Dr.N.Mahalingam passes away
He was President of All India Chess Federation between 1985 to 1989, President of Tamil Nadu Chess Association from 1975 to 1984 and later from 1999 to 2002. His singular contribution to sports in general and chess in particular is overwhelming.Long before the Government brought in a scheme of cash awards for Indians becoming International Masters and Grandmasters Dr.Mahalingam already was already having that in Tamil Nadu and when he became AICF President he extended the same to the whole of India. He gave Rs.20,000 to any one becoming IM and Rs.50,000 to any one becoming a GM. Dozens of Indian players benefitted from this scheme. When TNCA organized the Mariammal-Mahalingam FIDE Rating chess Tournament in 1983 one of the players to get his first FIDE Rating was Viswanathan Aanand. It was in the fitness of things that Anand accomplished his third and final norm at the Sakthi Finance GM Tournament sponsored by Dr.Mahalingam at Coimbatore in 1987 and became a Grandmaster.
