually improved his game playing many tournaments. In 2016, he finished second in the State Under 7 Open Chess Championship and was selected to represent Karnataka in the National under-7 championship. He finished eleventh in the Nationals.
Mitul became the Under-7 champion in the Karnataka State Schools Chess Championship and finished fourth in National Schools. Apart from chess, Mitul likes to play badminton and cricket. He is studying in third grade in Global Indian International School, Bangalore. He is a topper in academics and has achieved international first rank in Math Olympiad.
GIIS wishes Mitul ALL THE BEST for the future chess championships! Keep Shining High in the world of Chess!!
