Barua: Kasparov will be under pressure

Five students of the city-based Dibyendu Barua Chess Academy won medals. They were Woman Fide Master Arpita Mukherjee (gold, under-20 girls), Woman Grandmaster Mary Ann Gomes (silver, women), Fide Master Mitrabha Guha (silver, under-16 boys), Sinthia Sarkar (silver, under-10 girls) and Woman Candidate Master Chandreyee Hajra (bronze, under-18 girls).

Arpita, Mary and Sinthia were present at the function, while others could not make it due to their participation in events outside the state.

“Mary needs no introduction, but Arpita is just 16 years of age and has a very bright future. With some self-confidence, she can do absolutely fantastic. It is too early for Sinthia, but this will surely inspire her to do better,” said Barua.
