Rs.566583 raised for coach Durgesh, Play for him this Saturday

by Shahid Ahmed - 16/09/2020

After publishing an article nine days ago about Durgesh, a well-known chess trainer from Bangalore, who suffered from brain haemorrhage and is in the hospital fighting for his life, the chess community has once again come and took a stand together for a noble cause. We have had 297 donors and managed to raise Rs. 5,66,583. Although his surgery is completed, the path to recovery is long and he will need quite a bit of financial resources to get through this phase of his life. Durgesh's good friend Sushrutha Reddy sponsored Rs.50,000 as the prize fund for the tournament that will be held on this Saturday 19th of September 2020. Entry is FREE for all irrespective of title, rating or location. However we request you to donate whatever you can, there is no minimum donation amount.

Durgesh is a fighter and the chess community will try and ensure that he wins this battle!

As a chess coach you earn when you teach. Durgesh's insurance and savings are fast drying up and he has no one to take care of his expenses. In such a scenario, we appealed to the chess community to contribute towards Durgesh's health. All the money collected would be donated to him. Here's how people have responded over the past nine days. Total ₹566583 has been raised by the following people:

On the 3rd of August evening a shocking misfortune befell the chess fraternity of Bangalore as Durgesh K, the city's much loved chess coach and the Tattva Chess Academy co-founder, collapsed at his residence from a major cerebral stroke. The 39-year-old was rushed immediately to the nearby Trustwell Hospital in JC Road where he spent the next three weeks, following a successful brain surgery, languishing in coma. Durgesh also tested positive for Covid-19 during the post operative care and although since then he has recovered well from this, his condition otherwise continues to remain critical. Needless to say, there has been no end to woes for the chess player and his family. They have been already billed over rupees 14 lakh and in the coming months, to meet the various needs of long-term medical care, the expenses are only expected to go through the roof.

 

Meanwhile, Durgesh's limited financial resources have almost dried up, his modest insurance coverage of 10 lakh rupees has been long exceeded, add to this the litany of formalities involved in the process of settling insurance claims—a health crisis of this magnitude for any middle-class family can be quite backbreaking. However, a ray of hope has come in these dark hours from the fellow chess players and chess coaches of Bangalore, who have assembled to fight beside Durgesh and raise funds to meet the increasing costs of his medical treatment.

No matter what it takes, Durgesh's friends from the chess community are absolutely determined to bring him back home.

Durgesh has a reputation of being an exceptionally committed chess coach. To quote the words of veteran chess mentor Bharat Vijay: "Durgesh makes learning fun...We know that everyone should respect their teacher but Durgesh is that unique teacher who respects his students, patiently answering all their questions on a variety of topics from chess to Kaala Jamun! His commitment to students is tremendous. He just gives his time, heart and intellect to the well-being of his students." 

 

Well, Durgesh's contribution to the royal game doesn't stop here. He is also credited for founding the Tattva Chess Academy along with his friends Arvind Shastry and Manjunath Jayaram in 2016, which has emerged into of the finest academies in Bangalore today. It high time therefore that the country's larger chess community supports one of its best assets during his most dire plight.

 

The ChessBase India team implores its readers to come forward and help out in this urgent cause. Money is the need of the moment and here's how you can donate:

About online tournaments on Playchess by ChessBase India:

ChessBase India has organized innumerable online events successfully. Here is some feedback about the quality of the events:

GM Vaibhav Suri, winner of Letsup MCA Grand Prix and 2nd ChessBase Online Blitz tournament

The tournament was conducted quite smoothly and a quite "fun Sunday" event. The participation of Adhiban & Sethuraman definitely added the spark to the event. I guess an Online Blitz Festival would be the next way to go (with different formats - Chess960, Bughouse, Bullet etc). Overall really happy with such events. Way to go!!

 

GM R R Laxman, multi-time National Blitz Champion

I thank the  Chessbase India team once more for their strenous and tireless endeavour to popularise blitz events in India. Considering the fact that the present day time control  even in classical format ( unlike the yesteryears)  demands quick reflexes and blitz skills  , I feel that the entire Chessbase India team is doing an exemplary and praiseworthy job. A boon for Indian chess !!!. Though my performance this time was not satisfactory ,I hope to excel and cherish more pleasant memories from my side in the forthcoming editions of Chessbase India blitz events.

 

Tushar Bohra, father of Kanishk Bohra

Thanks for enrolling Kanishk for the event. He had a great time playing the games. And a great overall experience.

 

D Gukesh, youngest GM of India

I am extremely happy to have participated in my first online blitz tmt conducted by ChessBase India and loved the experience and thrill. from the start to the finish its professionally conducted and got the rare opportunity to play several high-class players in a single event and looking forward for its next event

 

Priti Mahendru, mother of Jaiveer Mahendru

This was our second chessbase online blitz event. My son is 8 years and it was an absolute thrill for him to be playing against titled players ! Thanks a lot for organizing this. We look forward to more such events !

 

Kushagra Mohan

I was happy the way the tournament was conducted. No problems at all. You just keep increasing the prize money and that is a big improvement.Cannot hope for more.

Some heartfelt words for Durgesh from Sushrutha Reddy

Sushruta is Durgesh's childhood friend and also a fellow chess trainer from Bangalore. In this section we include his words to understand Durgesh and the trauma he is going through right now better. 

Chess remained my favorite game from the time I learnt it at the age of four. I met Durgesh in a Chess Tournament sometime in 1995 when I was in the ninth standard. He then returned back to professional tournaments after a couple of years. He always said he was surprised to meet someone who could recognize him even though he played just one tournament. I invited him home that day and he reluctantly said no. Durgesh stayed very close to my house at Basavanagudi at that point of time. Soon, we would meet daily - primarily for Movies and Restaurants! The first movie I showed him was Matrix and it remains his most favorite movie until today.

 

Durgesh was my first regular chess Partner when it came to travelling to chess tournaments outside Bangalore. There would be times when he would say No. I would still ensure I help him resolve whatever is stopping him and make him come along with me to various chess tournaments. Our bonding became strong within a year. Little did I know that he was going to be walking into the most challenging times of his life. His family was undergoing a major economic crisis due to an accident his father met with while dropping the kids to school. Prior to the accident, his father had just stepped into a business venture after procuring loans. As a result of the accident, his father lost his finger and his job, and eventually the family had to sell their house as well.

 

During the next few years, Durgesh supported his sisters' education, worked himself, and eventually became a Chartered Accountant! He even used to go away to his maternal home at Vijayawada during these times to resist the temptation of going out with me for movies or chess. However, I must add that each time Durgesh wanted to quit chess, I would force him back in. Why? I dreamt that one day we would promote chess across schools in Bangalore. We had passionately dreamt to bring in more kids into the game of chess together. 

Way back in 2011, Durgesh giving away an iPad along with trophy and cash prize to Amardeep Bartakke for winning the 2nd Edition of Bangalore Open.

The same year in the Karnataka State Chess Championship.

An opportunity came knocking in 2002-03. Hanumantha Rajanna proposed that I start chess coaching. This place was found by Meena Sudhindra and the name of the Institute was Surabhi. I fell asleep while teaching a kid on that particular day and decided that chess coaching is NOT for me. However, I felt that I might let down Hanumantha if I quit, so I introduced him to Durgesh instead and guaranteed that he would not let him down. This was how Durgesh entered chess coaching. 

Durgesh with his young students...

What distinguishes Durgesh as a coach is the patience with which he is able to deal with students and it's an attribute he is absolutely adored for.

Soon, Durgesh shared that he loved teaching chess to children. But he wanted to quit playing! But I always wanted him to be with me when I go outside Bangalore to a Chess Tournament! However, after he completed his studies, he joined Arvind Mills and thereafter joined the Al-Hasan group of companies at Muscat. At that point, I thought he was gone away from chess for good. 

 

Yet, at Muscat, he started imparting chess training to students. This gave me a hope. Eventually, in 2008, he confided in me about how lonely he felt at Muscat and he realized that he loved chess a lot. I told him to return to Bangalore and embarked on a plan of setting up training centres. From this point on, there was no looking back for Durgesh as a Coach. It was Suresh Kumar Janardhanan who generated interest in Durgesh as a player! Life from hereon became much different. I always would stop teaching by evening (I eventually got into Coaching in 2006). Durgesh would continue teaching into late hours. From this point during the last 6 or 7 years, I started missing the Durgesh with whom I would go to movies, restaurants, etc. We started meeting rarely - but would talk on phone regularly. Suresh Kumar too became his closest friend. Chess had become his life. 

As part of the Innovators Chess Academy in 2014.

He left Innovators Chess Academy in 2015 and formed the Tattva Chess Academy in 2016 and got even busier. He was extremely successful in his profession. He overworked, returned home tired and was stressed and always wanted to get away from various personal issues that bogged him down constantly. The result was that his blood pressure shot up, he fainted several times during the past few years. These were the warning signs that he kept ignoring that culminated in the haemorrhage he suffered on August 3 at 10.10 pm.

I have written so far about what Durgesh was to me. Now I will about the struggles that he had to go through:

 

The first few days of our friendship puzzled me. He was always calm and subdued with me while I was the opposite. He would come to me daily and it looked like as if he loved my company. He soon started opening up. I got to know that he was a topper in class 10 and had dreams of studying in the IIT - dreams that were eventually shattered. It was initially happy times for Durgesh and his family. His father, Kumaraswamy was a Banker with Canara Bank and he had taken a risk by quitting his job foraying into a new venture of lorry business. 

 

Kumaraswamy's business endeavour was wrecked with heavy financial loss and to pay off his loans, he had to sell his house in Chamarajpet, Bangalore. This had a direct bearing on his personal life. The education of his three children was discontinued and daily fights ensued at home which eventually resulted in the parents separating. 

 

Post separation, Durgesh's father lived in a small room in Majestic, Bangalore. Durgesh lived with his mother and two sisters in a very small house (10x10 ft) with no electricity and water - I have visited this house and it came as a shock to me as to how four of them lived there. Durgesh's mother wasn't literate and thus could not get a job. Kumaraswamy would visit occasionally, giving some money and leave. 

 

I used to observe Durgesh's mother being quite violent and aggressive and this was vindicated in depth when I spoke to his sister, Rajeshwari, earlier last month (August, 2020).  Rajeshwari  said that Durgesh would never complain or cry and instead, remained empathetic towards his mother throughout his life.With Kumaraswamy's health taking a hit, there were days when the kids and their mother would struggle for food. Durgesh at this stage as a teenager started selling Magnetic headbands by travelling door to door in the neighbourhood. He would procure it in the Kumbarpet Market in Bangalore and sell them at MRP. His younger sister Rajeshwari says, "Durgesh was like a Godfather to us. Even though he had no money in his pocket, he took me to Vani Vilas College and pleaded with the Principal to admit me into the College." She also remembers her friends' and Teachers at Jnanodaya School who helped in funding their School fees. 

 

Soon in 2001, Durgesh decided that he had to further his sister's education. He joined Hotel Surya (a lodge at Majestic, Bangalore) as a receptionist. While Durgesh and Vijayalakshmi studied in the National Open School, he furthered his sister Rajalakshmi's education by getting her admitted to Maharani's College where the admission fee was Rs 800 at the time. 

 

He eventually completed his studies and I remember his first job was with Arvind Mills. Life started looking up financially for Durgesh. He soon got a job with a much better pay and this time it was at Muscat. The very reason that he went to Muscat was to have his sisters married. Financially life improved, whereas on the personal front challenges remained. The results of a tumultuous childhood eventually started showing on adult life.

 

It was only late into the current decade that Durgesh managed to get his sisters married. In 2016, his mother passed away in solitude. Her death became known to her neighbors only after two days from the foul smell of her putrefying body.  Durgesh got to know the update only through the police. On that day, I was present with him in a chess tournament where he was leading with a score of 5/5. He went completely blank on hearing the news of his mother.  

 

Gradually, Durgesh's health declined.  His Blood Pressure shot up and he fainted frequently. In 2015, he confessed to me that he was dealing with depression. Parents of his students and friends requested him several times to take care of his health.  In the month preceding the present crisis, Durgesh would often break down into tears, crying unusually. This left his father very perplexed as Durgesh never cried in his life, not even when his parents separated.

During happier times: 7-time Karnataka State Champion N Sanjay handing the best academy trophy to Innovators Chess Academy coaches - Sushruta, Durgesh, and Sanjay Sindhia.

Every penny collected by the ChessBase India Foundation will be donated to Durgesh and will be used for his recovery. It's time for us to Play for Durgesh, and raise funds for him. Hope you will join in this cause.
