Hi - I am from Bangalore, India - the new silicon valley of the world ! I learnt go many years ago while pursuing my graduate studies in the USA. I wasnt able to devote much time to study this wonderful game mainly due to a busy career, family and my other great love - chess ! I got to about 2246 FIDE in chess and this is possibly close to my limits in this game as an amateur. Recently I took up go again although studying it in distant India which is far removed from the Go world is not easy ! I play at about 5 kyu strength on KGS and hope to keep improving over the coming year. Drop me a line if you wish to share your experiences learning this wonderful game !
